Owned couple sport cars, I would say this R8 has the most Exterior Styling*, vs power I believe the R-tronic Transmission is garage delay not responsing when it needs to. ONE advise if you are buying this car PLEASE either buy brand new one or buy with CPO **cerfied** or elc it would be painful to visit the dealer and the Money out of your packet would be more then you expected.

One of the Best Sports Cars out There

Which car is quite underpriced, gets to 60mph in 4.1 seconds, handles very well, and is quite luxurious? The Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG! But that's $200,000. There's something else I was thinking of that's cut price, and even cooler looking, and less show-offy. The Audi R8! Power might be limited for a very-high-performance / almost exotic two-door, but Audi's flagship sports car's competitors are at least $60,000 more. These include the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG, Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG, Lamborghini Gallardo, and Ferrari F430. Let's get specific. (2009 prices) The R8 is $114,000. The SL65 AMG is $200,000. The CL63 AMG is $192,000. The Lamborghini Gallardo is $177,000. And yes, the Mercedes SL63 AMG is way less expensive than the SL65, though it's still pricier than the R8, and it gets to 60mph in 4.5, compared to the R8's 4.1. The car is very luxurious, with standard features including a voice-activated navigation system, heated and cooled leather steering wheel with radio, climate, and navigation system controls, remote start, seat and foot massage, and so much more. The Corvette ZR1 might be $6,000 less and get to 60mph in 0.7 seconds faster, but it's not nearly as nice as the R8. Looking performance, luxury, safety, and pricewise, you will not find a better sports car for $114,000.

This car launches Audi into a new era and I look forward to seeing many more cars of similar quality and performance. Totally awesome driving experience. Makes my old TT look like a Mini! The only thing stopping me recommending the R8 is that I like the fact that there aren't too many on the road... :-)

Leaves any Porsche 911 blushing at the lights. Don't be scared to floor it. You will be at 100mph in less than 5 seconds. Very comfortable at top speed. Very well balanced car and superior to any Porsche or Ferrari I have driven in a controlled slide. Good in the wet too. Get one. Makes marriage less of a pain.
