The Audi R8 is an everyday supercar

Let’s start off with the obvious one, the R8 can be described as an ‘everyday’ supercar. Fast e cars are generally cumbersome to drive slowly around town, but the Audi is smooth, with good visibility and ground clearance (no need to worry about pesky speed bumps). You could commute in your Audi R8, and every morning you’d look forward to getting in it. You can’t say that about most supercars.

The V10 engine can be tamed, but why bother?

As we mentioned on the previous slide, the Audi R8 is very easy to drive slowly, power delivery is smooth, and thanks to the slick 7-speed S tronic gearbox, gear changes are instantaneous and unnoticeable. That’s in comfort mode of course. Things get a little more interesting when you turn the drive select into Dynamic or Sport. The entry-level V10 produces 540 ps (around 532 bhp), and 540 Nm of torque. This powers the car to a very quick 60kms. It’s the fastest naturally aspirated car you can buy, so it sounds glorious as well, with no turbo to ruin the fun.

Driver focused interior 

The interior of the Audi R8 mimics the exterior, with taught, sculptured lines creating an aggressive look. Everything is covered in soft-touch leather and aimed towards the driver. To use a phrase, it’s a real ‘driver’s cabin’. Sitting in the passenger seat there’s really not that much to do, just sit back and enjoy the ride. All of the controls are easily within reach. The infotainment system is placed behind the wheel, and the seats are very secure and comfortable. It’s a very pleasant place to be.

It has a stunning appearance

Just look at the car, it’s beautiful. The R8 is slightly more angular than the outgoing model, the front grille is more aggressive, but it’s very fitting for such a powerful car. It’s still more understated than a lot of cars, but despite that, it receives a lot of attention while driving it around Richmond Hill.
