Summary: As a brand, Audi has often stood in the shadow of its German rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz. One way Audi has worked to distinguish itself from other premium car makers is through innovative design. As impressive as many of their recent efforts have been, Audi may have created their finest work to date with the Audi R8. Combining an agile mid-engine layout, quattro all-wheel drive and a surprisingly easy-to-drive nature, the R8 isn't just a work of art, it's a super car made for everyday driving.
