About Audi R8

The beauty of modern exotic cars like the 2018 Audi R8 goes far below the sexy skin. Rather than just occasional playthings for the rich, so uncomfortable in daily driving that they're taken out only on weekends, the Audi R8 exemplifies the modern exotic. It sacrifices none of the high-powered straight-line performance or track-specific handling expected from an exotic car costing in the $200,000 range. However, like its Acura NSX and Porsche 911 Turbo competition, the Audi R8 is just as comfortable when driven to and from the track, or even to the grocery store or on a daily commute. The Audi R8, all-new last year, is wider, faster and lighter than its predecessor, yet its elegant interior never lets you forget it's an Audi.
