The Audi R8's well proportioned design screams speed. The R8's leather-clad cockpit is spacious and well appointed. Even the R8's manual six-speed gear shifter is elegant. The European Audi R8 will also be the first production vehicle to feature all-LED headlights. The Audi R8 also features an optional Bang & Olufsen sound system.

6-speed manual or automatic
# Manual: 13 mpg city / 20 mpg highway

Smooth, sleek and bullet like. Its wide stance and deceptively long body add to its intimidating exterior.
The seats hold you firmly in even the tightest of corners.
Front, knee and side air bags. Precise handling, stability control and anti-lock brakes.
Fast and furious.
Pros: Beautiful and beastly:
Will be noticed everywhere you go. Other super sports cars are often considerably more.
Don't drive it to any Green Peace meetings. Powerful engine means more fuel consumption.
