2008 Audi R8 Long Term Road Test

2008 Audi R8: They've Raised Their Shields, Captain

January 06, 2009

First off, I can't take credit for this nice shot. My esteemed colleague Kurt Niebuhr shot while taking details of this car for a photo contest entry.

Not wanting to walk home after the shoot, I drove over to my girlfriends place since she has a garage to park this beauty in. It was a tight fit amongst the other cars and posts. I never knew a car could have so many tones and chirps telling you what's close, what isn't and stop now before you ram into that post.


I felt like I was on the bridge of the Enterprise and Khan was reciting Shakespeare.
