2008 Audi R8: As a supercar, it barely scrapes by

January 05, 2009

Audi R8 Scrape.jpg I've driven everything from an Acura NSX to a Ford GT to a Porsche 911 up my in-laws' driveway with nary a scuff mark. But that damn proboscis on the Audi R8 just can't handle the approach angle. I even approached the approach angle at an angle, knowing how far the car's maw sticks out ahead of the front tires. Didn't matter, the snout still dragged on the pavement.

At least it looks good...once you get it on flat and level pavement.
