Editors' Favorites Number One: 2008 Audi R8

March 12, 2010

If there's been an all-star car in our long-term fleet, this has been it. Maybe it's not a surprise to see us picking the $132,975 R8 exotic as our favorite. But it earned the most votes by a big margin. Not everybody voted for it; the car's clunky R tronic automated manual transmission and its non-defeatable moronic motorist magnet feature were turn-offs. But the majority was smitten with its throaty mid-mounted V8, communicative steering and livable ride quality. Basically, it was just super-cool to drive.

So, to recap: #5 2002 BMW M3. #4 Ford Flex. #3 Nissan GT-R. #2 2009 BMW M3 sedan. #1 2008 Audi R8. Meanwhile, we checked our initial post with the photo collage; plenty of you got four cars, but none named all five. Shout-out to bodyshopboy, stephen987, wrinklebump, bradyholt, waevox, auto4fun, nealibob, fuhteng, hunter312, captainvw, hijack and jaydubz for getting four.
