A Jewel of a Car
By ayrton on


2009 Audi R8 quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)


Silver/Carbon Blade/Black interior, every option offered. The R8 is designed, engineered, and built beautifully. The engine is very smooth and revs like a 4-cylinder with the power of a V-8. Handling is great with mid-engine & low polar moment. The car is so confidence-inspiring that you want to go 10/10th's through every curve and turn. V-10 power might be welcomed but the car is very well- balanced and quick with the V-8. You do need to keep the revs up past 4000 to extract max power & fun. The seats are the best I've felt in an exotic, as comfortable as my A8L. Lots of comfort for two but not much space for things. Footwell space is also minimal, especially on the passenger side.

Best Features

Handling; Engine smoothness & responsiveness; Exhaust note; Exterior styling.

Worst Features

Seat memory; better sunvisors; better cupholders; double-clutch automated gearbox (like DSG or PDK); more luggage space in boot & cabin; more footwell room.
