R8 4.2
By vinestain on


2011 Audi R8 4.2 quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


I shopped the R8 v the Porsche GT3 and while hardcore fans will think i made the wrong choice, the GT3 was jst too extreme to be enjoyed otherwise than the track.
The R8 is so enjoyable as a daily drive that trns heads.
Let's be honest, nobody gives a darn abot a porsche.
One drawback to the porsches classical styling and the sbtle changes over the last 50 years is that nobody cares.
The R8?
Snaps necks everywhere yo go.
This car is so mch more beatifl in person and it backs that up with amazing performance.
I considered the V10 bt becase of the car press' comments that the 4.2 is nderpowered...it is not.
Perfectly balanced car

Best Features

V8 Sondtrack. Styling....big srprise there. Gated manal. interior design

Worst Features

Some interior bits are plasticky. Nav screen is rather small and the interface is not as good as the 2010 S4. It's pricey bt frankly is a bargain considering it's competition

One can tell rather quickly this was written by a wanna-be based on grammar and spelling. While I don't own an R8 (yet), I can say with authority that it takes more than this guy to give real-world comments on R8 ownership.
