Editor's Overview

There's nothing "barely tamed" about the 2018 Audi R8; this baby is a pussycat. At least, when cruising around town. But unleash the 610-horsepower V10 engine on a racetrack and you'll hit 205 mph. It offers all the incredible performance of a modern exotic supercar, but with the civility and daily livability of an Audi luxury sedan.

The speed is very important to me because ever.

My vehicle is very nice I would highly rate it to others that are looking for a nice car and can afford it.

Make sure you put the right oil.

I love my vehicle because it's beautiful. The makers did an amazing job. I love the speed on my vehicle.

Its fast it has a loud engine.

There's nothing wrong with others one thing that bothers me that sometime it will make funny noises.
