Audi was best known for making stylish saloons and estates before it suddenly produced this sensational world-beater. The R8 came about through Audi’s association with Italian specialist car maker Lamborghini. If you hire the Audi R8 you may notice the similarities with the jet-set supercar, the Lamborghini Gallardo. In fact, the two sports cars share many mechanical underpinnings.
The R8 is a mid-engine, two-seater with outrageous performance, and it comes with the same ten-cylinder 5.2-litre V10 as the Lamborghini. This means the Audi has sizzling performance potential: a 0-60mph sprint will take just over four seconds and the car can accelerate to almost 200mph.
The R8 comes with a smooth and fast seven-speed automatic gearbox and boasts the surefootedness of permanent four-wheel drive. The cabin is a premium environment, with high quality leather upholstery, a sat-nav and Bluetooth system, and a high quality Bang & Olufsen hi-fi.
The dramatic style and breath-taking performance of the Audi R8 have meant that this beauty is a pleasure to drive. While it might share many of the same factors with the Lamborghini, this car is surely in a class of its own.
