Audi R8 concept


Audi calls it "the slowest car we have ever built".

Well! I don't call a car with a max. speed of 187mph and goes from 0 to 62mph in 4.6 seconds, slow.



Powered by a V8 4.2 FSI engine, the Audi R8 is a mid-engined sports car which was officially launched at the Paris Auto Show on 30 September 2006.

Jeremy Clarkson thinks that it is even better than the Porsche 911 Carrera S. Read his article here.

Recommended prices for the manual version is £78,196 while it is £83,395 for the R Tronic version.



Why am I writing about the R8?

Well, take a look at their "Godfather" Super Bowl commercial.



Audi recently showed off their new R8 concept at the 2008 North American International Auto Show. The new car features the first 12-cylinder diesel engine in a high-performance road sports car - the V12 TDI engine. It has a displacement of six litres which generates 500PS and 1,000 Nm of torque.
