Following on from my Rover P6 classic car review which was released last week, I thought I’d continue my impromptu V8 #CarFilms series with the Audi R8.
Winter roads, 430bhp and 4.2 litres of Germany’s finest engineering, you could say I did my best to turn Audi’s debut mid-engined supercar into a rally car.
Famous (?) for being the car which Iron Man launched in the movie, and for being a Decepticon in the Transformer film franchise, the R8 somehow managed to capture the imagination of petrolheads despite lacking the exotica of the Lamborghini Gallardo, which shared a chassis with the R8.
Find out why it wasn’t such a bad thing that the Audi couldn’t compete on equal terms with its fellow supercars back in 2007.
Enjoy that V8 soundtrack…
