One of the best supercars around, the NA engine is superb

Verdict – The Audi R8 V10+ is one of those cars you instantly fall in love with. There is so much going for this car that just cannot be described in words. It looks stunning to say the least, the interiors are a perfect combination of ergonomics and tech-laden, the performance is out of this world and the driving dynamics make sure you would never want to leave the driver’s seat. The R8 V10+ is an awesome supercar that might not be practical for daily usage but it will definitely plaster a huge grin on your face.
