The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Audi R8 looks and sounds like an exotic, but is more livable and drivable than its raging-bull cousin. The 2009 Ford Mustang is a sport coupe that won’t appeal to everyone, but some will appreciate its retro style and power-over-poise attitude.
