The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
A marriage of the best of German handling and Italian power, the 2012 Audi R8 is a fantastic all-around supercar. The 2012 Maserati GranTurismo carves out a grand-touring niche for itself with Italian cachet, an earthy Ferrari rumble, and a serene blend of ride and handling.
