Driven: The Most Expensive Audi Ever!

Follow Marty



We’ve driven, and loved all over, Audi’s new R8. So sleek and capable it is, we’re willing to overlook the fact that it’s been priced comparable to a two-bedroom house in Detroit. Audi says the R8 will run you $109,000—$118,000 if you want it with an automatic. But you do get its rippling 420-hp V-8, stunning looks and speed, and dandy Sirius satellite radio for your efforts. And so what if you have to seek subprime lending to help pay for it all? Chapter 11 makes up for past sins, right?

  1. The new Audi sports car is an engineering tour de force; however, rather thangoing for the tough, mechanical look, Audi should have explored the idea of lissome beauty, ala the Ferrari 308 GTS roadster.

    I can't agree, trying to beat Ferrari at the "lissome beauty" game would be a bit of a no hoper. I suspect that the combination of dramatic looks with Teutonic efficiency will do the job without opening them to criticism for trying and failing to compete with the masters of the art on the aesthetic stakes.
