Those seeking a vehicle that will turn heads and attract attention will definitely find what they're looking for in the 2008 Audi R8.
Forbes Autos thinks it looks something like the smaller Audi TT. The R8 is much longer and sits lower. Its most stunning feature is the side air intakes that are framed by so-called sideblades. They lend it an exotic appearance.
Despite a slight resemblance to the Lamborghini Gallardo, the R8 has a style all its own. Its V-8 is clearly visible and LED-lit at night. The Ferrari F430 comes to mind, according to Car and Driver says it's "as much aluminum sculpture as it is machine." Cars.com thinks it's a grabby design that "awakens the senses."
Forbes Autos dubs the cabin "minimalist and no-nonsense." Automobile says it's "somewhat overstyled."
