The 2015 Audi R8 has all the looks you could ever ask for--especially if you're not quite ready to commit to an Italian supercar.
Updates for this year include a few new exterior colors, the addition of an optional quilted headliner, as well as red-painted calipers.
Inside, the R8 luxuriates in no-nonsense design. Last year Audi fine-tuned it with new chrome and gloss accents. The easily-located controls and low cowl blend with each other seamlessly. Understated, fine materials lend a refined finish. Climbing the performance ladder yields add-ons with a higher-performance intent, things like knurled shift knobs, bold gauges, and slim door handles.
The R8 dresses up in Coupe and Spyder convertible drag. Understated in a powerful way, the coupe has a mid-engine silhouette that gives it supercar flair. The front end curves and swells into sculpted, wide fenders. The car's trademark "side blades" tie in with the sloping roofline to converge in harmony at the rear end.
The Spyder-ectomy doesn't ding the profile look. The soft top fits in when up. It transforms the car into a more laid-back shape.
