The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you want a supercar that looks the part and drives the part but aren't smitten with the usual suspects in this class, the NSX is your kind of machine. The 2020 Audi R8 is a mid-engine superhero in a suit and tie. Its performance is blinding, even if the R8’s bod is a little boring.
