The Car Connection's Take

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Audi R8 looks and sounds like an exotic, but it has the day-to-day livability and comfort of a grand-touring coupe. The 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG stuns with visually catchy gullwings and a thundering V-8, but the rear styling, slow gearbox, and tight-fitting cockpit need more attention.
