TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Audi R8 brings the expected Germanic, technical appeal to the supercar arena-but it's the imported Italian V-10 that reveals some true lust in its heart. Brilliant from the drawing table down to the tarmac, the 2010 Jaguar XK and XKR have ripened into full sports car adulthood. The 2010 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class roadsters challenge luxury grand tourers and high-energy exotics alike with stupendously powerful engines and enviable ride quality.
