TCC’s Bottom Line
A marriage of the best of German handling and Italian power, the 2012 Audi R8 is a fantastic all-around supercar. The 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia is everything an Italian supercar should be: fierce, balanced, stylish, and, at times, temperamental. It might not be the youngest supercar on the block, but the 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo still hits all the right notes for a high-performance car with an exotic look.
