TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Audi R8 is a supercar fit for daily driving, thanks to its German precision and Italian powerplant. With exceptional performance, style, comfort, features, and most of all value, the 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray is a remarkable sports car. Did you think the previous GT-R offered unearthly performance? The 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo takes it up a notch, with some added finesse.
