TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Audi R8 is a supercar fit for daily driving, thanks to its German precision and Italian powerplant. The 2015 Ferrari 458 lineup, in all of its supercar splendor and race-derived mechanical majesty, is the modern iteration of those classic Ferrari models—plus a lot more. 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.
