TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Audi R8 is a supercar fit for daily driving, thanks to its German precision and Italian powerplant. The Maserati GranTurismo looks equally good with a fixed or convertible roof and offers a Ferrari-built V-8 for those who want similar power in a different Italian wrapper. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT is the last of the current line, but it still promises to be a top-level super sports car.
