TCC’s Bottom Line
As much a track star as it is a comfortable daily driver, the 2018 Audi R8 is one of the most balanced and flexible supercars ever made. The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette delivers unmatched performance for the dollar and the features to go with it; the looks are arresting but perhaps too aggressive for some tastes. The 2018 Nissan GT-R carries the Japanese supercar torch with en fuego twin-turbo power, all-wheel drive, and snicky dual-clutch gearchanges.
