The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.2
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. Every Corvette delivers power and performance, but the Grand Sport emerges as the track star with a reasonable price and a livable ride.
