2018 Audi R8 Spyder V10 PlusEnlarge Photo
Sports cars like the Porsche 911 and Mercedes-AMG GT revel in their long hoods. Not so the Audi R8, which pushes drivers forward, practically over their front axle. It's that distinctive design cue, which Audi has kept fresh for over a decade, that sets the R8 apart.
It's spartan inside, but so detail-oriented that it hardly feels bare-bones. The R8 incorporates all audio and navigation displays in its instrument cluster, which frees up the dashboard for an almost retro feel.
