    Audi R8 Driving Experiences

    Drive the amazing Audi R8 supercar

    Exilharating, sleek, powerful! Just some of the words to describe our Audi R8 driving experience

    Audi market the R8 as the "slowest car we've ever built." which at first glance is a strange claim to make. Just looking at the Audi R8 you can tell it's itching to get out onto the track and burn some serious rubber. So, slow? Surely some mistake?

    It's only when you realise the labour of love that each Audi R8 is does the meaning become clear. Each car is hand assembled by a team of engineers to make sure that each of the 5000 components fits together properly. Only 25 Audi R8s roll off the production line each day.

    Which is a shame as not only is the Audi R8 named after one of the most successful Le Mans winning race cars of all time but it also shares a heritage with the Lamborghini Gallardo. Oh, and most importantly the R8 is blisteringly fast and handles like a dream. The V8 engine will have you screaming around the track (literally and metaphorically) and the four wheel drive will have you staying firmly on the road rather than sliding into those bothersome sidings.

    When you're driving an Audi R8 you'll appreciate that this is one of the 21st Century's first true supercars. Combining sheer, unadulterated power with high technology trimmings (even an optional Bang & Olufsen stereo!) you'll find that the Audi R8 is a driver's car that offers comfort while it thrills.

    Slow, it most certainly is not.

    Facts about the Audi R8

  • The Audi R8 shares 15% of its construction with the Lamborghini Gallardo.
  • When each Audi R8 is finishing construction, 95 lasers check 220 measurements on the car to within 1/10th of a mm. It's a well known fact that using lasers on *anything* makes it more exciting.
  • The Audi R8 uses magneto rheological dampers in its suspension. We don't really know what they are, what they do or how they work and we're pretty sure they featured in at least one Back to the Future movie. All we know is that they make for a heck of a smooth ride.
  • Playboy magazine, the famous automotive authority, called the Audi R8 the Car of the Year 2008. The R8 was also named the 2008 World Performance Car of the Year by the slightly more prestigious World Car of the Year awards.
