2009 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Audi R8 V10

Look out Ferrari, Lambo and the rest – the German aristocrats at Audi have well and truly gatecrashed the rarefied world of the supercar with this knock-your-eyes-out stunner.

The new R8 V10 is a 10-cylinder, 196mph aluminium-bodied rocket ship that can hit 62mph in an astonishing 3.9 seconds, stays glued to the floor thanks to permanent four-wheel drive, enjoys traditional Audi build quality and looks a million dollars to boot.

Actually it’s not quite a million – you can get hold of the manual version for a touch under £100k, with the automatic selling for an extra £5k.

MM verdict: A newcomer to send shockwaves through the established elite.
