The new R8 is more polished than its predecessor - lighter, faster and better-balanced with a blistering 5.2 litre V10 Plus engine that does 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds, quattro 4WD, stability controls, big brakes and Pirelli tyres on 19 inch rims.
Inside, Audi's new 12.3 inch digital driver's display has a full-screen sat nav, reversing camera, speedo and track toys like a lap timer and G-Force dial. There's also plenty of storage space under the bonnet and behind the seats for those that don't like to travel light.
Audi UK say they have sold 150 of these cars in just two weeks, banking them over £18 million, and it's not real surprise. The R8 has the same performance as a Lamborghini Huracan, but it's £50K cheaper. The standard 540hp R8 starts at £119,500 and the V10 Plus (610hp) is £134,500.
The Sun has already given it's verdict: "A real turn-on. The cheapest way to join the 200 MPH club."
