In a way, it’s ridiculous for me to try and write about how good this car is. You won’t fully understand it until your butt is in the seat, your hands are on the wheel, and your foot is on the floor. The Audi R8 is like a holiday weekend that never ends.

If you happen to see a guy blast by you in an Audi R8 V10 Spyder with the top down driving like Senna with a first place finish at stake, know this: It’s the car, not him. He didn’t do a thing except not have a heart attack and die.

Audi has crafted a masterpiece here. It has bested its own best-in-a-generation R8 by lopping off the top, and creating a better, more involving car in the process. Better still, it has built a supercar that is every bit the match, dollar for dollar, with its far more exotic Lamborghini doppelganger.

Despite all the technology and amazing body lines, the best thing about the Audi R8 Spyder is driving it down the freeway at [redacted]mph, with the wind in your hair and a huge grin on your face. Driving a car of this class is an experience that should not be missed.

The R8’s true supercar credentials remain (that acceleration, precise steering, huge grip) with barely any of the usual soft-top compromises (handling imprecision, scuttle shake).

The Audi R8 does what you expect from a high-performance sports car. And it does so with daily livability, turn-key reliability, and perhaps in your style more than any other. You could drive it to the office in the rain, go parts shopping, then do a few laps at the track in one day.

The Audi R8 coupe costs a pretty penny, beginning at about $114,000, but it looks at least that pretty and unique. Indeed, there is a lot to set this car well apart from other cars, in both appearance and driving prowess.

The 2013 Audi R8 works on many levels. It’s quiet enough to drive every day, and when you need to turn up the wick, however, this R8 responds better than ever. The combination of the new transmission, adaptive suspension and always usable power add up to a sweetie of a sports car.

The 2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder’s competition is pretty fierce. It includes The Lamborghini LP560-4 Spyder, the Bentley Continental GTC, Ferrari California, the latest Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet. But the Audi takes the measure of them all.

The Audi R8 Spyder is the easiest–to-live with, most user-friendly supercar on the market. Not much about this car doesn’t shout out spectacular: styling, performance, handling, impression on others; convertible top well-integrated into the existing coupe

When Audi decided last year to offer a 525-hp, 5.2-liter V10 in the R8, the two-seater graduated to supercar status. Being able to drop the top is now icing on the performance car’s cake.

“Honest officer, it’s my 25th high school reunion in a couple of days,” I said to the man examining my driver’s license under the glare of red and blue flashing lights. If you’re going to drive down memory lane, do it in a 2011 Audi R8 Spyder.
