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.

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 R8 remains a competitive player and is an absolute joy to drive. It always seems to have a few tricks up its sleeves. Its supercar proportions set it apart from competitors.

The R8 is just a wonderfully well-balanced car. It offers plenty of luxury and a surprisingly roomy cabin. Materials are high-quality, the design is modern and appealing, and all of the Audi technology and convenience options you’d expect are available.

If you’re looking for an exclusive version of the R8, the GT could be perfect. Increases in acceleration or the theoretical 199 mph top speed are good for bench racing, but there are better choices for track days when you consider the GT will cost $200K and we won’t even be offered the race package.

But the main difference between the GT and the regular Audi R8 5.2 is that the lighter car drives with more precision through fast corners. Ultimately, this is a refined sports car endowed with instant reactions as well as a forgiving demeanor at the limit.
