2010 Audi R8 5.2 FSI and Spyder
The Audi R8 picks up a coveted performance mantle from the late, great Acura NSX: The everyday supercar. With its outlandish looks and stellar handling, the R8 is pure exotic. But with a livable interior and easy around-town nature, it's as easy to live with as an A4. However, with the standard V8 engine many less expensive cars easily best the R8's straight-line acceleration. To remedy this, Audi is stuffing its stellar 5.2-liter V10 engine behind the rear seats, giving it true supercar acceleration. With 517 hp, a 196-mph top speed and 0-60 in 3.9 seconds, there are few cars that can match it, even for the R8's $146,000 price. To top things off, a drool-worthy convertible will be available sometime next year.
