The new Audi R8 has been unveiled. One of the interesting points is that it shares the mid-engine Lamborghini Gallardo platform. This helps make the Audi an affordable supercar at roughly $100,000. It features a 414hp V8 engine and accelerates 0-60 in 4.6 seconds.
Implications - If you have the $100,000 to spare, you would be hard pressed to find a supercar with commensurate hardware at a similar price. Audi is a car manufacturer with a serious reputation for producing some of the world's most incredible vehicles, and the Audi R8 is no exception. Unfortunately, a car this incredible may have to remain a distant dream for those of us who don't have the kind of dough to afford one.
