I think I saw one of these on show in San Diego while I was attending Comic Con. It looked a lot like this, but I could be wrong.

I have heard many great things about the R8. Personally, thoguht the styling is not my cup of tea.

R8 is pretty damn good, I'd wait for an R10 with an *-tronic (DSG) gearbox though... But i'm greedy, and love a v-10 bellowing..

But yes it'* absolute sex, nice every day car, hit the sport button to sharpen up the magnetic struts and terrorize a circuit.

R32? Barely faster than my car, much heavier, and looses the quick and darty feel. It does get AWD and a great exhaust setup, but it also looses fog lights for an extra $10k..

Eagle - Ford GT is no longer produced, couldn't meet bumper crash regs IIRC..

I've always had a soft spot for that mid-engine styling. Ever since my childhood modeling days.

However, I am going to need a much higher salary than I currently have before I could consider a $112,000 daily driver, lol.

Yeah, the audi R8 is an excellent ride, but the 2008 LS3 Corvette was/ is just as good (in differnt areas ofcourse). I got to drive both at the generac 500 at road america.Both were pacecars.



But would have rather driven this

I'm a HUUUGE corvette fan, easiily in my top 5 of all time, I adore the C6 to no end, and the C6-R is one of the best ALMS/Le Mans coupes of the 2000'*...

It'* not in the same class as the R8 though..
