Audi's mid-engine corporate cousin to the Lamborghini Gallardo, the R8 keeps the Ingolstadt company's flag planted in the exotic car world after receiving a facelift in 2013. The signature body sideblades and quattro all-wheel-drive return as do the V8 and V10 engines, in either coupe or spyder configurations.

Audi's 4.2-liter V8 generates 430 horsepower; its 10-cylinder engine cranks out 525 ponies from 5.2 liters. The hardtop-only V10 "plus" boosts output to 550 horsepower. A true six-speed manual transmission is available across the board, as is a seven-speed Audi S Tronic dual-clutch unit.

Major changes included: Constructed mainly of lightweight aluminum, the R8 is a sports car with a longitudinally mounted mid-engine, and uses Audi's 'trademark' quattro permanent four-wheel drive system to distribute power and torque to all four wheels. The R8 is exclusively designed, developed, and manufactured by Audi high performance private subsidiary company and is based heavily on the Lamborghini Gallardo.
