Attention, Porsche 911 Turbo, Lamborghini LP560-4, Mercedes-Benz SL63AMG; Here comes your nemesis.
The Audi R8 5.2 may not be quite a sharp as the Gallardo, but it is wilder.
In this article the author, Georg Kacher drives from Marbella, Spain for the privately owned Ascari racetrack in a Suzuka grey R8, with a three-pedal
transmission and magnetic dampers (standard in the U.S.)
After lunch, through the rolling hills of the Costa del Sol in a brilliant red coupe that featured the R tronic automated manual transmission.
Georg's pick was the manual version.
A must-read article and a must-drive supercar.
