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.

The 2010 Audi R8 V10 boasts a 525bhp Audi tuned V10 derived from the 2007 - 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera topping at 196.1 as the Superleggera boasted a 532bhp Lambo V10 and topped at 196mph.

The 2011 - 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera boasts a 560bhp Lambo V10 topping at 203 so in reality the Superleggera will wax the R8.

The 2009 present Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Coupe boasts a 560bhp Lambo V10 and tops at 202.

The R8 V10 sits below the current LP560.
