Yes, you are reading right. The guys from Inside Line have compared the Audi R8 against the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Besides being an odd comparison, it’s a worthy read. No need to discuss any winner here, right?
Audi wins the dynamics element of our comparison handily, which should come as a surprise to no one.
And thanks to the careful airflow management expressed by its bodywork, the R8 feels unflappable at the ohmygod velocities it is capable of quickly attaining.
The R8 is, in a word, effortless.
With the 2008 Audi R8, the people at Audi have succeeded in combining performance and sophistication in equal measure. Despite its low-slung look of mobile astrophysics, the midengine R8 is a real car in the vein of Porsche’s 911, something that you wouldn’t think twice about hopping into and driving across the country.
