Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro: Magnificient!

Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro
A must read driving report with the Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro, a “German tour de fierce”.

We have driven this thundering, all-aluminum, all-wheel-drive 518-horsepower Porsche-stalker with immense pleasure over the likewise immensely pleasurable seaside hills of southern Spain. Audi has been telling us that the R8 would become a glorious combination of German practicality and Italian exuberance, and this drive in the 2010 Audi R8 5.2 FSI Quattro shows us that the Bavarian company has delivered on this promise beyond our wildest expectations.

There’s a reason why the 2010 Audi R8 5.2 FSI V10’s signature color is white, the traditional color of Germany in motorsports. This is more than just a fast car; it’s a statement about Germany, about Audi. All that stuff about engineering with spiritual purpose? The hundreds and hundreds (and hundreds) of millions of dollars Audi has spent racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the last decade?

Here is where it has led us.
