Audi R8 Spyder: A supercar that gives you an insight into what life must be like for Cheryl Cole

Audi R8 Spyder

Great driving report here with the Audi R8 Spyder. Make sure to read!

If you are looking for a car in which to be pleasantly ignored — something to run around in, in a soothing fug of anonymity — then may I not recommend the Audi R8 Spyder. It gets looks. Lots of them. Constantly. Indeed, it is hard to know how this new convertible version of Audi’s admired supercar could more successfully draw attention to itself without rearing up on its hind wheels and doing Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It), complete with the dance moves.

I should add, though, that the kind of attention the R8 Spyder attracted when I drove it was almost entirely benign and, indeed, borderline worshipful, rather than, as I had nervously anticipated, involving resentful hand gestures. Maybe I just didn’t drive up the right streets. Or maybe I drove up them too fast.
