R8 | Cars
The Audi R8, the mid engined V8 supercar that is made from a blend of carbon fibre, magnesium and aluminium, the car that Audi produced to compete with the likes of the Porsche 911 Carrera 2S.
Now, It's not the speed that impresses you most of all, it's the way this thing feels through the corners and that V8 tower of power is just mesmorizing. There’s so much to admire, the aesthetically satisfying design, with the futuristic looking side scoops and the sleek lines and low ride height. This German piece of engineering, just makes me feel that this is how a modern day supercar should look like, it's here to do business.
Anyway, time for a point of contention… that the V8 sounds better than the V10. The flagship’s 5.2-litre has this wonderful fluted, mellifluous, woofly tone which is undeniably lovely, but the 4.2-litre V8 sounds a bit more dangerous. It barks and has an angry, raucous edge that really gets under your skin and makes bits of you tingle.
Lets not forget, this is the car of choice of Tony Stark and if Iron man chooses to blast around in one, then it has to be 'top of the bill'. As far as I'm concerned, this car is almost without fault, its absolutely stunning and the experience will be something that you will want to do again and again.
"Driving most supercars, is like man-handling a cow up a back staircase...this is like smearing honey into Kiera Knightly..." Jeremy Clarkson

What a great day at Bicester. A Christmas present from my daughter. I had the 4 car pack, 6 miles in each. The event was so well organised. From registering on arrival, thru to the very friendly instructors in each of the cars. Even the bacon rolls were spot on. Worth every penny for the experience. Thank YouJeff
