Model Highlights

The 2009 Audi returns for an encore performance following its overwhelming debut in 2008. The mid-engine supercar pairs its stellar 420-hp, FSI direct-injection 4.2L V8 to either a 6-speed manual or the "R-tronic" 6-speed sequential manual gearbox. The four-wheel independent suspension employs a magnetic ride adaptive damping system and Audi's legendary quattro all-wheel-drive system to maximize handling, and the R8's aluminum space frame keeps the chassis rigid and light. The end result is a car that excels when whipped through the corners.

Outside, the car has sleek and aggressive lines that pair nicely with the enormous front and side air intakes, as well as the handsome 19-inch alloy wheels. The R8's engine is on display through the rear glass (complemented by LED lighting). The end result is a look that is remarkably fresh and contemporary.

The interior is extremely well-equipped with all you would expect to find in a car with a sticker price sneaking into six figures. Features include heated leather-trimmed power seats, a driver information system, satellite radio, automatic climate control and an auto-dimming mirror. Bluetooth handsfree interface and Homelink universal garage door opener come standard as well. More than the equipment, however, is the design. Chrome trim tastefully adorns the cockpit, ergonomics are outstanding, and the material quality is superb.

Standard safety equipment abounds, with bi-xenon adaptive headlights, anti-lock brakes, side impact air bags, knee air bags, stability control with anti-slip regulation, and a tire pressure monitor.

A terrific Bang & Olufsen audio system is optional and includes active noise cancellation. Carbon fiber interior inlays and Audi Navigation are optional as well, with the latter including a 6.25-inch LCD display and twin SD card slots for MP3 playback.

The optional Premium Package combines auto-dimming exterior mirrors, front and rear parking assist, and Hill-Hold Assist. Extra interior leather trim, an upgraded headliner, and various color treatments for the exterior side "blade" round out the options list.


Model News

Audi's R8 supercar returns for 2009 following its much lauded introduction in 2008. The mid-engined V8 rocket sees few changes. Among them are a slight pricing increase for both manual and R-tronic models. A 6-CD changer is now standard, as are the Bluetooth handsfree interface and Homelink universal garage door opener. A high-gloss polished version of the standard 19-inch wheels is now available, as well as carbon fiber inlays for the interior and engine compartment trim. Navigation is now a separate $2000 option.


Value Writeup

Audi's 2009 R8 delivers a driving and ownership experience that only the most exclusive marques can beat, and it does so at a cost that is virtually half of most of its competitors. The striking styling, the mid-mounted engine, and the thrilling exhaust note come together to create a dynamic driving machine that is nothing short of exquisite.

The R8 can sprint to 60 mph in just over four seconds and can ably run through whatever curves you might find. The R8 marries German engineering with Italian verve (the R8 shares its platform with the Lamborghini Gallardo) to great effect, and looks like nothing else on the road.
