2,000 km in Audi’s original masterpiece
I can pretty vividly remember my first experience with Audi’s R8. The car had just been introduced to the Canadian market, and I was an auto journalist at the time; during a week-long test drive, I’d never felt like such a rock star. Crowds would form around the car everywhere I drove, mesmerized by its then-unique LED headlights, exotic proportions, and Audi badge. With a high-revving, high-tech V8, a lit-up engine bay, and those looks, it felt like it’d driven straight out of the future.
