Audi R8 V10 Plus review

The old Audi R8 has long been an evo favourite, providing sports coupe buyers with a real alternative to the Porsche 911.

The latest car might not be as striking as its predecessor, but there’s a lot to like about the way it drives. Head to our review to see what Road Test Editor, Dan Prosser, thinks.

We’ve all been there – the heady anticipation of driving a new car, only for the joy to evaporate when you get behind the wheel.

Colin Goodwin’s motoring career has been long and varied, but you may be surprised by the car he found most disappointing.

The original Spyder was a hugely appealing take on the regular open-top sports car, and it seems the new model is equally improved over the already-impressive Boxster GTS.
