I've been reading up on the Audi R8...

exotic materials...aluminum and magnesium?
inclusion of AWD with rear bias
mid-engine
comfortable interior/mileage in the 20's?
V-8/soon to be V-10 option

sounds like what a NSX should be. what do y'all think of the R8?

The R8 is a great car and I hope Honda/Acura are going to offer a mid engine above the Acura ASCC with V10 engine.

Beside that issue Honda/Acura need to have more sports car in their line up. Its really a shame that there is no CRX, Prelude or Integra any more.

You can expect something like that from the world´s biggest engine manufacturer. To position yourself in the market you need to have image. And image you wont get with mass cars production, but with for example prestigues sports cars where the profit doesnt matter

Very true. I think alot of Honda fans love the R8. Its what we all want the NSX to be.


Audi has a winner.

I think the R8 looks like a riced out TT and I'd prefer RWD but other than that its what the doctor ordered. It amazes me that Audi knew well enough to make the R8 mid-engined but Honda (who has a lot more racing heritage) didn't.

I'd buy a 911 any day before the R8. The R8 is too heavy, AWD (not sporting) and not particularly attractive or unique looking.

I actually think the R8's front end is original & aggressive and like it a fair bit. But everything beyond the front has me scratching my head--just seems too busy and haphazard. The overall car looks clunky & ungainly; there's no flow between the front & the rest of the car. I think Audi designs are normally superior to those of BMW & MB in general but I think they missed it w/ the R8.
