    Edmunds blog: Audi R8 V10

    One of the best features at Edmunds is their blog where they drive cars over a longer period than just a couple of hours at a presslaunch.

    They have driven the Audi R8 V10, read all about it here, and see some beautiful pics:

     

    The trip is long over with now and the R8 V10 is now back in the hands of Audi. Other than a few pieces of rabbit carcass jammed into the undercarriage and a couple Heath bar wrappers that went MIA, the R8 was returned largely unscathed.

    Fuel mileage probably doesn't matter to those who can afford a $150,000 car, but the big V10 averaged 15.7 miles per gallon over the course of the trip. The longest run on a single tank was a measly 272 miles, so clearly this R8 is made for primping in gas stations above all else. 

    That's fine though, because as Dan mentioned earlier, the R8 is the everyman's exotic. People don't assume you're an arrogant a-hole when you're standing next to it, they just think you like cool cars.
     
    And like it we did. The R8 doesn't grow tiring as you rack up the miles like some exotics. Instead, it feels more and more like a normal car. Comfortable seats, good visibility, a compliant ride, it's almost too easy. Through three-and-a-half days of driving, we never attempted to kill one another although one of my ill-timed blips of the throttle did send Dan's Jarritos lime soda pouring onto his shirt, and pants, and seat. He was not amused.

    The V10 gives this car the soundtrack that matches the looks of the car. Sorry, but I was never happy with a fat, warbly V8 coming out the exhaust pipes. It was like looking at a runway model singing in tenor.
