Guest drives the Audi R8

3 laps

The stunning R8 is Audi's first attempt at a supercar and they got it right first time. The look of the car is completely different to anything else on the market yet it couldn't be anything else but an Audi. Each R8 is handmade in Germany by specialist teams making each car to a high standard

About the Audi R8 Thrill

Audi have hit the spot with their first attempt at a supercar. Not only in the handling and performance department but also with the styling, an area which so many manufacturers fail to get right when entering the supercar market.

Out on track the car has the traction you'd expect from Audi with performance that will blow your mind. The 4.2L V8 engines power is delivered through the tyres so effectively, giving you confidence to push the car harder around the circuit at Croft.

Open the door and drop into the driving seat, the car seems to mould around you, hit the starter button and the V8 bangs into life.

Out on track the car gives incredible levels of grip, even at speed. The aluminium chassis gives great feedback to the driver and urges you to push on more and more. With the V8 screaming away just behind your ear, the nose of the car going exactly where you point it, you won't be able to stop yourself smiling.
