For what it is, it's cheap, 4.2 V8 engine from Audi is a masterpiece in itself. There's only one flaw with the R8 and that is the doorline from a sideprofile. That's it. It is, the most beautiful car evermade (in my opinion of course). The only thing that would be better it, is if there was an RWD version.
To a degree, I agree with you, but I don't care if they released that on market interest, that's what good companies do, I personally am passionate about that particular car, and that's what counts, right?
