The Audi R8 is an awesome mid-engined 2-seater sports supercar, exclusively designed, developed and manufactured by Audi’s Italian subsidiary, quattro GMbH. Based on the same platform as the Lamborghini Gallardo, when you hire an Audi R8, you will experience a handsome, dynamic and refined supercar that really is suitable for everyday use.
The Audi R8 Coupe is offered with either a 4.2-litre V8 or 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine, with quattro four-wheel drive and manual or automatic gearboxes. The R8 is hugely fast, but also approachable, delivering an outstanding performance and a sensational ride that is so refined that you feel like you are simply gliding. The recent Audi R8 GT is based on the V10 but with a revised engine and lighter body weight that makes this an extremely fast car, flying from 0-62mph in 3.6secs and with a top speed of 199 mph.
If this is not luxury enough, consider renting the R8 Spyder, blending the performance of the coupé or the GT with the glamour of an electrically powered soft top, allowing you to listen to the resonant sounds of the V8 or V10 engine. As with every Audi, the cabin is finely trimmed, the driving position suits most passengers and the seats are comfortable, making this a good rental choice for long-distance travel.
