9. Audi R8 V10 Coupe
Base Price: $162,900
Think of the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Coupe as the Audi that went to the gym and bulked up into a muscle-bound powerhouse. The all-wheel drive R8 is Audi’s supercar, and has been driven by the Iron Man himself, Tony Stark, in several Marvel movies since 2008’s original “Iron Man.”
The Audi R8 V10 Coupe is all-new for 2017. It checks all the exotic supercar boxes:
Futuristic styling? Check.
Lightweight aluminum construction? Check.
Mid-mounted V10 engine? Check.
Over 500 horsepower? Check.
The R8’s 5.2-liter V10 engine provides 540 horsepower, routed through the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive system. Zero to 60 takes 3.5 seconds. Top track speed is 199 mph. If that’s not enough, there’s the Plus model with 610 horsepower. Decisions, decisions…
The interior of the R8 V10 Coupe has plenty of room for two and no more. The sport seats have 18-way power and are covered in fine Nappa leather. The Bang & Olufsen 12-speaker audio system has 550 watts of power to blast your tunes at any speed. Full LED headamps light your way with bright, intense white light. A full complement of luxury and performance amenities are included as standard.
The 2017 Audi R8 V10 Coupe is the ultimate Audi. It is more powerful, faster, and handles better than anything else with the four-ring grille. It is raw yet civilized and practical, a supercar you could use every day.
