    Audi R8 Australia

    First spied in Will Smith's 2004 sci-fi movie iRobot, Audi's futuristic two-seat, mid-engined sports car launched in 2006.

    Designed to be a rolling example of Audi's best technology, the AWD rocketship was built in V10 and V8 form, as well as hardtop and open top styles. It spawned numerous special editions during its first generation, including the prototype electric e-Tron and 2010's 412kW R8 GT.

    The second generation R8 launched in 2016, and the V8 was dropped in favour of a new V10 capable of 449kW in R8 V10 Plus spec. The R8 also shares much of its underpinnings with Lamborghini's Huracan sports car. Price range from $294,877 for the R8 V10 RWD up to $416,500 for the R8 V10 Spyder Performance Quattro.
