Iron Man‘s Tony Stark chose the R8 for his car for two reasons: engineering prowess and uncompromising performance. The iconic R8 broke molds and shattered expectations when it was first released, so many are wondering if the second iteration of R8 can produce a repeat performance. The good news is that Audi is still in the business of innovation and the 2017 R8 V10 not only improves the drivability, performance, and stylistic elements of the car, it also firmly cements the car in the modern era of supercars and their forward-thinking technologies. In short: yeah, it’s better. A lot better.
