Audi R8 V10 Spyder driven in Italy

But that’s still not a deal-breaker. Because the rest of the car is a massive improvement. Let me put it this way. If the old R8 were an emcee at an event, it’d go through the proceedings smoothly, quickly and in the stipulated time. This new R8 is like having a stand-up comedian doubling as emcee. The proceedings will still be smooth, quick and in time, but they’ll be peppered with quite a bit of humour and a lot more hilariousness.

Oh, did I mention it’s got new headlights too?
