The Audi's a worse option if you're a contract killer or serial introvert. The familiar silhouette of the 911, proportions unchanged since the 1760s, allows it to melt anonymously into the British roadscape. No chance in the R8, especially not in Hollywood-dental-treatment white. The R8 has been on sale for four years, but it still draws a crowd like few other cars. Your audience won't be disappointed by the noise, either: on full throttle, the R8 emits a NASCAR bark that the 911's chattery, rorty six simply can't match.
