Abraham Lincoln once surmised that if you gave him six hours to chop down a tree, he would spend the first four hours “sharpening the axe”.

And the axe? A brand new, 2016 Audi R8 V10 Spyder. You’ve no doubt read our first drive abroad, but here’s an actual right-hand-drive car, on actual British soil, with actual British weather.
And with actual British weather fully engaged – grey, wet, properly miserable – it’s time to engage that cliché of the ‘everyday supercar’.
