I am a huge fan of the Audi R8, always have been. For me it is an everyday supercar, not to be confused with ordinary. Out of many of the cars I get to test, the R8 has a duality that is perfect. I can pick up my son in it from school not long after giving myself the gift of a wildly fast blast along the famous Mulholland Drive here in Los Angeles. He can climb in the car with the heat still radiating off the brakes and the smile on my face.
The new Audi R8 LMX is a limited edition variant of this Audi flagship model and, as you would expect, it does everything just a bit better. I spoke with my friend Tom Kristensen, nine times Le Mans 24-Hour Winner for Audi, who has driven the R8 LMX at speed. He was enthusiastic about the levels of performance, achievable for each one of the 99 lucky owners that will spend time behind the wheel.
The 570-horsepower engine has naturally aspirated power on tap. It’s always a sweet experience, as the seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch gearbox allows the car to be ready for action at any time. Being mid-engined and compact with a well-developed chassis, the driver has an impression of total control in whatever situation. If you haven’t experienced it for yourself, our dealers have a nice inventory of Audi R8’s for sale.
For me, Audi obviously has the best four-wheel-drive system out there and it’s almost perfect in the front-rear bias. When driving it hard, you get the best of both worlds. The surefootedness of the four wheels pulls you through the corner, yet it retains the ability to rotate the rear to an angle that feels like a rear-wheel-drive car on the attack. 99 lucky people will buy the Audi R8 LMX, and each of the R8s has real lasers to magnify the high beams. For a better explanation of the technology, here are the Audi R8 LMX Specs and photos. It doesn’t get much better than that. If you would like to experience it for yourself, we have a nice selection of Audi R8 for sale. So stay with us for more Audi R8 reviews.
