2017 Audi R8 In Pictures

The Audi R8 still surprises me. Coming from a car company that is synonymous with conservative design, fabulous interiors and technical prowess, it’s hard to believe they would put out such an outrageous and groundbreaking supercar, even 8 years since it arrived on our shores. Nonetheless, we had the good fortune to travel to Portugal with Audi to experience the new, second-generation R8, which is over a year away from arriving in Canada, but still a dramatic re-entry into the supercar segment for Audi.
