The R8 coupe is a beautifully designed mid-engined sports car that has got the performance, looks and quality to rival exotic machines from established sports and supercar firms like Ferrari and Porsche. Offered with either 4.2-litre V8 or 5.2-litre V10 petrol engines with quattro four-wheel drive, the R8 is hugely fast, but crucially, it's also an approachable, easy car to drive. It's not very practical, but if you can afford the R8 you can afford something to do the shopping in - or have it delivered!

The R8 Spyder takes all the performance of its closed coupe relative and adds some glamour thanks to its folding canvas roof. It's no less practical than the coupe, and dropping the top allows you to better enjoy the sound of either the V8 or V10 engine. Gorgeous inside and out, the R8 Spyder looks a million dollars but costs significantly less.
