BY GERRY MILES

Since its introduction in 2008, the Audi R8 has whetted the appetite and aspiration of drivers and afficianados alike. It is that good, stylish and powerful.
The new 2014 Audi R8 is said to be more dynamic and powerful than ever with either its top up or down.
Among the improvements are an available new 7-speed S tronic transmission that improves the 0-60 mph time by 0.3 seconds on the R8 V10 Plus. A new LED headlamp design gives the R8 an unmistakable presence.
At the top of the range is the new R8 V10 Plus Coupe with 550 horsepower and 398 lb.-ft. of torque, achieving a 0-to-60 mph time of 3.3 seconds. It has a top speed rated at 196 mph.
It’s faster stance is attributed to a 130 pound diet achieved with ceramic brakes, carbon fiber side blades, front splitter, rear diffuser, and spoiler; a smaller fuel tank; manual Alcantara® seats and reduced sound insulation in the engine bay.The interior receives beautiful diamond-stitch leather seats as well as an available flat-bottom multi-function steering wheel among other improvements. “The launch of the R8 represented the turning point of the Audi brand and placed luxury on notice,” said Scott Keogh, President Audi of America. “The 2014 R8 will continue to build upon that success for our halo sports car and for the Audi brand as a whole.”

Tony Stark, played by actor Robert Downey Jr., will once again be back in the Audi R8 as his car of choice. Iron Man 3 debuts in movie theatres across the country on May 3rd, 2013.
