I have a neighbor with the R8 and it is a beauty. The price tag is comensurately high.
Having the engine positioned in the middle of the vehicle eats space.
For the price, I'm pleased with my M3 for its versatility & practicality & price.
R8 is in the top 5 as are the Porsche 911 turbo, Masarati 599 & others
Lexus LFA at $375K is not justifiable.
