Audi has built its name by developing safe and sporty vehicles. When sitting inside a modern Audi automobile you will automatically feel luxury, safety and performance. Please have a look at a short list of the best cars Audi have ever built.
1. Audi R8
The R8 Le Mans Prototype bagged accolades everywhere it went as soon as it was released. It sent the car industry into a spin, and a road-going version was soon in the pipeline. In 2007, Audi made its fans’ wishes come true with the launch of the R8 production car. Unsurprisingly, the R8 was so hugely popular that people purchased it simply for its amazingly sleek profile.
However, the R8 has much more to offer than beauty alone; it’s a genuine supercar that is a dream to drive, purring gently as it hums along the road. No wonder that it is often referred to as the best-ever daily driver supercar. However, this quality motor comes at a price: a second-hand R8 is well over £50,000, and you can double that for a brand new model.
In 2020, the R8 was tweaked with an extra 30 horsepower and several new details on the exterior finish.
2. Audi A1 quattro
The Audi A1 quattro was launched in 2013 and is ultra-rare. It’s the fiercest Audi A1 ever created, and, astonishingly, only 333 were ever sold. A couple of these 2013 super rare hatches were recently spotted for sale with only 2,000 miles on the clock. Sporting’ Glacier White’ paintwork, 18-inch Turbine Alloys in a matching white, along with an impressive rear spoiler, solid exhaust tailpipes and a suitably sporty body kit.
Each Audi A1 quattro car was built as a left-hand drive and featured LED daytime running lights, electric sports bucket seats, Xenon headlights, a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, automatic air conditioning, a sports exhaust and unique quattro badging. Compared to the standard Audi A1, over 600 alterations were made to create the A1 quattro.
3. Audi TT3.2 Coupe
Yes, Audi finally did it; they succeeded in making the second-generation TT as striking to look at as the predecessor. The TT3’s steering is pretty impressive, but its variable-assist and the speed-sensitive system remains a few steps ahead with the boost. The TT’s brakes provide a good balance to the ultra-sensitive steering and are capable of stopping the TT from 70 mph in just 159 feet. The TT moniker is generally associated with the dangerous Isle of Man TT races but is equally suitable for Audi’s car, which offers intrepid drivers a new challenge.
4. Audi Q5
The Audi Q5 is a luxury SUV and one of Audi’s best-selling automobiles. It’s marketed as a family car with excellent fuel efficiency and reliability. It is supplied with a mighty 2L I-4 turbocharged engine capable of producing 273 pound-feet of torque, with a 350-hp twin-turbo V6 as an optional extra. A 2018 redesign made some sound improvements to an already excellent car with an innovative platform.
The Audi Q5 comes equipped with a good array of technological features with a spacious cabin directly comparable to the Mercedes GLC. The premium luxury model features advanced transmission and greater power. It runs on a 3L V6 turbocharged engine paired with an eight-speed transmission capable of 249hp.
5. Audi E-Tron
If you’re looking for the best electric SUV available and have the cash to spare, approximately £55 K is the budget. It’s true that the E-Tron is significantly cheaper than the Tesla Model X. Still, it provides a magnificent performance and features a more stylish and technologically advanced interior with a 10.1-inch touch screen display along with a gauge cluster in the form of a customisable 12.3-inch display. It’s swift and easy to handle on the road and generally has the vibe of a sports car while featuring the practicality of a midsize SUV.
