    Perfect. — This car is fast...really fast, and deceptively so. The exterior styling is more seductive then angular (unlike many of the Italian manufacturers). The interior is comfortable, manageable and simple. The interior is obviously designed by Germans who value sheer driving more than holding shareholder meetings and dinner parties inside. In other words there is nothing inside that doesn't need to be there. The stance of this car is visually beautiful. It's wide hind quarters and confidently displayed engine subtly insinuates sophistication yet when the engine is fired up, a noticeable growl lets the onlooker that this is no ordinary Audi.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Beautiful styling, both inside and out.  Great accelleration, unbelievable handling, and USEABLE power make this car essentially flawless.

    Cons: I guess fuel economy, but honestly this is a stupid category to judge super cars by.  It's not a Prius, but it's respectable considering the size of the engine.  If Audi would have offered this car in the V12 diesel I would have grabbed one, but the V10 is basically perfect.  Plus, the fuel tank is huge, especially for a car this small...I think it's 23 gallons or so.
