When you prod a finger on the start button on the steering wheel, it awakes with a quick blip to 2500rpm, producing a sound that will have heads turning back. A seven-speed, dual clutch automated manual is the only transmission available with the new R8. This car allows you to speed from 0-60mph in a matter of 3.2 seconds.
