Below we have the Audi R8 sales figures and reporting data for the United States and Canada. The Audi R8 is a mid-engine, 2-seater sports car that was introduced in 2006. We have been huge fans of the R8 from the beginning. Finally somebody made a sports car that was practical, fun, fast and didn’t have a Porsche nameplate. Despite the amazing car Audi delivered the R8 never sold in Porsche 911 quantities and was relegated to being an also ran in terms of units sold. If you want a fun-to-drive car that you can just enjoy on the open road and drive to the office, you’re looking at the right vehicle and screw what the sales numbers say. Powerful, naturally aspirated engine, perfect handling, all-wheel drive, strong brakes, tech features galore and a design that is still the best, you cannot go wrong.
