Car: Audi R8 Coupe

Year: 2018

What makes it special: The Audi R8 is a spectacular performance car with a phenomenal pedigree. It's available in both Coupe or Spyder Convertible. With a comfortable ride and gorgeous interior, it was fully redesigned for 2017, but new for this year it has a black optic appearance package with 20-inch wheels, dark interior and exterior accents, as well as Audi sports badge affixed to its front fascia.

What made it famous: The R8 features a 540 hp 5.22 liter V10 engine mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission and all-wheel drive. The R8 Plus is a 5.2 liter V10 boasting 610 hp. It can go 0-60mph in 2.9 sec, with a top-speed of 205mph. The R8 also features carbon-ceramic brakes and laser-assisted LED headlights, a MM1 infotainment interface, navigation system, Apple CarPlay and Andriod smartphone intergration, and Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Why I would want one: It's extremely advance technologically, plus...I'd feel like James Bond driving one.

Fun fact: This $185,500 base priced car can be checked out at the Connecticut International Auto Show, running from November 17-19th, at the Connecticut Convention Center.
