2010 audi R8 Roadster design review
convertible. In this case you have now created the 2010 Audi R8 Convertible and you have just made a wild car into a cruiser.
Really, I have nothing against convertibles except that once you cut the roof off of a supercar, you make a glorified roadster. Take for instance the Dodge Viper. It was once one of the only cars with a targa top. This made it unique and very desirable. Then in 2001 they decided to ditch the targa for a convertible, thus making it a roadster. Sure, it is still a great car, but wind in your hair at 200mph is not really on most people’s minds. When Audi decided to cut the roof off of the R8, they should have only cut a portion of it off, just like Lamborghini and TVR did.
Overall Grade: A-
