Audi and its Quattro all-wheel drive is a pairing that makes serious artistry of the road. It’s like the duo of Daft Punk (if you’re an electronic music fan), The Black Keys (for the rock fans), or Hall and Oates or Simon and Garfunkel (for the fans of the older stuff). To have one without the other seems crazy.
Well, the madmen have done it. This is the new Audi R8
RWS, a rear-wheel-drive model of the brand’s halo supercar. The German automaker says that this is how to properly experience the mid-engined, V10 powered marvel in its purest form (and customers have been begging for it), so we set out to Madrid to see if they got it right.
