20 Stunning Photos Of The Audi R8

German manufacturers have been making excellent cars for decades. Automakers such as BMW and Mercedes have also veered into the sports car segment to get a piece of the pie. Since Audi did not want to be left behind and wanted to capitalize on this niche market, they entered the race with one of the most prominent sports cars on the market – the Audi R8. Some drivers would even rather opt for an R8 over a Ferrari F30 or a Lamborghini Gallardo.

Although the standard R8 looks fantastic, some owners have invested money to make their car look even better. Others have left their R8s as the standard model. We collected photos of some of the most stunning R8s.

When you combine colors to wrap, getting the right combination is crucial. The other factor that matters is using the right ratio of the two colors across the vehicle. On this R8, the combination of red and black is absolutely stunning. Nice touches on the rims and the seats.

There are only a few cars that look good in a camouflage wrap. The R8 is definitely one of them. The great touch that the owner of this one did is adding a touch of yellow patterns throughout the vehicle. That's helped to give the car a bit of a bright color but enough to keep it dark.

If you want a dark wrap but don't want to go for the matte black, then the next best option is grey. In my opinion, the matte grey looks better than the black. Although the owner didn't combine a lighter color with the matte grey, it still makes the car look good, especially the black rims.

Sometimes the standard design is good enough. Some R8 owners want to make their vehicles even better, but Audi's standard model is so beautiful that no adjustments are required, especially when it's in red. It doesn't hurt that it's a convertible and that the black interior matches the red paint.
