a little harsh, no?

I like the Audi R8... though I have had more opportunity to ride in a shopping cart, than in an Audi R8

ooh ooh, I got some more:

* In an effort to reduce weight, the latest iteration of the SLK (R172) looks very minimalistic compared to its R171 brethren.

* The roadster, redefined.

* Open-air motoring at its best...

* Look ma, no brakes!

* Parallel parking.
