It was a lovely spring day in Malibu, California, made absolutely perfect by the fact that we had a total of six brand-new 2014 Audi R8's at our disposal. There was an Ice Silver V8 coupe with a 6-speed manual transmission, a Samoa Orange V8 Spyder with Audi's newest 7-speed S tronic transmission, a V10 powered Spyder in Estoril Blue, a V10 Coupe in Sepang Blue, a V10 Plus in the new exclusive Matte Sepang Blue, and lastly another V10 Plus in Brilliant Red.
We brought out every single bit of photo and video gear we could possibly get into (and on) an R8, and off we went along PCH and into the canyon hills of Malibu. After we had our fill of driving (more like, when they needed us to hand the keys back over), we got the opportunity to speak with the Product Manager of the R8 line for Audi USA, Mark Fruechtnicht, who provided a rundown of the R8 line-up, and what's new for the 2014 model year.
