Although it is hard to find faults with the new Audi R8 V10, especially when at speed on the racetrack. As Mr. Clarkson points out, there are automobiles that better serve a purpose, like a Land Rover in a field or a Bugatti Veyron at a Concours, but according to one of the biggest car critics in the world, there is no car that is better suited than the new R8 for a lapping session.
