The Audi R8 won the 2009 “Classic of the Future” award in the Sports Car category from Motor Klassik readers. Sounds about right, considering the attention and praise the R8 has received since it was launched in 2008, not to mention the Godfather-inspired commercial aired during the 2008 Superbowl.
Motor Klassik readers chose from 168 different models in seven categories, and the R8 got top spot. With the R8 V10 coming soon, the car will certainly be considered a classic in a decade or two.
In a related note, the Audi A6 snagged third place in the “full-size car of the modern age” award. Congrats Audi!
