Maybe if BMW owned an exotic company they would have something in the same range.
Yeah, the R8 is basically a Lambo in Audi clothes. And it has that HORRIBLE fake auto tranny. I'd rather have the 6 speed ZF gearbox or the BMW DCT. That honestly doesn't stop it from being on my list of "dream cars" though. I don't usually care for supercars, my dream car list is made up of various M3's, an RS5, GTR and other "attainable" cars. But the R8 for me is pretty awesome. Still, love BMW more than Audi as a whole.

Well, the i8 is coming out soon. Not quite as powerful as the R8, but it is within supercar pricing and performance specs. Especially for a hybrid!
