SPOTTED: A Hugely Powerful Audi In Washington DC

Audi makes nice cars, but the German outfit is not really known for pumping out hundreds of horsepower. The 2012 R8 went against the grain with a 5.2-liter, V10 engine that propels the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, and up to 196 mph.

This dark blue model, with a base price of $149,000, was spotted by reader Twaro on M Street in Washington, D.C.
