Mercedes toA�Lamborghinisa��A�sportscars that canA�give the AudisA�some competition
IF youa��re not a big Audi fan and still want agreat supercar in the same price range as the R8 V10 Plus Coupe, these options should get you drooling
Aston Martin DB9
James Bond fans will lean towards theA�Aston Martin DB9.
With its iconic designA�and legendary performance pedigree, itA�has 470bhp from a six-litre naturally aspiratedA�V12 engine, which can accelerate
up to a top speed of 306 kmph. WhenA�it comes to performance, it may beA�slightly slower than the Audi, but therea��sA�no doubting its everyday practicality,A�which comes with all the bells and whistlesA�and a decent boot space. RsA�1.9 crore (ex-showroom, Chennai).
Youa��ll have to extend your budgetA�(compared to the R8) if you want to consider
the Huracan. But this mean littleA�supercar is the Audia��s cousin in manyA�ways. They share a lot of bits and bobsA�underneath, including the engine, butA�the Lambo is pure-bred aggression andA�brutal in performance. The legendaryA�Italian logo on the bonnet also makesA�all the difference. Rs 3 crore (ex-showroom,A�Chennai). Details: huracan.lamborghini.A�com

which can sprint to 100 kmph in 3.8 seconds.A�The AMG GT S is an attention grabber
regardless of whether youa��re rocketingA�down a racetrack or parked out in theA�open. Rs 2.5 crore (ex-showroom,A�Chennai). Details: mercedes-amg.com
