NEW R8 IN CAPE TOWN: We asked photographer Andre Davids to capture Audi's second-generation R8, check out his 16 stupendous images of the new supercar. Image: Wheels24 / Andre Davids

Cape Town - We've driven the second-generation Audi R8 and lauded the automaker for building a thoroughbred supercar. We love its high-revving V10 engine, the direct steering and of course the way it looks.

Wheels24's Sean Parker writes "Celebrities are by definition special. They're the chosen few among us lesser mortals, garnering a million Instagram 'likes' and constantly filling the top stories list on Channel24. It's the lifestyle they lead, the charisma some exude and, most importantly for petrolheads, the cars they drive.

"I managed to get a taste of celebdom, albeit the automotive equivalent, while driving the second-generation Audi R8 in Cape Town. I think this has a lot to do with the design. Clad in Dayton Grey, the R8's steely LEDs managed to capture the attention of all road users."
