Audi R-8
Vs.
Bucatti Veyron
Let’s look at the Audi R-8
I am considering purchasing this car because of
its sleek design and how fast it can go. It is well
known as being a racing but classy car. Also, I
have always wanted this car when I was younger
and it would be nice to fulfill my dream.

been exceeded and reduces engine power and/or applies select brakes to help
prevent the driver from losing control of the vehicle.
Front-impact airbags for the driver and passenger have been designed to protect
the head during a frontal crash.
Side impact airbags for the front seats have been designed to protect the torso
during a side impact collision.
