: Audi Style
: 5.2 quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (5.2L 10cyl 6M) True cost of ownership
: $193,429 Purchase price
: $170,175 Combined (city and highway) MPG
The Audi R8’s purchase price of $170,175 is more than the third-most expensive vehicle’s true cost of ownership. The two-door sports car also has the second-most expensive maintenance costs, reaching $7,370 over five years. It also has particularly high fuel costs, thanks to its 13 MPG fuel efficiency in the city. The R8 does relatively poorly by JD Powers’ standards, scoring a three out of five for both overall quality and design. Despite this, there were 1,173 registrations for the car in 2011 — the most of any year. (AP Photo/Reed Saxon) More From 24/7 Wall Street
