14 City / 22 Highway
Automotive Editor -

Audi's resident supercar, the mid-engine R8 returns this year with less weight, more power, and even greater enthusiasm for the track. It's most compelling attribute might be something you didn't expect: the ability to cruise comfortably in everyday driving.

What's New for 2017

After sitting out 2016, the R8 is back in redesigned form.

Choosing Your Audi R8

The two-passenger R8 has been treated to an all-new platform, featuring a mostly aluminum spaceframe with carbon fiber bracing. The results is a 40 percent increase in rigidity and a loss of 110 pounds. The body itself is slightly wider and lower for a more aggressive stance.

The sole engine is a 5.2-liter V10, which produces 540 or 610 horsepower depending on the trim level. Audi's S Tronic dual-clutch automated manual transmission does the shifting. You also get standard launch control, all-wheel drive, and selectable driving modes (Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, Performance). The magnetic ride control system provides a remarkably calm ride in Comfort or Auto modes. The Performance mode is designed specifically for the track.

The R8's new virtual cockpit places a 12.3-inch display screen directly in front of the driver.

As before, the R8 is available in V10 and V10 Plus trims:


Gets the 540-horsepower engine, plus heated sport seats in Nappa Leather, a body-color active spoiler, 19-inch wheels, and a full-feature infotainment and navigation system. A rearview camera and parking sensors are also standard.

V10 Plus

Packs the 610-horsepower V10, carbon ceramic brakes, and a firmer suspension (without magnetic ride control). You also get racing seats, extended leather interior trim, and carbon fiber body components, including a fixed rear spoiler. The V10 Plus can hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds, versus 3.5 for the regular V10.

Both models are eligible for a premium Bang & Olufsen sound system, dynamic steering with variable ratios, and 20-inch wheels. Most of trim upgrades found on the V10 Plus can be added to the V10 as individual options.

CarsDirect Tip

With its highly adaptable ride, the V10 is clearly the better choice for personal transportation. An upgrade to the V10 Plus is only in order if you intended to drive competitively.
