What is an Audi R8?
The most everyday of the everyday supercars. As it is an Audi, since the cottage will contain 95th percentile people, since it is ergonomically sound, since it’s reliable and well built and comes from a company that assembles approximately 1.8 million other dependable, well built automobiles every year.
But also: yelling 8,700rpm V10. Unusual juxtaposition. Audi, righteous doyenne of the Waitrose class, being one of the final bastions of natural aspiration. When others are downsizing and turbocharging (to the detriment of noise and response) the R8 continues with a free-breathing 5.2-litre V10. It won’t necessarily be like this. We know that a V6 hybrid is coming — in fact we’re almost surprised it is not here yet — but for now being the range begins and ends with V10.
Today with more power. As you can tell from the edgier nose, the R8 was facelifted. Nevertheless a two model range, but with the Plus now renamed Performance. That has received a boost from 604 to 614bhp, while the entry level version is up from 533 to 562bhp. A figure that puts it toe-to-toe with McLaren’s 570S. The rear drive-only RWS? That is gone now.
Outwardly you’re taking a look at new, sharper bumpers at both ends, bigger exhaust pipes and also those three slots across the nose which hark back to the 1984 Sport Quattro Group B rally car. They’re also on the new A1. Elsewhere the strategy was to fractionally sharpen the driving experience by stiffening the suspension, fitting a fresh carbon anti-roll bar in front (40 percent lighter than the older steel one) and recalibrating the steering especially the discretionary factor ratio Dynamic Steering.
