2018 Audi R8 Review – Life miserable when you’re close relative of Lamborghini Huracán and your name Audi. Difficult because, sharing the Audi R8 2017 and mechanical imprinting, the identical cousin emiliana comparison is inevitable. And this is even more valid for this version Plus, which is the top of the range, which by the same V10 Lambo extracts the same 610 horsepower. And, from the point of view of the price, the differences are not that large: the Audi costs 195 thousand euros, about 12 thousand of Huracán. And, in order to equip it as the test specimen, you get almost at an altitude of 215 thousand. We say to those few who still might think that the 2017 R8 is a big sister of the TT.
Kind, but also not. If there is once the word cockpit are spending a bit better than usual, is this. First, because the place is perfect. And it’s already a great place to start. And then for the great work that has been done in terms of ergonomics. Here you can do almost everything, without taking your hands off the wheel. The buttons on the races are numerous, but have a clear logic that takes away from any embarrassment, and everything else takes care the linear completeness of screens. All things possible until you go plan, because if you start to get serious is certainly not the case of mess around with such amenities. The 207 Audi R8 is, in fact, a true supercar, capable of going strong like few others. In addition to the typical Audi Drive select, on the steering wheel there is also the key Performance: with the ring that surrounds you choose among Snow, Wet or Dry, and the Audi is ready to show what he is capable of. Already in Dynamic isn’t the most docile little creature of the Earth, but from this point forward the New Audi R8 becomes pure savagery.
2018 Audi R8 Review Test Drive
R8 Attacks the asphalt. Is less dramatic and theatrical relative of Sant’Agata, because it never loses sight of the completely rational, but the ability to attack the asphalt remains top notch. The considerable readiness steering and the car body just as easily when changing direction make agile more than on paper, its 1,771 kilograms could let suspect. By now, even on such cars the light steering were cleared long ago, but here a little more cargo there would have been fine. On the other hand, instills some confidence to the driver, who never has the feeling of walking next to the precipice without knowing where he is. Merit in most of all-wheel drive, must for excellence home Audi. The best of the best still remains the V10 aspirated, which has a readiness and ability to take tours that are sensational. A nastiness that comes at 8,500 rpm, nothing less. Moreover, amplify the close ratios, which minimises the speed jumps after shifting: the double clutch rattles off the gears with great speed, as well as with that punctuality is crucial when everything happens so quickly.
