Like a well-fitting Italian suit or a fine bottle of red wine, the Audi R8 is classic in the sense that it is not subject to the whims of incoming and outgoing styles. Its exterior is sleek yet refined, bold without being ostentatious; the Audi R8 lets performance speak for itself. The 5.2 liter V10 engine is naturally aspirated, so drivers can feel the raw force of 525 horsepower without any turbo lag. The last of its generation with hydraulic steering, the friction of the wheels on the road echoes throughout the interior. The sound of the sports exhaust sends a shiver down the spine.
More than just powerful, though, the Audi R8 is supremely drivable. It is one of the few supercars with all-wheel drive and an S-tronic dual clutch transmission, doing away with the lurching gear shifts commonly found in other vehicles of its class. The R8 is equally equipped to handle a rain-drenched ride through the country as a sun-soaked cruise on the highway, and it makes both just as thrilling.
The Audi exclusive diamond stitch interior and premium Bang & Olufsen sound system combine with undeniable beauty and performance to create an unrivaled luxury driving experience. Tailor made for any auto-connoisseur, the Audi R8 is as modern as it is timeless. Take one look and you’ll know: some things never go out of style.
