Audi R8 V8
- 196 MPH
- 430 HP
- 3.7 S
- $US170 000
The Audi R8 FSI V8 is proof that more isn’t necessarily better. While the current R8 comes with a V10 engine that pumps out 525 horsepower, it only just eclipses the original, 430 horsepower V8 version by half-a-second when going 0-62 MPH. Yet, behind the wheel, on track the V8-powered R8 leaves nothing on the table. It’s agile and precise, thanks in part to Audi venerable Quattro all-wheel drive and yes, to that V8 engine that sings merrily up and down the rev range to its 7,900 RPM redline. Behind the wheel, it’s such a joy to drive that it makes you realize sometimes car makers increase engine capacity because they can, not because they have to.
Tips From A Pro
"The Audi R8 FSI V8 is so precise and so eager to go fast that reaching your potential is more about believing in yourself than in the car. Pick a line through the corner and the R8 will faithfully guide you through it. Push hard and it rewards you not just with a quicker lap, but with a great V8 sound."
Audi R8 V10 Plus
- 205 MPH
- 610 HP
- 3.2 S
- $US202 000
As its full name implies, the R8 has a 5.2-liter V10 FSI engine that pumps out 610 horsepower at 8,250 RPM along with 413 ft-lb of torque at 6,500 revs. The R8 channels power to four wheels through its famed quattro® all-wheel drive system while the driver keeps it all under control via a paddle actuated 7-speed S-tronic dual clutch gearbox. At the end of the straights, carbon-ceramic brakes enable you to hang onto the throttle a bit longer and still control the speed before turn in.
Tips From A Pro
"This is a car that has everything you want and nothing you don’t. What makes it special on the track are the carbon-ceramic brakes and the steering. As you approach the corners, hold the speed a little deeper than you thought possible, then push the brakes hard. Now you’re ready to turn the corner. The steering feedback is so precise you’ll feel the grip with such confidence that you’ll quickly find the limit without going over it."
