The R8 does everything a proper supercar should - and then someread the full model review
Plus models bring more power, but also a different alloy wheel design, high-beam assist, carbon fibre accents outside, bucket seats in a finer leather and a different sports steering wheel. The standard carbon ceramic brakes justify much of the premium that this model commands over the standard R8. Even so, while the R8 Plus is good value by the standards of its class, we still favour the cheaper model.
With 603bhp, this is even more ferocious than the standard car; it feels almost computer game like in the way it accelerates. It sounds great and is hilariously fast, but we think the cheaper and lower powered car is just as dramatic on road or track.
