Introduction

What Car? says...

A spaceship landing in the brand's line-up. That’s how the Audi R8 was described – by Audi – when it arrived well over a decade ago.

Back then, we were used to Audi’s considered approach to its everyday models and also its flurries into motorsport, most notably with the legendary Audi Quattro rally car. But a supercar? That was new. That was news. And, a decade or so on, the R8 has garnered the respect of its rivals.

It comes in two different power outputs and both sport well north of 500bhp. Both versions come with an S tronic seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, but there’s a choice of rear-wheel drive or quattro four-wheel drive.

Is all that enough to make it the pick of a talented bunch of seriously respected supercars? Read this review to find out. And whichever car you settle on, visit the free What Car? New Car Buying service to see how much we can save you on scores of makes and models, including the Audi R8.
