Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi R8 coupe?

Just because you want to drive a fast car doesn’t mean you have to compromise your green credentials. The Honda NSX has a 3.5-litre petrol V6 and three electric motors to produce a combined figure of 574bhp and cracks 0-60mph in just 2.8sec. It doesn’t have the same aural drama or as nice an interior, though.

The Porsche 911 may be a predictable choice, but that's because it makes perfect sense if you’re after a practical sports car and more playful handling than offered by the four-wheel-drive R8.

Overview

If you're after an accomplished and thrilling supercar a used Audi R8 could be just the ticket

  • Addictive V10 engine
  • Fluid handling
  • Refined cruising manners
  • Not as playful on the limit as some rivals
  • Very thirsty when driven hard
  • Still not exactly cheap to buy
