Which used Audi R8 coupe should I buy?

The R8 is nothing short of brilliant to drive. It handles beautifully and its driving experience is truly special. The four-wheel drive system provides the R8 with bags of grip and the driving position is spot on. The R8 is usable around town, too, and rewarding to drive even at sensible speeds.

In its life, there have been two basic engine configurations, a V8 and a V10, with both in various states of tune depending on age, and we would happily recommend either. Later V8s are more economical than earlier ones, so it might be better to try and seek out one of those, especially with the upgraded automatic gearbox, which makes the whole drive even smoother and actually faster.
