About Audi R8

The Audi R8, all-new for 2017, is a shining example of the civilized supercar. It used to be that exotic cars focused more on high-powered straight-line performance or track-specialized handling, but offered little in the way of the regular driving experience. That has changed. Cars like the Audi R8, Acura NSX and Porsche 911 Turbo reach 60 mph in around three seconds, have striking good looks and incredible grip, yet you can drive them to and on the track, with near-equal joy in both arenas. The resculpted R8 benefits from a combination of Audi's racing technology and road-car savvy. The new car is wider, lighter and faster than the previous generation, with an elegant Audi interior infused with cutting-edge luxury technology.
