Reviews

Many publications were hailing it as the first car to truly be able to beat the Porsche 911 — considered by many to be one of the best sports cars ever made, and the leader in its class.[citation needed] Initial comparison tests have proven quite positive in this respect; Evo Magazine listed it as a "Gran Turismo",[7] compared the R8 to the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, and BMW M6 and after praising the R8's "amazing stability, traction and grip, unparalleled steering accuracy and bite, (and) its uncannily flat and disturbance-free ride", claimed that as a result of "the sublime effortlessness of it all", the Audi is a better supercar. The article concluded that "Audi humbles Porsche.

Other publications have also written similar reviews of the Audi beating the Porsche in comparison tests.[1][9] The Porsche Carrera 4S, however, costs about $20,000 less (U.S.).[10][11] The $40,000 cheaper but more powerful and practical Nissan GT-R outperformed the R8 in a CAR Magazine comparison test; nevertheless, the article lauded the Audi's "agility and lightness of touch," declaring it "absolutely, utterly amazing to drive".[12] The Nissan GT-R is a coupé created by Nissan, released in Japan on December 6, 2007, and expected to be released internationally by early June of 2008. ...


Top Gear compared the two, and remarked that the R8 was "simultaneously less impressive and yet somehow more involving". On the R8 they wrote that "it rewards driver input", calling it "fantastic in a way that will appeal more to true car enthusiasts".[13] This article is about the current format of the BBC television programme. ...


On Bedford Autodrome, tested by Evo Magazine, R8 was faster than the Lamborghini Gallardo and Koenigsegg CCX.[citation needed]

The R8 TDI Le Mans produces 500 PS (493 hp/368 kW) and 1,000 N·m (738 ft·lbf) of torque. It uses Audi's quattro permanent four-wheel drive system, and is mid-engined.

Mid-engine in a Hanomag-Fahrgestell. ...


The R8 TDI Le Mans has modified suspension settings and brakes, to cope with the added power and weight (300 kg (661.4 lb)) as a result of replacing the standard V8 engine with the V12 TDI. The V12 TDI requires more cooling than the standard R8, hence the NACA duct in the roof to feed additional air in to the engine. The vents on the front and back of the car have also been increased by 20% in size. The headlights are all-LED. For its appearance at the Detroit Motor Show, Audi fitted 20-inch alloy wheels. The rear bulkhead has been moved forward in order to accommodate the V12, meaning it loses the space behind the rear seats usually found on the standard R8.

V10 engine

A V10 engined version is also planned for 2009, but was considered being put on hiatus as of December 2007.[citation needed] This version of the R8, was initially going to have the same engine from the RS6, a 5.0 litre V10 engine. It was thought initially that this version of the engine, which produces 580 PS (572 hp/427 kW), was going to be fitted. However, the twin-turbo system overheated, and one prototype was destroyed at the Nürburgring.[17] It was initially expected that the production version of the high-power R8 would have a new V10 engine developed from the V8 engine that powers the RS4 and the R8. However, a different approach using the V10 of the Gallardo is currently in the final design stages, so much so that the car has now been signed off for production, and will appear during the second quarter of 2009.[18] A V10 engine is a V engine with 10 cylinders in two banks of five. ...
