2021 Audi R8 Review, Pricing, and Specs
Mounted behind the high-tech cabin of a V-10 engine, the 2021 R8 is Audi’s Hollow car. It shares the engine and mechanics with the Lamborghini Hurricane, but the subtle personality and appearance of the R8 make a subtle statement. Depending on what you have in mind for your six-figure super car, it can be a good thing or a bad thing. At 602 horsepower, the R8 actually flies, sending the exit note down your spine. Inside, Audi showcases all of its cool technological features, including standard built-in navigation, including a standard reproducible digital gauge. Used throughout the delicate material and is similar in price to the cabin piece R8 requested.
What’s new for 2021?
Audi has introduced the rear wheel drive in the 532-hp entry-level versions of the coupe and Spider. This setup came with last year’s 562-hp V-10 and all-wheel drive, replacing the original offerings. Now, to get an all-wheel drive, you have to move on to the more expensive and more powerful R8 performance models that produce 602 horsepower.
Pricing and the one to buy
With a car as bright as the R8, we suggest going with the Spider. After all, when going up and down, passengers are able to get a better look at the lucky dog behind the wheel. Choosing between standard and performance models is a tough decision. On the one hand, even the 532-hp V-10 offers incredible acceleration and lament similar to the 602-hp version. On the other hand, rolling up to the next car and coffee event with the final R8 is a little more cool.
Engine, transmission and performance
The R8’s V-10 engine is powered by two forces, powerful enough to knock the air out of suspicious passengers, and your earlobes are able to breathe out of their other world. The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic in the R8 is not exactly the most smooth gearbox. It occasionally falls very suddenly and sometimes very deep, causing the neck to accelerate and quickly rise to a higher gear. The base R8 comes with an adaptive suspension and the performance models are fitted with a more aggressive fixed-damper configuration. Both are attractively soaked and provide a comfortable ride that you can endure without fatigue on long trips. The R8’s superb nature is flawed, however: in full attack mode, it simply does not handle corners as confidently as its rivals, perhaps making you feel more restless than you would expect from a super car. The standard steering wheel setting is straightforward and transmits information along the way to the driver’s hand with an adequate feel.
Fuel economy and real-world MPG
It is not an economic choice. But does it really matter? According to the report, all-wheel drive R8 variants have similar EPA estimates for fuel economy, regardless of roof type or horsepower rating, but they are not attractive. In fact, the R8’s fuel economy numbers (13 mpg in the city and 20 on the highway, if you really want to know) are so low that all buyers have to pay a $ 1700 gas-guzzler tax as part of the selling price. So be it.
Interior, comfort and goods
Minimalism has never felt so luxurious. Twice as large as the infotainment screen, Audi offers a refreshingly simple layout and elegantly carved sports seats and high-definition digital measurement clusters allow access to the cockpit’s central platform. The interior allows for a bit of customization in terms of color and texture: black, gray, brown and red leather is offered in a flat or smooth pattern and with matching or different stitching. Overall, it is a well-executed cockpit with easily accessible controls, including smooth elements such as the ignition button located on the steering wheel. No one buys a super car for its practicality, and the R8 is not subject to sectoral prominence given its actual cargo capacity. In our test, it only allowed one of our portable suitcases, so pack light.
Information and connection
Excellent V Virtual Cockpit Measurement Cluster Performs dual function here, displaying tools and MMI infotainment system. Like Audi’s other cars like the A4 and TT, it feels like a future here. High-resolution navigation is standard, and the system can be controlled via voice commands, steering-wheel mounted buttons, or the wheelbarrow on the center console. Keyboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspots are also standard; Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also available.
Safety and driver assistance features
Supercars, being sold in such low volumes, are seldom inspected by our nation’s security agencies, so the crash of the R8 is unheard of. Audi offers very few driver accessories, but the R8 coupe features a full airbag. Among the key security features:
- Standard automatic high beam headlamps
- Standard front and rear parking sensors
Liability and maintenance coverage
Audi’s warranty coverage for the R8 races surpasses all other rivals except the Akura NSX. This transaction includes a supplementary scheduled maintenance visit during the first year of ownership.
- Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
- The powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
- Complementary maintenance covers a year or 10,000 miles
