Beat speed is 199 mph in the V10 and 205 in the V10 Plus.

What's especially great is that Audi accomplishes these searing numbers without the guide of a turbocharger or supercharger, as both trims are naturally suctioned. There's no alternative for a manual transmission, however the automatic transmission utilizes a double grasp setup for exceptionally quick shifts that vibe on-point inevitably.

The R8's inordinate power includes some major disadvantages, as this car gets one of the most reduced fuel evaluations in the class. Under ordinary city driving, you'll get 14 mpg. This increments to 22 mpg on the roadway in case you're warily with the gas pedal.

Additionally, the MMI controller now can perceive inputs scribbled through fingertip, and it's situated on the comfort between the seats, where it falls promptly to hand.
