Audi R8 review

Things We Like in R8

  • The R8’s cabin is ergonomically designed as the controls for the majority of functions are within an arm's reach of the driver
  • Thanks to its multiple driving modes and tamed power delivery, the R8 is a supercar that can be used on a daily basis
  • The 2017 R8 is based on a new aluminium chassis with carbon fibre-reinforced plastics which reduces its weight by 15 per cent and yet increases rigidity by 40 per cent.
  • Though not specified, the R8’s ground clearance is enough to take on patchy roads
  • Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system ensures that the car is glued to the ground. It doesn’t oversteer like many other rear-engined cars do. Instead, it has a fair bit of understeer that helps find the limits of the car much easier
  • With a combined fuel economy of 12.3kmpl, the R8 is as efficient as many mass-market cars in India

Things We Don't Like in R8

  • The R8’s steering lacks the feel and feedback that is expected from a car from this class
  • With a 0-100kmph time of 3.2 seconds, the R8 is not the fastest in its class. The 570PS Nissan GT-R can do the same in 3 seconds.
  • While some of its rivals can seat up to four passengers, the R8 can only manage two.

Stand Out Features

  • The R8 is powered by a naturally-aspirated engine, which makes it one of the best sounding cars in its class

CarDekho Verdict

With the R8, Audi has managed an amalgamation of stunning design with more than adequate performance. It is also one of the most comfortable and best-handling supercar in its class
