2018 Audi R8 5.2 V10 Plus Price, Specs, Release Date

For 2017 Audi has redesigned the car that in 2010 I declared my single favorite car the R8, now I had resisted picking a single favorite car for a long time but I was overcome by the styling, the driving experience and the price now that attended second-generation, I’m going to go through some of the changes, and decide whether it’s still a favorite. Styling has evolved but not too much in 2018 Audi R8.

The most noticeable difference is the sides wait 2018 Audi R8, used to run all the way from the top to the bottom. It’s now split into two pieces, of the previous generation some design critics that this element was designed to trick the eye and make the car look a little less awkward and flat-sided. Now that side plates / can kind of see what they mean some angles. one of the most compelling outside elements is actually an inside element, proudly displayed under the rear glass, a 5.2 liter V10 engine, one of my favorite experiences with the 2018 R8 is walking up to it after dark worth parks, unlocking it with a remote and seeing the engine bays in a bluish light it never gets old.

Unlike so many cars these days the engine doesn’t have forced air induction, but it does have a red line of 8,500 rpm. In the base 2018 Audi R8 it makes 540 horsepower, and in the R8 plus like this one 610 horsepower, good enough 40 to 60 time estimated is 3.2 seconds, and it sounds spectacular in the process. There were many complaints about the interior quality of the previous generation are R8 2018 of Audi stepped up for 2017 and are richer interior.

One thing to know about is the seat in the R8 plus, standard racing shell style sheets which has fewer adjustments found them left comfortable. So you either have to stick with the regular R8 if you care about that or, if you get an Audi R8 2018 plus you might want to opt for the diamond stitching leather package, which restores the original seats, with more adjustment and talk $5,000.


2018 R8 really like the new steering wheel, it has lots of well-executed buttons including the engine start/stop where you can see it music the active exhaust a few stability control mode, and the drive select button. At one thing we don’t love is what he calls the virtual cockpit display which is the only display in the car behind the steering wheel, and that’s the problem, it behind the steering wheel it can easily be blocked, if you like to have the steering wheel low , it has beautiful graphics a really fast processor, you can even see the navigation here that’s not that, but the instruction is the thing and also even though you can control that both with the steering wheel and the multimedia interface not here in the center console, your passenger can’t. We all seem to agree charge com that you’d be better off either with the center mounted display or maybe both.

So how does it drive it’s still great, it remains a well-balanced fire with the engine, and Quattro all-wheel-drive standard with a bias to the rear which gives it a rear-wheel-drive field. If anything that actually like more torque to the rear, but given that most of the weight is in the back it’s probably safer to have it the way it is.


The steering turn in is really sharp ,and typical about either feedback isn’t great but it’s certainly livable even with the dynamic steering system, that’s an option, livable really defined the R8 2018 and a lot of ways at least in the base are a version, which has standard magnetic ride control. The comfort position of which really makes it reasonably comfortable for the type of car it is. in either trim level you feel like you’re in the fulcrum of a seesaw where the front and rear of the car moving the fair amount that you’re not as much, but i have to say the 2018 Audi R8 plus with it fixed sports suspension is probably a little too firm unless you have really great roads to drive it up.

So is this still my favorite car, i have nothing to replace it with but I’m still going to say no and this is a primary reason right here. The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, now there’s nothing wrong with it, it with the exception of a little bit of lag. It works really well, and it actually behaves better at low speed, more refined in the previous generation. its what’s not here and that is a six-speed manual transmission it has been discontinued, now I would always want a manual transmission, but especially that one because it had a gated shifter, which is both unique and now essentially extinct and because it makes wonderful clacking noises when you move through the gears, not the quickest way of shifting but it sounded great a compliment to the v10 engine.


and then there’s a price, now that the very good v8 engine has been discontinued the starting price for the 2018 Audi R8 is over $164,000 or over 191 for the R8 plus, that’s a far pride from 2015 faith price of a $117,000, now for this much money, I would want even better handling road-holding, and three petals integrated shifter.
