AUDI R8 V8 2012 - 2015

Audi introduced a mild facelift for its mid-engined supercar in 2012 and made it quicker thanks to a new, seven-speed automatic gearbox.

The R8 was Audi's flagship among its sports cars. It was a proper supercar developed together with Lamborghini. Worth mentioning that Audi owned the Italian brand, and it shared some parts with it. And that's how the Italian supercars got more reliable and how the Audi made a big step away from the bland look.

From the outside, the 2012 model was enhanced and featured standard full-LED headlights and taillights. At the front, the single-frame grille with rounded corners at the top was a big statement for the brand's image. Audi installed a pair of big side-scoops to cool the brakes. On its side, behind the doors, the carmaker installed functional air-intakes for the engine. A carbon-fiber panel enhanced the car's look, creating a visual distance between the cockpit and the engine bay.

Inside, Audi brought more comfort and luxury items than on the non-facelifted version. A pair of carbon-fiber bucket seats were available on the options list. Fine Nappa leather and carbon-fiber trims were spread around the cabin. But most of the controls and buttons were carried-over from other Audi vehicles, and that spoiled the image of a unique Audi supercar.

The carmaker placed the same V8 engine as its predecessor under the hood but improved it by ten hp. It was paired as standard to a six-speed gearbox. Starting with the 2012 model, the R8 was available with a new, seven-speed automatic (dual-clutch) gearbox.

AUDI R8 V8 8 month OWNERSHIP update


As Audi's top model, the R8 sports car boasts a howling 602-hp V-10 engine just behind its snug two-seat cabin. It shares a lot with the Lamborghini Huracán, but the R8 is less flamboyantly styled. It's also less engaging to drive, but buyers seeking a super car that they can drive daily may find the Audi's refinement appealing. The interior is sparsely equipped, with all infotainment functions handled via the digital gauge cluster, but it's still a comfortable and upscale environment worthy of the R8's steep starting price. More cargo space would be appreciated, but that's not why you buy a car like this. You buy an R8—or its rivals, the Porsche 911 and McLaren 570S—for the fun that comes from driving it.

What's New for 2022?

The base coupe and Spyder convertible receive a 30-horse boost for 2022. The V-10 now makes 562 horsepower and 406 pound-feet. Both body styles can now be had with a Sport Exhaust package and a Dynamic package. The former is self-explanatory. The latter includes ceramic brakes, unique 20-inch wheels, and upgraded racing seats with nappa leather upholstery.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

For some added flash, we'd suggest going with the Spyder. After all, with the top down, passersby will be able to get a better look at the lucky dog behind the wheel. Choosing between the standard and Performance models is a tougher decision. On the one hand, the 562-hp V-10 provides incredible acceleration and the same bellowing wail as the 602-hp car. On the other hand, rolling up to the next Cars and Coffee event with the ultimate R8 may feel just a bit more awesome.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The R8's V-10 engine is offered in two strengths, both potent enough shake your eardrums with their otherworldly exhalations. The R8's seven-speed dual-clutch automatic isn't the smoothest gearbox. It occasionally downshifts too abruptly, causing neck-snapping acceleration followed by an immediate upshift. The base R8 comes standard with an adaptive suspension, while Performance models are fitted with a more aggressive fixed-damper setup. Both soak up bumps admirably and provide a comfortable ride that you could tolerate without fatigue on long trips. The R8's supple nature comes with a drawback, however: In full-attack mode, it doesn't handle corners as confidently as its rivals, feeling more unsettled than you'd expect a supercar to be. The standard steering setup is direct and relays information from the road to the driver's hands with sufficient feel.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

An economical choice it is not. Rear-drive models do 14 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel-drive cars fair even worse: 13 and 20, respectively. Given this poor showing, all buyers must pay a $1700 gas-guzzler tax as part of the sale price. So be it. For more information about the R8's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Minimalism never felt so luxurious. By having the instrument cluster double as the infotainment screen, Audi provides a refreshingly simple layout and lets the beautifully sculpted sport seats and high-resolution digital gauge display take center stage in the R8's cockpit. Audi allows for quite a bit of customization when it comes to interior colors and textures: Black, gray, brown, and red leather are offered in either a flat or quilted pattern with matching or contrast stitching. Overall, it's a beautifully executed cockpit with easy-to-reach controls, including the ignition button located on the steering wheel. No one buys a supercar for its practicality, and the R8 doesn't buck the segment trend by offering real cargo capacity. In our testing, it provided space for just one carry-on suitcases. Pack light.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The excellent Virtual Cockpit gauge cluster does double duty here, displaying both instrumentation and the MMI infotainment system. It feels as futuristic here as it does in Audi's other cars, such as the A4 and the TT. High-resolution navigation is standard, and the system can be controlled via voice commands, steering-wheel-mounted buttons, or a clickwheel on the center console. An onboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is standard, as are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Audi offers little in the way of driver-assistance features, but the R8 coupe comes equipped with a full complement of airbags. For more information about the R8's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

  • Standard automatic high-beams
  • Standard front and rear parking sensors

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Audi's R8 matches or exceeds all rivals in terms of warranty coverage except for the Acura NSX. The deal includes a scheduled-maintenance visit within the first year of ownership.

  • Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Complimentary maintenance is covered for one year or 10,000 miles

AUDI R8 V8 2007 - 2012

Audi may have been the last German premium brand to show a supercar, but when it showed it, they did it properly with the R8 V8 in 2006 at the Paris Auto Show.

After purchasing the Lamborghini supercar brand, Audi thought that they can build something in the same segment. They already had the engines and transmission to do it. All they need was a good platform and a bodywork. In 2003, the Audi showed the "LeMans" concept-car after three consecutive wins at the 24h of LeMans race. Based on that, the Audi made the R8 supercar. It was a light, small, coupe with middle V8 engine and all-wheel-drive.

Inside, there were numerous parts from other Audi models, which were criticized. But the car was true to its image. The 420 hp naturally aspirated engine was mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Unusual for an Audi, it had a gate pattern for the gearshift lever, something like a Ferrari. But that didn't matter too much. The car was fast and handled very well. Unlike any other Audi, it was more rear-biased so it was prone to oversteer instead of understeer like the rest of the Audi range.

The engine was a naturally aspirated V8 and it was so reliable that it could be driven every day. It also was available with a 6-speed automatic transmission with a launch-control mode and paddle shifters behind the steering wheels. To improve stability, it had magnetorheological dampers, which could be stiffened to provide better cornering speed.
