The 2021 Audi R8 is a mid-engined two-seater sports car, which uses Audi’s trademark, Quattro, with permanent all-wheel drive. The Audi R8 served as Audi’s prominent sports car. Based on the Lamborghini Huracan, the Audi R8 is powered by a mid-engined V10 that produces 562 horsepower. Although its specifications suggest an extreme supercar, we found the Audi R8 perfectly comfortable to drive on the road. The engine is also a mechanic with a debauched Lamborghini Huracan, but the tame personality and appearance of the R8 give a more subtle statement.
The excellent all-wheel-drive system gives the R8 a laser-like focus in corners, and the handling is sublime. Like most mid-engined sports cars, the R8 has no storage space, and there is no terrible amount of space inside. With a car as dazzling as the R8, we suggest you go with the Spyder. After all, from the top down, passers-by will be able to take a better look at the happy dog behind the wheel.
2021 Audi R8 Interior
The interior of the Audi offers a refreshingly simple look and allows beautifully designed sports seats and a cluster of high-resolution digital gauges to occupy a central position in the cockpit of the R8. Audi allows quite a few adjustments when it comes to interior colors and textures: Black, gray, brown, and red leather is offered in a flat or stitched pattern, with matching or contrasting seams. All in all, it’s a nicely executed cockpit with easily accessible controls, including smooth functions like the power button located on the steering wheel. No one buys a supercar because of its practicality, and the R8 does not follow the trend of the segment by offering real cargo capacity. In our testing, it provided space for just one of our handbags, so pack some light.
The excellent virtual cockpit cluster here has a dual duty, displaying both the instrumentation and the MMI infotainment system. It feels as futuristic here as in other Audi cars, like the A4 and TT. High-resolution navigation is standard, and the system can be operated with voice commands, buttons on the steering wheel, or by clicking on a wheel on the center console. A built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi access point is also standard; The capabilities of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also.
2021 Audi R8 Engine
The R8’s V-10 engine is offered in two powers, both powerful enough to push the wind to undoubted passengers and capable of clogging your eardrums with their alien exhalations. However, the R8’s dual-clutch automatic is not exactly the smoothest transmission. It occasionally shifts too fast abruptly, and perhaps too deeply, causing an acceleration of the door cracking followed by an almost instantaneous shift into a higher gear.
The base R8 comes standard with adjustable suspension, while the Performance models are equipped with a more aggressive fixed damper setting. Both absorb bumps perfectly and provide a comfortable ride that you could handle without fatigue on long journeys. However, the flexible nature of the R8 also has a drawback: in full attack mode, it simply doesn’t handle corners as confidently as rivals, and sometimes feels more anxious than you’d expect it to be a supercar. The standard steering setting is direct and with sufficient feeling transmits information from the road into the hands of the driver.
2021 Audi R8 Safety
Supercars are sold in such small quantities, they are rarely tested by the security agencies of our country, so the resistance of the R8 to an accident is unknown. Audi offers few options to help the driver, the Audi R8 is equipped with a full set of airbags. Key safety features include high beams, front and rear parking sensors for the 2021 Audi R8 Coupe model.
