2020 Audi R8 V10 review

Sharpened up for 2020, Audi's exceptional and accessible supercar just keeps getting better.

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018, Paul Maric: Audi R8 RWS

Power. You can never have too much of it. So when Audi decided to create their first ever rear-wheel drive car, how apt that it would be in a beastly sports car with a fire-breathing naturally aspirated V10. I first had the chance to experience the Audi R8 RWS at Phillip Island during the local launch...

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018

Welcome to the inaugural CarAdvice Winners Circle, our debut annual award program showcasing our editorial team’s motoring highlight releases of the year.

Video: Audi R8 v Ferrari F8 v Porsche 911 Turbo S - Drive Car of the Year 2021 Best Super Sports Car

The Audi R8 Performance represents the pinnacle of the R8 range, quattro system present and accounted for, not to mention aggressive style and a screaming NA V10.

Cruising Sydney's best tunnels in the Audi R8 RWS

A 5.0-litre V10. A stonking 397kW. The sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds. And it’s 50kg lighter than its quattro AWD big brother making it more nimble and agile. This is the rear wheel drive Audi R8 RWS. Unfortunately there are a distinct lack of Alps and snow capped peaks in the suburbs surrounding Sydney but there is something that the harbour city is certainly not lacking in...

Old v New: 2020 Audi R8 V10 RWD v 2008 Audi R8 V8 manual

I’m still genuinely amazed every time I lay eyes on a first-generation Audi R8.  Its design really came to fruition in 2003 with the Audi Le Mans quattro concept. The production car, which followed three years later in 2006, didn’t deviate much from the original brief at all. Consider that the first-generation car was conceptualised at the turn of the century, then...

Audi R8 V10 Plus v Audi A3 1.0 TFSI comparison

The latest R8 V10 Plus, with an incredible 449kW and 560Nm from its naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10, is the most-powerful road car Audi has ever devised. On paper, it's also the quickest. But power and pace comes at a price: almost $390k – $389,616 to be exact – before on-roads or before you even think about ticking any options boxes...
