Over the past day or so, a picture that’s allegedly of Bernie Sanders driving a roughly $160,000 Audi R8 has been circulating online, along with the allegations that he purchased the car with donor money. Is any of this even remotely true?
Hey look it’s an Audi R8 without a roof.
Here’s the new Audi R8 Spyder, unofficially. It’s very... handsome. Check out the full spread over on AutomobileMag for the rest of the spy shots.
Just before the big reveal of the new 2016 Audi R8 earlier last year we heard murmurs that the German luxury brand’s supercar may take a trip down the downsizing slide and fit a twin-turbo V6 eventually. Now, if this reportedly leaked product plan is anything to go by, eventually is actually 2018.
Being a passenger next to a racing driver like Chris Evans’ new Top Gear co-host Sabine Schmitz can shake up most stomachs, but perhaps we expect Jeremy Clarkson’s replacement to have tougher guts in his line of work.
The sun just set on the original Audi R8, a supercar that helped put modern Audi on the map, but it’s rising on a new one.
The 2016 Audi R8 V10 Plus is so new that you might as well have to wipe off a layer of afterbirth before getting behind the wheel. The second generation of Audi’s mid-engined sportsbeast is hitting European dealerships now, however, and that means that it was inevitable that one day someone would end up flipping one…
When Audi launched the R8 it helped pull the brand up to become just as powerful as the other two German luxury juggernauts. Mercedes has long used AMG for their sportier models, leaving BMW looking like it had a missing link at the top of the range. Well not anymore! Maybe.
Powersliding a 602 horsepower mid-engine sports car only happens in video games, right?
No revving engine. No cracking exhaust noise. No flames. Just tire noise and displaced wind. This is what you get when you watch the electric Audi R8 E-Tron lap the Nürburgring. It’s a silent ghost that haunts the Green Hell.
Phoenix Racing won last year’s Nürburgring 24 by setting a new distance record after completing 159 laps. The car you see here is wearing their #1 sticker.
[Mind you, the fact that Glickenhaus has the coolest car on the grid doesn’t mean last year’s winner, Audi forgot how to make a badass R8. Quite the opposite. I would pull over, just in case. Photo credit: Máté Petrány/Jalopnik]
Tudor United SportsCar is at Laguna Seca this weekend for the Monterey Grand Prix, so that’s the perfect excuse to post this qualifying lap aboard Dion von Motlke’s Paul Miller Racing Audi R8 LMS. Crank up the volume and drown out all the lesser noises in your space with wonderful V10 sounds.
Hey everybody, here’s something that will ensure you never look at a car the same way ever again. It shows how Audi creates the new 2016 RS3 — by violently, hotly and wetly birthing it from the back of a quivering R8 in a sequence that would make Paul Verhoeven blush.
That used to be an Audi R8. It’s not a render. It’s real. I’ll let that thought swirl around in your mind-brain a bit. Are you ready to proceed?
I need to warn you that this isn’t going to be just a straightforward review of the Audi R8. The R8 has now been around for nearly a decade. Plenty of ink, both the Internet kind and the real kind, has been spilled describing how it drives. I will definitely address that, of course, but I have to start instead with a…
I have one of these for the next few days. I’m not complaining.
When Audi announced that the 2016 R8 would arrive in two flavors of V10, everyone surmised that a V8 was coming at some point as well, just like on the previous version of the company-defining supercar. Now the head of Quattro says that won't be the case.
