If you’re still sad about Audi’s Le Mans prototype effort going the way of the dodo, Audi has a mild consolation prize. It’s an R8 in Audi Sport racing colors, just like the R8s, R10s and others that you dearly miss seeing compete. Now you can live like Dieselgate never happened, and never forced any major cuts to…
First there was the Audi R8 Le Mans prototype. It was one of the most successful cars of its kind, and it was good. Then came the road-going R8 sports car, which was also good. Then the R8 sports car went racing in its own right, cementing Audi’s quest to dominate everything with something called an “R8.”
The Audi R8 is now a stable member of the not-quite-supercars club, so it’s heard to really remember just how bizarre it looked when it went on sale a decade ago.
Australia’s Mount Panorama Circuit is one of the greatest tracks in the world. Watch this howling Audi R8 LMS take it on and you’ll understand why.
Much as I am annoyed by Audi’s endless parade of crossovers and SUVs, and Audi’s lazy new styling and Audi’s not-totally-unraveled involvement in the Dieselgate scandal, Audi sure as hell knows how to make pretty paint. Here’s an Audi R8 in Riviera Blue. This is good.
I still think the Audi R8 e-Tron concept, first generation AND second generation all had promise. After a lengthy argument with an Audi exec at a table of journalists, apparently it was only ever supposed to be a limited time offer. Sure didn’t seem like it, but what a shame.
You already know the Audi R8 is a mighty supercar. Now saddle it with $40,000 worth of performance parts and you’ve got something else altogether: The Alpha 10. And it’s entirely too easy to terrorize the streets of Los Angeles—and yourself—in it.
Nordan Shat, a member of the professional esports team FaZe Clan, received a supremely unpleasant surprise thanks to a wayward Ford Mustang earlier this month. His Audi R8 was about to be loaded onto a trailer to be shipped to his new home when a Mustang peeled out Cars-and-Coffee-style into the R8, totaling it…
The best looking model out of the new Audi R8 lineup, the e-Tron, has been terminated after a production run of just under 100 cars, according to a report from Car And Driver.
If you’ve ever thought complaints to a major authority wouldn’t be heard, you may just be wrong. But in this case, that isn’t a good thing—a viewer who reportedly wasn’t fond of an Audi R8 ad “promoting irresponsible driving” got it banned from the internet, and the ad shows barely any driving at all.
The Audi R8 is good and nice, but it is a supercar. And sometimes supercars attract people who don’t know how to drive supercars (or really at all), and sometimes they cause accidents and flee the scene. Sometimes they’re such an idiot jamoke, they get caught on a dashcam driving like an idiot jamoke.
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?
Audi claims the V10 in the R8 LMS car is so reliable they rebuild it only between seasons. I don’t know how impressive that is (or isn’t), but I can tell you it looks very pretty.
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.
