audi R8 V8 manual

by Andrew from Naples on Wed Mar 02 2016

spent 10 min writing a review but it vanished, I apologize IF it appears on the site along with this one. This review comes from a long time die hard Porsche fan- had two 911s, base model and S, had a Cayman S, and had a Cayenne. Its relevant information given many consider the 911 to be the apex predator of the sports car realm. I now own a 2015 R8 V8 manual transmission and feel it is superior in every way to the 911 Carrera S. Sure, the 911 perhaps is superior on a track, maybe. It was built for this. Do I take the track to work. No. I commute with the R8 and find the seats to be much more comfortable than the 911 which killed my back after 25 minutes despite having optional zillion way adjustable seats. The V8 in the R8 is heaven- pulls like mad and sounds like NO Porsche I have even driven- pure heaven. The Carrera S was fast but not until about 4k rpm, a V8 is on a different planet all together and one I much prefer. The quattro in the Audi is phenomenal- in wet or dry, the 911 liked to get tail happy on aggressive turns, the Quattro however sticks like glue, giving one a feeling of real confidence. The PDK in the Porsche got boring after a few months- sure it's quicker on a track- but there's that track again that I'm not taking to work. Audi spent a ton on R & D on the manual in the R8 and the gated shifter has been called one of the best in the world; it's truly superb and like NOTHING I have even driven- pure joy to drive, very raw, very engaging. Horrible they no longer make an R8 with a stick, BUY ONE while you can. The interior on the R8 feels much more solid than the 991 911 I think to much attn was spent on leaning down the weight of the 911 and things to me felt fragile and not as solid as the R8- steering wheel feels better and heftier, doors feel more solid. Last but not least, they sold 495 R8s in 2015 in the entire US, so folks rarely see these rare birds and you really feel like you have a special vehicle with all the attn it gets. The 911 was modern and attractive, but the R8 is other worldly exotic. really cant recommend this car enough.....

WOW

by Crow from Seattle, WA on Wed Jan 07 2015

We own the first 2015 Spyder V10 in the state, purely by luck. The double-cluth-7 speed automatic is a must! We owned an older 2012 R8 V10, and this new tranny is a quantum leap. Shifting now is lightning fast and dialed in. The extra 50 HP is a nice addition bringing the total to 550. Everything about this super sports car is perfection. You only live once, do yourself a favor and get one! Gary and Maureen

Best looking, most reliable car I've owned

by Alex Bartual from Orlando, Fl on Wed Jun 14 2017

Best car you can get for a nice Sunday drive, that you can also take to the track. Will definitely turn heads and produce smiles. Greatest sports car ever

An amazing everyday car

by Bpessell from West Hills, CA on Wed Nov 08 2017

My R8 Spyder is my everyday car. I currently have over 34,000 miles and I love it. I am getting ready to buy the new one. I have not had any problems and it is fun to drive. Just pricey.

Alright.

by Me on Wed Sep 13 2017

You won't really get a "bang for you buck" with this car. It has great handling, but the transition between gears felt off. The sound system was also kind of "wonky". Not much room to have stuff like groceries, but enough room for a backpack or two. This car is only for people who like Audi's designs.

Our Take on the 2015 Audi R8

Editor's note: This review was written in September 2014 about the 2014 Audi R8. Little of substance has changed with this year's model. To see what's new for 2015, click here, or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.

The V-10 version of Audi's mid-engine R8 is a user-friendly, daily-drivable supercar that comes alive when called upon with a screaming motor, wild styling and amazing reflexes.

"Hey, Tony Stark!" yelled the guy from the car next to me at the stoplight. I was confused for a moment, before I remembered that the Audi R8 I was driving starred as the official movie conveyance of Iron Man's billionaire alter ego. It's not surprising to have people yell and gesture at... Read More
