Audi had one of the toughest jobs in the world when it came to designing the second generation R8. The first model was incredibly popular with over 55,000 sold worldwide, so they decided to play it safe with the styling – but then in 2019 they added an extra dose of aggression with a new front end that is full of angles, fins and serious presence.
We think it looks fantastic – somehow it appears faster and hungrier, like it wants to devour the road ahead of it and any cars it comes across.
With more advanced chassis technology, the new R8 is around 80 kg lighter than the old model and power is up too. There's the incredible quattro AWD system to give you traction in all weather conditions and it looks amazing with the added spoilers and gorgeous 20-inch alloy wheels.
The 5.2 litre V10 engine is a further reworked version of the old powerplant, but now produces 612bhp and 580Nm of torque giving incredible performance. 0-62 mph is dealt with in just 3.1 seconds on the way to the 206 mph top speed.
The interior is still a masterclass in understated style and fantastic ergonomics too.
