2014 Audi R8 V10 Plus

Refreshed Icon Is An Alpine Star When it comes to something as inherently outrageous as the supercar segment, you might think that it would never really need shaking up. But that's not the case – every once in a while, you have to have something that reorders the breed – a goalpost mover like the McLaren F1 or a Bugatti Veyron. Or you need to have challengers to the establishment on other fronts, be it styling or powertrain technology. Sometimes, just the presence of a new marque is enough of a disruptor to put everyone on guard. And that's what exactly happened with the... Read More

    Paris: Audi R8 LMX illuminates the City of Light with lasers
    1412258400

    Hard as it may seem to believe, the Audi R8 has been around for the better part of a decade. But does that make us love it any less? Hardly, especially not when Audi keeps rolling out ever-more enticing versions like the one you see here. Debuting at the Paris Motor Show, the new Audi R8 LMX is the most powerful version of the supercar we've seen yet, ...

    Video: Facelifted Audi R8 recorded on the 'Ring
    1340290680

    The facelifted 2013 Audi R8 was out on public roads and, naturally, videotaped. Sheathed in camo again after having been at it totally naked not long before, there is less to visualize, but you can at least see – and, just as importantly, hear – it in action. Make sure to watch the whole thing: the special feature at the end of this video is a ...

    Beijing: CH Auto's Lithia EV strikes an Audi-like profile in China
    1335450660

    There's a certain German sports car that the designers at CH Auto might have been dreaming about before they penned the Lithia. We don't think this kind of inspiration is anywhere near criminal, though, and before anyone broaches the topic of Chinese design, they should know that the CH Auto's design chief is an ex-General Motors man: Dan Darancou, who ...

    Frankfurt: Audi shows off near-production R8 e-tron prototype
    1316006460

    When Audi unveiled the original e-tron Concept at the last Frankfurt Motor Show in 2009, a production version seemed to be nothing more than a glimmer in the very distant future. Two years later, it appears that the automaker has made plenty of progress in bringing an electric-powered R8 into the world. Yesterday in Frankfurt, Audi revealed a new R8 ...

    Is this the face of the next Audi R8?
    1314122460

    It may be hard to believe, but the Audi R8 has already been on the market for five years. And while it was cutting edge then and is still eminently fresh and desirable by any account, sooner or later it's going to need a bit of a touch-up up to keep ahead of the competition. And this could be our first look at what to expect. Apparently leaked out ...

    It's onwards and upwards at a rapid pace over at Audi, which after releasing pricing and availability for the hard-core R8 GT coupe has now reportedly confirmed plans for an open-top version. Destined to be previewed at Le Mans in June before its proper unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the R8 GT Spyder has been teased with these ...

    Geneva 2011: Polished MTM R8 Biturbo is a blinding twin-turbo spacecraft
    1299103080

    The hand-polished MTM Audi R8 V10 BiTurbo has come out from its shell with its little brother, the MTM Audi TTRS, in Geneva today. We said previously this thing would be visible from space, and it looks like we were right. The naked polished aluminum body work took nearly 700 man hours to get looking just so, and we gotta say, it was worth it. The MTM ...

    Geneva 2011: ABT R8 GTS begs for attention
    1299070860

    Audi tuner ABT Sportline has released its latest take on Ingolstadt's 2011 lineup in the form of the R8 GTS, a worked-over version of Audi's R8 5.2 FSI V10 Cabrio. In ABT guise, the V10 has been boosted to 620 horsepower – a 95-hp gain over the stock mill. To accentuate the power just a little more, ABT has gotten liberal with the carbon fiber and ...

    There's a strong possibility that German tuning house MTM's booth at the Geneva Motor Show will be visibile from space. The boys from Wettstetten are bringing their paint-free polished-aluminum Audi R8 BiTurbo to Hall 5 at Geneva. The company is mum on exactly how they removed all that paint, but they do allow that it took 700 hours of polishing to get ...

    Paris 2010: 2011 Audi R8 GT is powerful, lightweight gorgeousness
    1285959600

    In terms of supercar hotness, the Audi R8 is indeed something special. And though we have our disagreements about Audi's R-Tronic manu-matic transmission, the R8 never ceases to impress us with its purely awesome style and dynamics. For this year's Paris Motor Show, Audi brought out its limited-production R8 GT. Held to only 333 units retailing for ...

    Audi Quattro concept celebrates 30th anniversary of original

    We've been speculating, applying the magnifying glass to spy shots and just plain wishing that the rumors were true. They are – Audi is set to debut the Quattro concept car at the Paris Motor Show in celebration of its famous all-wheel-drive system's 30th anniversary. Drawing its inspiration from the original 1980 Audi Ur-Quattro and using some ...

    Within the next two years, Audi plans to have five different variants of the R8 in production: V8- and V10-powered coupes and convertibles, and one harder-core variant tuned to play as well on the track as it does on the road. This newest, lightweight model – likely carrying either a ClubSport (CS) or GT badge – has been undergoing testing in ...

    Geneva 2010: Abt R8 GTR is full of V10, carbon fiber goodness
    1267664220

    We got our first peek at Abt's R8 GTR late last year, but like with many cars, it was a whole different experience to see it in person. To say carbon fiber has been used liberally is an understatement, as the entire car is clothed in the lightweight material. The look suits the R8, and Abt has managed to give the car a more aggressive look without going ...

    Before World War II there were several high-end European luxury marquees that sadly didn't survive long past the Great Depression. One of these makes was Hispano-Suiza, and the car world was worse off as a result. Check out the V12-engined Hispason-Suizas built in the 1930s if you're a non-believer. But guess what? As we mentioned previously, Hispano ...

    The V10-powered Audi R8 5.2 FSI is a fantastic car, whether in coupe or convertible form. Heck, it's even great in brown, as proven by the pair of cars on the show floor. It might not be our first color choice for the German supercar, although it was a nice change from the usual white, silver, and gray cars that usually are strewn about the Audi stand. ...

    We weren't exactly electrified by Audi's e-tron concept when it debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in blazing red paint this past September, but we did like the color. So, when the e-tron reappeared at the LA Auto Show this week wearing orange... bummer. As a refresh, the e-tron concept uses four electric motors with a combined output of 313 ...

    This isn't the first time we've seen the drop-top Audi R8 Spyder. Images were leaked in early September, and we were there in Frankfurt for its official debut. That said, its unveiling at the LA Auto Show was less than climactic... other than the fact the Spyder was sporting a flashy bright-red bodywork. New hue aside, the new convertible variant is a ...
