Overview
Audi’s luscious R8 is beautiful to behold, easy to live with, and simply marvelous to drive—all the qualities you’d want in a sports car. The base engine is a 5.2-liter 540-hp V-10; the V10 Plus makes 610 hp. All-wheel drive is standard, as is a seven-speed automatic. The handsome interior features a 12.3-inch configurable display in lieu of traditional gauges; there is also 4G LTE connectivity and Wi-Fi hotspot capability. Only a coupe is offered for now; expect the Spyder version this summer.

Walkaround
Despite the almost countless man-years that Quattro GmbH’s engineers put into the new R8, its starring attraction remains the part that has been changed least, the V-10 engine. It’s worth the considerable price of admission in its own right, a high-revving masterpiece that stands as a glorious anachronism in a world where even Ferrari is downsizing and strapping on turbochargers. As in the Lamborghini, it has gained both port and direct injection and selective cylinder deactivation, but it is almost unchanged in character. Revs are what the V-10 does best, but it’s no anemic weakling at lower rpm. There’s enough torque to keep it tractable when asked to trundle, and it’s quiet and refined even at the sort of rapid highway cruising speeds we hope the Portuguese Polícia will indulge a visiting supercar in. In the hills, it takes a good while to build up to using the full allocation of revs; even upshifting at 6500 rpm it feels sports-car fast, with a good two grand still to go before reaching the limiter. Cross the 7000-rpm line and you’re in definite supercar territory, the V-10 practically popping a can of spinach as it snarls its way to redline. Under hard use it feels almost as exciting as the Huracán, yet it’s equally adept when asked to be a well-mannered boulevard cruiser or a polished autobahn-stormer.

Summery
The Audi is beyond quick with catlike reflexes, sharp, crisp steering, and brakes for days. Furthermore, the dynamic steering is far and away the best adjustable steering I’ve ever experienced on an Audi and nearly as good as what Lamborghini was able to do with the Aventador Superveloce SV. The 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus is in fact better to drive than its Italian twin, the Huracán. In terms of the R8’s closer competition, the Porsche Turbo S, McLaren 570S, and AMG GT S, well, we’ll just have to get them all together and see what’s what.
