The second generation Audi R8 was completely redesigned in 2017, but it still carries the original spirit the first generation exhibited as an everyday supercar. This new design once again shares a platform with the smaller Lamborghini as it did with the previous generation, but this new R8 is now a Huracán underneath, rather than a Gallardo. With that shift into the new generation of platforms, gone are the snarling V8 or old V10 and the beloved manual transmission. In their places, a lightning-fast DCT and new rev happy V10 provide power to the Audi that are also found in the Lamborghini Huracán. This R8 is a serioussupercar in its Sunday best, ready to take you and your passenger to the track or for a night out without so much as changing its shoes.
With the introduction of the 2017 redesign, the old 550hp V10 was completely replaced. This new 5.2l FSI engine spits out a whopping 602hp that it sends to a Dual Clutch Transmission where each gear is shifted either manually or by the car's computer for precise and nearly instant gear changes. While some may lament at the loss of the third pedal option, this R8 did not forget its primary goal of being a driver's car. As performance cars begin to outgrow human capabilities, cars like this R8 keep the majority of control at the hands of its driver and help them take advantage of its incredible potential, or easily drive in a comfortable fashion on a normal commute. You truly can have the track-oriented gearbox without sacrificing drivability, and this R8 proves it.
