The 2018 Audi R8 lets you indulge in all the supercar excesses you can dream of, or simply cruise serenely. With its wonderfully quick steering and sharp suspension, the R8's reactions to driver inputs make it feel light and agile. In no time -- well, a bit more than three seconds, anyhow -- you'll be exceeding the speed limit, and to a ridiculous degree if you refuse to back off the gas. Tickle the throttle in traffic, and suddenly that tight knot of cars is a group of distant dots in the rearview mirror. Its V10 engine and 7-speed automatic work harmoniously, letting the engine lope at sane highway speeds, or scream when you unleash that 610-horsepower beast. The responsive drivetrain, balanced handling and tenacious grip make road courses a pleasure, and using launch control actually snaps your head back as you reach 60 mph in 3.2 seconds.

R8 V10 PLUS The standard R8 V10 puts out 540 horsepower, a lot by any measure. But if it's not enough, there's the R8 V10 Plus, with a 610-horsepower version of that engine. In addition, the Plus adds more performance modes in the Drive Select, sport exhaust, carbon-ceramic brakes and special racing seats. STEERING-WHEEL CONTROLS Buttons on steering wheels are nothing new, but the 2018 R8 takes it to extremes. In addition to cruise and audio controls, there's a bright-red start/stop button, Drive Select, sport exhaust, launch control and -- behind the rim -- paddles to manually shift the 7-speed automatic.

Audi interiors are always top-notch, and as the top-notch Audi, the R8 boasts a beautifully styled and intuitively laid-out cockpit. There's the 13-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, in case the V10's song somehow bores you. The supportive and comfortable seats are covered in Nappa leather, and the R8 now comes with Audi's MMI navigation system. The multi-function steering wheel incorporates many of the street/track functions, and Audi's excellent Virtual Cockpit replaces physical gauges with a high-res 12.3-inch display that shows information chosen by the driver. The R8 V10 Plus comes with racing-shell seats.

The 2018 Audi R8 doesn't have the immediate emotional impact of exotics from Italy or England. Yet its distinctive grille and headlights make it unmistakably Audi. This generation R8 uses almost 50 percent of its parts with the R8 LMS race car, yet it's visually similar to its predecessor. The low, wide stance and choice of hard or soft top remain, although Audi has reduced the profile of the signature "blade" on the side to a more subtle contrasting air-intake panel. Opt for V10 Plus over V10, and you get ceramic brakes, a sport exhaust, carbon-fiber rear diffuser and fixed spoiler.

Only a supercar could offer a 5.2-liter 540-horsepower V10 as the "base" engine, here connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic and quattro all-wheel drive. In addition, you get Audi's Drive Select variable drive modes, magnetic shocks and Audi's very cool and useful Virtual Cockpit in all R8 models. Audi's MMI infotainment interface also comes standard, as do Audi Connect and Google Earth-powered navigation. Even the side mirrors are high-tech: They're power-folding, power-adjustable, auto-dimming and heated. Also standard is a spoiler that rises depending on speed and 19.5-inch wheels. A 13-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system is standard on the R8 V10.

Some people don’t want a "base" anything, even if it's a supercar, so Audi provides the R8 V10 Plus. Its V10 engine puts out 610 horsepower, it boasts a top track speed of 205 mph, and it comes with all sort of racy equipment: racing-shell seats, ceramic brakes, sport exhaust, enhanced aerodynamics. You can also get Dynamic Steering, which offers a variable steering ratio. Drive Select in the V10 Plus adds a performance mode that optimizes the car's performance based on dry, wet and snowy conditions. Also available are diamond-stitched leather, contrast stitching, 20-inch wheels, and of course the drop-top R8 Spyder.

There are two versions of one V10 engine available for the 2018 Audi R8. Base -- if you can call them that -- R8 models get a 5.2-liter V10 with 540 horsepower; the R8 V10 Plus comes with a 610-horsepower version. Both are connected to a quick-shifting 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. Audi's quattro all-wheel-drive system is also standard across the board. Fuel economy isn't great, and the R8 is subject to a gas-guzzler tax, but relative to competitors its 22 mpg on the highway isn't too bad, is it? 5.2-liter V10 540 horsepower @ 7,800-8,700 rpm 398 lb-ft of torque @ 6,500 rpm EPA city/highway fuel economy: 14/22 mpg5.2-liter V10 610 horsepower @ 8,250-8,700 rpm 413 lb-ft of torque @ 6,500 rpm EPA city/highway fuel economy: 14/22 mpg

If you want to get into a 2018 Audi R8, you'll need about $ 166,000 to cover the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) and the $ 1,250 destination charge. The R8 V10 Spyder starts at about $ 178,300, and the R8 V10 Plus comes in at a hefty $ 195,600. That's all before adding options of course, and they add up quickly; it's not hard to push the price of the V10 Plus well over the $ 200,000 mark. That's a lot, but it's competitive with the likes of the Acura NSX ($ 160,000) and Porsche 911 Turbo S ($ 189,000). Resale value for exotic cars depends on a variety of factors, but generally they hold their value well. Check the Fair Purchase Price to find out what the Audi R8 goes for in your area, but as an exotic, don't expect a lot of wiggle room.

Audi R8 Overview and History

The mid-cycle refresh of the second-generation Audi R8 is not exactly in line with other Audi facelift, since the differences between the old and the new are rather extensive, both on the technical and the visual side. The Audi R8 V10 series got enriched in 2017 with the introduction of the RWS model which is the rear-wheel drive variant. In 2015, Audi brought a whole new R8 generation to light, building up on the success of the previous model.
Shower gels and generally beauty-product brands have a way of appealing to customers by thrusting desire through sensorial-related names and presentation of their offers. Olfactory sense-stroking balms and soothing cashmere-touch night cream-approaches are basically the most commonly used methods of conveying beauty and easy customer-access to deeply-rooted sensorial pampering, unless beauty is forged out of steel and thousands of accurately engineered parts.

Automobiles undoubtedly fall into the latter category, and what better way of striking at least one of the remaining three senses if not building an image of a mighty engine roar or purr of a loyal cylinder sextet cradled under the bonnet of an Audi car? Audi translates as 'listen' from latin and besides expressing an unanimously accepted passion of the motorist, that of listening to the engine as if it were a never before heard dissertation on mechanics blended with boisterous 'deux ex machina' comments and demonstrations, it also marks the birth of Audi following Horch's demise, the previous name of the company that can be traced back to 1899.

Its founder, August Horch was forced out of his own company in 1909 due to trademark infringements, 8 years after the first automobile had rolled out the gates of the plant in Zwickau, Germany. After having been dispensed of, Horch started his own company under the same name which led to a fair share of trouble that came to an end as soon as Horch called for a meeting at the apartment of Franz Fikentscher to discuss the matter and come up with a new name for the company. Franz's son who was studying latin at the time was the true deliverer of the name that would later became synonymous with luxury and quality. As 'Horch' means listen in Old German, the boy simply made a switched the name with its latin corespondent, 'audi', sparking enthusiasm into the 'audience' that quickly adopted the name.

Audi's start o the German market was high lighted by the appearance of 2.6 liter engine powered vehicles followed by a series of more powerful ones, such as 4.7 L and the gas-gulping 5.7 L. Having gotten to see his company grow wings, Horch left in in 1920, four years before Audi's first 6 cylinder model was built. In 19128, Audi was acquired By Jorgen Rasmussen, owner of rival company DKW.

A few years later, a merger between Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer occurred and thus, the Auto Union was formed in 1932. Those times called for a new badge and the four interlocked rings were born as a sign of unity and identity of the newly formed auto-conglomerate. Technological improvement became a top priority that first took shape during the Second World War when an armored car was produced for the German Army.

However, all the progress would soon be severely slowed down and even halted at times due to heavy bombings. Moreover, as as soon as the conflict had come to an end, Zwickau had been caught in the soviet occupation zone that would become The German Democratic Republic in 1949. Not only that the company's activity was in jeopardy but the Auto Union had also broken up and the Union had to be restarted n new grounds, in Ingolstadt, Bavaria.

Though sluggish at first, the newly Ingolstadt based factory would attract many of the former workers and the construction of two-stroke engines would be resumed in a way similar to that of Zwickau. By 1958, Daimler-Benz had already acquired a whopping 87% of the Auto Union but its investment quickly became property of Volkswagen, the company having bought the factory and  and the brands in 1964.

Soon after the change of ownership, two-stroke engines would be eliminated in favor of the more popular and more customer appealing four-stroke ones. DKW, the leading brand of the Union at the time failed as a brand despite of the changes  it had made and Volkswagen decided to resurrect Audi. The former DKW built model was rebranded as an Audi one and was the springboard for the make of later models such as the 60, 75 and 80.

After a second merger with the Stuttgart based car-producer NSU by 1970, Audi established itself as a reliable growing brand that would later break the German boundaries and expand to new markets, including the North American one where it encountered difficulties following the release of a biased report that portrayed the car as suffering form 'unintended acceleration'. This was caused by the close placement of the brake and acceleration pedals, right next to each other. Shortly after the report was released , an abrupt decline in sales was registered that was countered only years later with the 1996 release of the A4 model.

Joining a row of successful car-producers, Audi has also garnered acclaim on the racing track with several World Record holdings, including one for Top Speed Endurance. Audi is currently enjoying a privileged position and large market share and is predicted to reach the production threshold of 1 million units by the end of this year.
