Audi R8 V10 review: see how quick it really is...

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
Mat’s got his hands on the Audi R8 V10 Performance!
It’s the most powerful version of the Audi R8 you can buy, and we have to say, it’s an absolute monster! With a 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 powering all four wheels, it’ll deliver 620hp and 580Nm, while also hitting 60mph in a claimed 3.1 seconds!
But of course, if this isn’t your first carwow review, then you’ll know that the claimed 60mph times aren’t always 100% correct. So what do you think - will Mat be able to hit it in under 3.1 seconds? Or will the winter roads prove to be his downfall?
You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

  • I would want the Huracan for looks. However, the moment your Huracan won't start, you will wish you bought an R8, as Audi has probably 25 dealers for every 1 Lamborghini dealer. So I win a 2021 Huracan tomorrow, I'm trading it in on a 2019 R8 Performance with like 4K miles. I'll let someone else take the massive depreciation, and then I'll daily drive that R8 for years.

  • Don't get me wrong, the R8 is arguably a better car, and I love it. More space, more practical, cheaper, well built, essentially the same car, more useful display etc etc. But I'd rather have the Lambo.
