Launched in 2006, the R8 marked Audi’s first entry in the supercar market. Offered in both coupe and roadster configurations, the R8 sports a mid-engine, two-seat layout and comes with two different drivetrains. It can be had with either a 4.2-liter V-8 or a 5.2-liter V-10, both mated to either manual or automatic transmission and the company’s trademark quattro all-wheel-drive system. Based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform, the first-gen R8 received numerous updates throughout its life-cycle, but it has grown a little long in the tooth. As a result, Audi is using the Huracan’s platform to develop a second-gen model for 2016. Although they are already testing a redesigned version, the Germans haven’t given up on the current R8 just yet, launching a limited-edition Competition model for 2015.
