When Audi released its all-new Audi R8, it was assumed that it would be still better than its last year’s model. As a sport car the 2018 Audi R8 looks stunning and that is the first thing you would notice about it. But certainly that is not all. The 2018 R8 remains to be equally phenomenal and an abundant display of powerful production that can be only built by a star house like Audi.
What’s new for 2018
According to the Bakersfield Audi, the 2018 version of the Audi R8 instantly earned a reputation for the significant upgrades it has received this time. The 2018 R8 now has a new Black Optic package that offers a 20-inch alloy wheels and a darker shade of interior that has a beautiful finish. This time a “Virtual Cockpit” has replaced the conventional one that is decked with a gorgeous screen placed in the front console.
For 2018, the R8 gets the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard equipment while the V10 models are given laser headlights.
The exterior of Audi R8 attracts people with its arrangement of full LED headlights and tail lamps. At the front the fascia looks overtly smart with the headlights that are placed just above the side air intakes and rightly below the front fenders. At the rear portion, the air flow through the vents shows the strength of an aerodynamic design. The V10 plus trim of R8 looks more stunning with its ceramic brakes, a fixed spoiler, a carbon-fiber rear diffuser and a sport exhaust.
Engine and Transmission
The R8 raves on the road with its V-10 engine perfectly tuned with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that altogether work to create a thrilling driving experience.
The all-wheel drive is made standard across all its trim levels to enhance the smoothness of the gear shifts while making the drive even more responsive. The R8 gives you an option to choose from its multiple driving modes, to get the right feeling at the right time. Try the Comfort, Dynamic, Auto, and the Individual as per your driving taste and habit.
Power and Performance
If we are taking about Audi, our expectation rises above the apparent cosmetic value. We look for all the good qualities under the same shade of an Audi, and the 2018 R8 didn’t disappoint anybody. The V10 engine knows its job well while the transmission responds immediately with the help of its 7-speed dual clutch.
As shared by the Audi Bakersfield experts, every Audi model has something or other to surprise you. The R8 isn’t an exception. The flexible Drive Mode Select system was the surprise that you would find while trying each and every mode on road.
With the current EPA rating the Fuel Economy estimates of the 2018 Audi R8 counts a 13 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. If that sounds less for a sports car the best parts of the R8 are enough to tempt the majority to label it as their dream car for sure.
