There are plenty of sports cars out there to choose from. Generally they are coupe models with two racing seats and plenty of performance. Audi has rolled out several coupe models in the past, but they aren’t always part of its lineups.
That’s changing for the 2021 model year. The automaker is releasing a new rear-wheel-drive R8 coupe and a convertible (aka, spyder) model. While the R8s have previously been available in limited runs, the new models will now become a permanent part of Audi’s repertoire.
So Fresh, So Clean
The Audi R8 lineup originated back in 2006. Since then, it has become one of the most popular coupe models on the market and it is perfect for daily driving. Its performance has also regularly improved over the years and it has shed the very rounded style it first arrived with. That being said, the R8 has retained its iconic style and is still instantly recognizable.
The 2021 model features tremendous weight savings over the carmaker’s quattro all-wheel-drive versions. That means the R8s can compete with the higher-end models.
These cars feature a 532-horsepower V10 engine that rockets you from 0-60 in just 3.6 seconds. That’s the sort of acceleration that leaves you itching to get back in the driver’s seat time and time again. If you want even more power, the performance trim delivers a roaring 602-hp.
In terms of style, this car features sleek lines and subtle curves that scream aerodynamics. Whether you choose to opt for the traditional coup or the sypder model, the R8 will cut through the wind with ease.
Keep in mind that, despite this car’s superstar specs, it is a pleasure to drive on the road. That’s particularly thanks to its adaptive suspension dampers that keep you and your passengers comfortable. If you’re in the market for a supercar in 2021 (or just like to dream) don’t ignore the Audi R8. Learn more
