Posh interior is loaded with electronics and bathed in leather and Alcantara
Kelley Blue Book



The Audi R8 is richly outfitted, whether it's powered by a V-8 or a V-10, whether it's a coupe or a Spyder.

Every R8 comes with standard leather and Alcantara seats; power windows, locks and mirrors; keyless entry; automatic climate control; an audio system with a music interface for portable players, two SD slots for music storage, and Sirius satellite radio; Bluetooth with a seatbelt-mounted microphone; and a USB port.

On the V-8 coupes and convertibles, there are option packages for a navigation system; rear parking sensors and a rearview camera; more extensive leather upholstery; carbon-ceramic brakes; different 19-inch wheels; a Bang & Olufsen sound system, which comes highly recommended by our editors; and carbon-fiber trim on the R8's unique side-blade styling elements and inside.

V-10 cars get most of those features as standard equipment. Major options on these two models are limited to the all-leather upholstery; wheels; carbon-fiber trim; and the carbon-ceramic brakes.

The 5.2 Spyder has a power-operated top that's made of fabric for light weight. Unfortunately, the lovely view of the engine bay goes away to make room for the folding top stack.

 

Conclusion

Audi's MMI controller takes a while to learn, but the R8's fantastic Bang & Olufsen audio system and integrated music features make those lessons worthwhile.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
