Expert Quotes:

2011 Audi R8: 11/20 mpg (manual), 13/21 mpg (R-tronic)

2011 Audi R8 V-10: 12/19 mpg (manual), 13/19 mpg (R-tronic)

You would expect a screamingly quick, near-exotic sports car to turn in poor fuel economy, and the 2011 Audi R8 lives up to the advance billing.

Somewhat strangely, the base V-8-powered, manual-transmission R8 coupe and Spyder convertible get the worst EPA ratings of the lineup. They're tagged at 11/20 mpg. Adding the automated-manual R-tronic transmission option to this engine raises gas mileage to the best of the lineup, at 13/21 mpg.

The R8 V-10 coupe and Spyder aren't far off the V-8 mark, either. The manual earns an EPA rating of 12/19 mpg; with the R-tronic, it's rated at 13/19 mpg.

Audi has teased the concept-car circuit with a V-12 turbodiesel R8, but an actual production run of oil-burner sportscars isn't expected.


The 2011 Audi R8's gas mileage could be termed dismal--if it weren't balanced against its stupendous performance.

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.
