2012 Audi R8 Fuel Economy

5.0
Fuel Economy
As much as it offers in terms of style, luxury, quality, and performance, the Audi R8's one downfall is its gas mileage. It's not quite dismal, but it's not far from it.

The standard V-8 coupe and spyder score just 11/20 mpg with the manual, and 13/21 mpg with the R-tronic automatic. Upgrading to the V-10 dents the figures to just 12/19 mpg with the manual and 13/19 with the R-tronic.

The EPA hasn't yet reported the limited-edition R8 GT's fuel economy figures.

The 2012 Audi R8 won't win any awards from the Sierra Club, but it trades that efficiency for serious performance.
