Expert Quotes:

2012 Audi R8: 11/20 mpg (manual), 13/21 mpg (R-tronic)
EPA

2012 Audi R8 V-10: 12/19 mpg (manual), 13/19 mpg (R-tronic)
EPA




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.

Conclusion

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