Neither Audi nor the EPA have released gas mileage figures for the 2014 Audi R8. With slightly re-tuned engines and a new variant in the form of the V10 Plus, the figures may not be identical to last year's, but they should be close.
That means the R8's fuel economy will definitely not impress. Not quite dismal, but not far from it, the R8 ranged from 12/19 mpg to 13/21 mpg city/highway in 2012.
Opting for the new S Tronic dual-clutch transmission should gain about 1 mpg over the alternative six-speed manual gearbox, but that still leaves the R8 trailing significantly behind greener high-performance cars like the Chevrolet Corvette.
The 2014 Audi R8 isn't the most efficient of cars--or even of supercars--but the payoff is its serious performance capabilities.
