The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Audi R8 is a mid-engine superhero in a suit and tie. Its performance is blinding, even compared to high-dollar exotics. Bigger, bulkier, bawdier: The 2019 BMW 8-Series bucks all Bavaria’s typical instincts and revels in its life choices.
