2020 Audi R8 vs. Its Competition

2020 Audi R8 V10 RWD
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2020 Audi R8 supercar competes against others of its ilk, and we’re jealous of all the above.

The Porsche 911 was our colleagues at Motor Authority’s pick for Best Car To Buy 2020 thanks to its livability and everyday usability.

It’s wonderful.

Chevy’s new Corvette is mid-engine too—and about one-third of the price of the R8.

The two-door AMG GT is rarefied air among supercars, hotter versions are even more extreme.

The Nissan GT-R is relatively aged among the crowd but its performance never gets old and a hardcore Nismo version is just as entertaining.
