Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The 2022 Audi R8 has front-, mid-, and rear-engine sports cars and supercars in its sites.

The mid-engine competition is closest and it includes the Lamborghini Huracán and Chevrolet Corvette.

The Huracán shares the R8’s platform and engine and has more of a performance focus, while the V-8-powered Corvette offers similar performance without as much elegance for a much more affordable price.

The rear-engine Porsche 911 is also a better performance value and it offers a wide variety of models for every sports car desire.

Front-engine rivals include the Mercedes-AMG GT, which is stylish and a great track car, and the Nissan GT-R, which offers amazing performance despite an aging design.
