Even in 2020, the entire automotive industry seemed too hung up on building the best EVs, some for the fastest 0-60 and others to boast about range. The excitement that was once associated with loud, powerful engines became ever so rare, and real car enthusiasts started to yearn for it. Audi was listening, and when they decided to release their halo car with a screaming V10, the car world had found its savior. Unlike many cars here that usually get a quick introduction, we believe that the Audi R8 doesn't need one, so let's jump into what makes the R8, more specifically, this R8 performance spec that happens to be on sale, known as the supercar that you can live with every day.
Jumping into the visual aspects of the 2020 Audi R8 V10 performance, it's immediately noticeable that the facelift given that year was intended to make the vehicle more boisterous and aggressive, more suited to the character of the engine. This Daytona Gray Matte exterior, an Audi exclusive reported to be 1 of 1 in this color, gives the vehicle a velvety finish, a welcoming change from the more conventional gloss finish. It blends well with the carbon fiber accents around the car and helps the blacked-out Audi rings and badges and the black soft-top stand out more. In the topic of standing out, the car sits on a set of 20-inch double-spoke dynamic design wheels milled from a solid block of aluminum with a golden hue for added distinctiveness. As for the cabin, inhabitants will be nestled upon diamond-quilted black leather seats that sport Express Red stitching. For those of us who enjoy the nostalgic feeling of buttons and knobs integrated into modern interior systems, the steering wheel will be a welcoming place for your hands, especially with the availability of dynamic steering. Along with a luxurious Bang & Olufsen sound system, you will also find subtle carbon fiber accents within the interior. The 2020 Audi R8 V10 Spyder Performance is a supercar, after all.
As for the true hero behind all of the styling and flash, it is a truly spectacular piece of machinery, rare in these times but extraordinary, to say the least. To drive a 2020 Audi R8 V10 Spyder Performance is to have a naturally aspirated 5.2L V10 screaming just inches behind your ears. To really relish this car is to hear the engine roar all the way up to 8500rpm as the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission receives over 600 horses worth of power, before dividing the power perfectly to all four wheels via the legendary Audi Quattro system.
