5 reasons to buy the 2020 Audi R8

1. It’s super fast 

If you dream of flying fighter jets or space rockets, you’ll enjoy being behind the wheel of the 2020 Audi R8. With the standard 562-hp 5.2L V10 engine, the 2020 R8 accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, and reaches a top speed of over 200 miles an hour. Even if you’re not pushing the car to its limit during daily driving, you’ll have power that’s intoxicating.  

2. Luxury interior 

The main draw for any supercar is its engine. And yet, you want to be comfortable as you enjoy the finer things. That’s easy in the 2020 Audi R8, thanks to luxury details like standard leather heated sports seats and a 13-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.  

3. Performance features 

To make the most of the power that the Audi R8 engine delivers, you’ll have a host of performance features. All-wheel drive is standard, as is a power rear spoiler that deploys automatically, and adaptive dampers. The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission transitions through the gears seamlessly, so you can make the most of every bit of power.  

4. Sport trim 

If you really want to try your skills on the track, choose the Performance trim on the 2020 Audi R8. The 5.2L engine delivers 40 extra horsepower on this trim, and the car comes standard with sports suspension, sports steering, and a sports suspension. Standard ceramic brakes ensure that you can stop quickly, even after reaching top speeds.  

5. Convertible option 

Convertibles bring to mind lazy vacation days, but the 2020 R8 manages to pair an available convertible body with the power of a supercar. The convertible styling, which Audi calls Spyder, is available on both trims. The soft top goes down with the push of a button. In fact, you don’t even need to stop: the top will move up or down at speeds of 31 mph or less.
