Overview

What's New in the 2014 Audi R8?

The big news for the 2014 R8 is the debut of Audi's S Tronic dual-clutch automated manual transmission, which replaces the single-clutch, lurch-proneR Tronicgearbox. There are also some subtle styling tweaks, including new LED headlights and taillights. Inside, diamond-stitchedNappa leather is available.

Which R8 is the Best?

The V10 gets all the press, but the cheaper V8 sounds fantastic and is fast in its own right. We'd get the V8 Spyder with the sweet 6-speed manual for maximum visceral thrills.Find a Audi R8 for sale

Competition

2014 Audi R8 vs the competition

Chevrolet Corvette-- Starting at less than half the price of an R8, the C7 Corvette coupe and convertible should give some Audi shoppers pause with their astonishing bang for the buck.

Nissan GT-R-- Nissan's top-dog sports car has been getting more and more expensive, but it's also more capable than ever before. It remains a bargain compared to the R8.

Porsche 911 -- If anything, the 911 is even more livable on a daily basis than the R8, though it lacks the Audi's superhero handling and exotic engines.
