2022 Audi R8 vs the competition
2021 Chevrolet Corvette – Though the latest, mid-engined C8 Corvette has not yet achieved supercar status, it is close and at half the price of an Audi R8, it is worth considering.
2021 Lamborghini Huracan – For sheer visual drama, it’s hard to beat the Huracan. And with the same mighty V-10 powertrain as the R8, what’s not to like, except the price.
2021 Porsche 911 Turbo – There’s no ignoring this 911 model, which blends brilliant performance and handling, AWD capability and a 2 plus 2 cockpit practicality.
Used Porsche 911 – You can pick up a nicely equipped used 911 with AWD and a powerful engine for less than the base R8.
