2019 Audi R8

We certainly wouldn’t call Audi’s R8 the flashiest of supercars, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, its sleek lines and toned-down style are a part of what makes it one of our all-time favorites — rather than being outwardly boastful, it lets the engine do the talking. Still, we’re not sad to see that the 2019 edition has gotten some updates and upgrades.

Boasting a silhouette that’s mostly the same as it’s always been, there are a few changes to the overall facade and as many as 50% of the vehicle’s parts are now shared with the carmaker’s new racing vehicles. For instance, it now has a wider grille with a beautiful honeycomb mesh across it, as well as a more-pronounced front splitter and three slats between the grille and the hood (a nod to the original Quattro). That honeycomb mesh can also now be found across the tail end of the car, below a three-piece engine cover available in either plastic or carbon fiber. What’s really exciting, however, is that the naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 under the hood of the base model now boasts 562 horsepower and 406 ft-lb of torque (that’s up 30 each from previous iterations). Audi also added new Dry, Wet, and Snow driving modes, touches of Alcantara leather throughout the interior, and much more. The 2019 R8 will hit dealerships early next year.
