Audi R8 V10 review: see how quick it really is...

ავტომობილები & ტრანსპორტი

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
Mat’s got his hands on the Audi R8 V10 Performance!
It’s the most powerful version of the Audi R8 you can buy, and we have to say, it’s an absolute monster! With a 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 powering all four wheels, it’ll deliver 620hp and 580Nm, while also hitting 60mph in a claimed 3.1 seconds!
But of course, if this isn’t your first carwow review, then you’ll know that the claimed 60mph times aren’t always 100% correct. So what do you think - will Mat be able to hit it in under 3.1 seconds? Or will the winter roads prove to be his downfall?
You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

    I test drove both the Huracan and R8. The Huracan feels more connected and tight even a used one compared to a new R8 V10 Performance. I chose the Huracan at the end.

    Hi there! Why don't you all car-tubers start saving the siberiean tigers? Use your communication platforms and start asking the important question: Why doesn't we pursue climate neutrality from cars by using fossil-free renewable fuels instead of batteries?? Why can we pursue both ways at the same time? All roads leads to Rome. That would save the day and keep the car performance at its best, both for power and range/distance. Electric cars just doesn't keep up. When shall we say the truth: Elon Musk is naked. Neihter does the e-car emperor saves siberian tigers either. ;--)

    I love that you can't rev the engine when standing still, put that limiter in every car. I understand if you are around 20, but come on Mat 😁 I'm going to bed early because i work at night. And in summer time in Sweden there is always youngsters reving their fucking Volvo 740 in the neighborhood, from time to time. Just when i was falling asleep they manage to show up. I have to admit that if i knew it was an R8 outside my house, and not a lousy Volvo, i probably would get up and have a look. 😅
