Profile

Introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the second generation R8 may look quite familiar but is in fact a huge step forward over the outgoing model. Available from launch in three distinct versions (std V10; 605bhp 'V10 Plus' and fully electric 'eTron'), the R8 Shares a platform with its VW Group stablemate the Lamborghini Huracan. A new 7-speed dual clutch transmission is fitted along with a revised 4WD system that gives astounding grip. Performance is equally amazing. 0-60mph disappears in just 3 seconds, (almost on a par with the Huracan), with a 205mph maximum speed.

The new R8 is certainly in the same ball park as it's illustrious rivals from Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche, and at 126,000 for the 605bhp 'Plus', it is an absolute bargain compared to well over 200k for the 488 and Huracan.
