Just two versions of the R8 are currently on offer, each with slightly different features and ways of getting down the road. The cheapest version is called the R8 V10 RWD and sends its power to the rear axle via the same seven-speed dual-clutcher found in the AWD Performance model. Its output is rated at 532 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque, enough for a top speed of 201 mph. With a greater focus on comfort, this model boasts adaptive dampers instead of a fixed setup that may feel harsher. The R8 Performance removes the cosseting suspension system in favor of adding power and grip. Power here jumps to 602 hp with torque rated at 413 lb-ft. Whichever you choose, both are visceral accelerators yet capable daily drivers.
