Audi May Have Accidentally Made The New R8 Better Than The Lamborghini Huracan

Review

Can Audi's second-generation supercar actually improve on the original?

The original Audi R8 was a revolution, a supercar that was practical and not ridiculously expensive. However, the 4.2-liter V8 wasn't the most powerful supercar engine. That all changed when Audi released the 5.2-liter V10 version. Now, the new R8 packs more power than ever in its V10 engine, 602 horses. What's more, the R8 Plus has the same amount of power as its big brother, the Lamborghini Hurracan. However, it actually has more room inside than the more expensive Lamborghini.

The R8 Plus used to be a bit boring compared to other supercars, but Audi has seemingly added a bit more Italian flare into the new R8. The R8 is certainly fast, but can it match the track time of the Hurracan? You'll have to watch to find out.
