Can The New Audi R8 V10 Plus Finally Defeat The Porsche 911?

Supercar

Has Audi ruined the supercar recipe?

The last iteration of the Audi R8 was one heck of a supercar and could even be used everyday, which is something that no other high-performance car on the road can boast besides the Porsche 911 lineup. With the new R8, Audi has decided to cut out the old R8’s incredible 4.2-liter V8 and go onward with the Lamborghini Huracan’s 5.2-liter that produces 602 hp. That’s more than enough power to keep up with its more exotic Italian twin, but is it enough to make you forget about the last model?

On another, more somber note this may be the last naturally-aspirated supercar we see from Audi. So does it have what it takes to become an icon?
