It may not be surprising that the new Audi R8 V10 Performance is the fastest in the group, but you may be disconcerted by the progress you've made. Since its debut in 2006, the Audi R8 has become a much more targeted machine. He discarded the V8 from a sedan for a big V10 and abandoned the self-agitating gearbox for a fast pallet shifter. Speed is his ultimate goal.
Carwow wanted to know how much a new V10 Performance is faster than the old first-generation R8 V8 with a secure manual. While you're there, you can just as easily add a pair of renovated first-generation models.
These first manual V8 R8s are one of my favorite since the beginning. In 2006, these first R8s could be space ships as well, they were so different from anything on the road. The good appearance agro mixes well with the soft body lines and a carbon "blade" hitting behind the door. Fucking good car, that. And the shifter is so good. It's not the fastest, but it's the one I bring back from this particular dance.
The first-generation model has no carbon ceramic brakes, no V10 power, no fast double-clutch gear changes, and huge, wide tire grip. It does not matter, it's still the most fun to drive because it requires the driver's involvement to make it work properly. It's a real pleasure to take a sharp turn or move up a gear.
I find it hilarious that "the slowest" in this battle runs another quarter mile.
