2014 Audi R8 V10 | Review | Test Drive | Audi R8 | Continental Audi
For 2014, the R8 V-10 gains a new Plus model. Not to be confused with the
ladies in a Lane Bryant ad, Plus here refers to the extra 25 horsepower that Audi coaxed
from the 5.2-liter V-10. Basically, it's the Lamborghini-grade unit found
in the Gallardo LP560-4. Firmer springs and dampers, inspired by the
rarely-seen-outside-captivity R8 GT, are seriously stiff, bordering on
annoyingly bouncy. We'd much rather live with the standard R8's supple
But the biggest change is the newly available seven-speed dual-clutch
automatic called S tronic. A $7800 option on all R8s, it replaces the
clunky automated-manual transmission known as the R tronic. With the S,
part-throttle upshifts are free of any twitchiness, giving the auto R8 the
manners to live in traffic. For maximum acceleration, the S tronic offers
launch control that holds the engine at 4500 rpm before engaging the
first-gear clutch. The R8's owner's manual suggests finding a clear, empty
road before using launch control, as it might cause unwanted attention.
Good advice. Accelerating from zero to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds with the
quarter-mile passing in 11.4 seconds at 126 mph certainly got our
attention. That's two-tenths quicker to 60 and in the quarter than the
525-hp R8 R tronic we previously tested.

2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
