2023 Audi R8 V10 GT RWD: For a mass-market car manufacturer like Audi, special, halo models must be produced in limited quantities in order for their values to remain stable. In comparison to Lamborghini, which appears to be releasing Huracan V10 versions with alarming regularity in the run-up to ditching the V10, the Audi R8 GT’s limited run makes it far more desirable. Especially given the price difference between a regular R8 with rear-wheel drive and this one.
The 2023 Audi R8 marks the end of the line for the glorious naturally aspirated 10-cylinder supercar, and it will almost certainly be marked by a limited-edition model. Audi recently announced updates for nearly all of its 2023 models, but oddly left out the R8 (and a few other models), offering only a vague promise to follow up with separate statements.
However, Audi has informed us that the gas-powered V10 will be phased out. Executives have been foreshadowing the end of the current R8 for several years, as the brand moves purposefully toward an all-electric future. The R8’s successor, whatever its final name, is expected within the next two to three years and will be entirely electric.
Specification, 2023 Audi R8 V10 GT RWD
Rumors circulated that the outgoing R8 could be given a hybrid V8, possibly to serve as a bridge to a full EV. With a successor on the horizon, that seems unlikely. A special-edition R8 could be badged as a GT model or a RS, the current designation reserved for Audi’s top performers, for its final outing in 2023. It could produce at least 630 horsepower, the same as the engine found in the Lamborghini Huracan (the current R8 produces 602 hp), with an exterior adorned with carbon-fiber air ducts, winglets, and spoilers.
The Audi R8 V10 Performance delivers the performance one would expect from a high-end sports car. The acceleration is incredible, reaching 60 mph in only 3.0 seconds. The handling is also solid, and the brakes are consistent and dependable.
What’s surprising is how simple it is to explore its incredible capabilities and how enjoyable it is to drive when you’re not using the hammer. Aside from power, braking, and grip, the R8’s steering adds significantly to the overall experience, with appropriate effort at low and high speeds, quick responses, and a good amount of feedback.
The EPA estimates combined fuel economy at 15 mpg. On our 115-mile mixed driving evaluation route, we averaged 19.9 mpg. That’s a good sign, but driving efficiently necessitates extreme caution (our overall average was a more dismal 13.3 mpg). Other sports cars are more fuel-efficient.
