The Audi R8 is as exciting as it's ever been. And though there are several updates that set this 2020 model apart from its forebear, the best thing about the R8 isn't what's changed, it's what hasn't.
Up front, the reworked fascia has a few more angles and air intakes than before, though the little fangs that flank the sides are nonfunctional, so they're really just styling for styling's sake. Around back, massive exhaust tips replace the more discreet design of last year's car, while the honeycomb air outlets now span the full width of the rump.
Some new colors are available inside and out, and there's a wireless phone charger just ahead of the gear selector on the center console. Audi's Virtual Cockpit tech still manages the infotainment system, and beautifully at that. Plus, with no central multimedia screen, the dashboard is blissfully uncluttered. Three small knobs house the climate control functions, but the princess in me thinks it's a little ridiculous the R8 doesn't come with dual-zone functionality.
Performance updates are similarly sparse. All R8s use Audi's utterly fantastic, naturally aspirated, 5.2-liter V10 engine, mounted amidships and connected to a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. The base car now produces 562 horsepower instead of 532, while torque remains the same at 406 pound-feet. In the hotter V10 Performance model -- formerly called V10 Plus -- that engine produces the same 602 hp and 413 lb-ft as before.
