Audi R8 vs BMW M8

Everyone wants to drive around in a vehicle they believe they can be proud of. The problem comes in figuring out which vehicle fits those needs, and doesn't force you into making any big compromises. That's why, at Audi Gainesville, we want to help lead you in the right direction. We're taking a look at the Audi R8 and the BMW M8 to help figure out which of these vehicles you should be adding into your life. The Audi R8 makes sure you have fun interior upgrades, impressive performance, a comfortable interior, a new front-end, Audi's Virtual Cockpit, and even standard all-wheel drive. The BMW M8 is all-new in the 2020 model year, bringing you a decent-size trunk, performance capabilities, and great acceleration. Keep reading down below to find out which car you should drive home in.

2020 Audi R8 Power & Handling

With the Audi R8, you'll be able to find one engine in two different flavors. No matter what, you'll be getting all-wheel drive, which is especially important in terms of getting the traction you need. The base engine configuration is a 5.2-liter V10, which can output around 406 pound-feet of torque and up to 562 horsepower. This same engine, when you get it with the Performance model, offers up to 413 pound-feet of torque and around 602 horsepower. Both of these different configurations work with a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission. As you can tell, power and traction are no problem for the Audi R8. This is a car that will give you that engine noise you've been looking for.

2020 BMW M8 Power & Handling

The BMW comes in with one engine that offers two different amounts of power. This engine is a turbocharged 4.4-liter V8, which offers around 553 pound-feet of torque and 600 horsepower. It's important to note that this is just a V8 engine, unlike the V10 that is offered with the Audi R8. The other configuration can produce around 625 horsepower. All four wheels are powered, and each configuration gets an eight-speed automatic transmission.
