Given the number of unique and one-off cars we have seen at Jay Leno’s Garage over the years, it feels kind of weird when he brings out a normal, production car to test, even if the car in question is a super car. This time Jay has got a 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus at his place, and as usual after a brief introduction he hits the streets of Burbank in it to see what it’s like.
One of the best things about Jay reviewing production cars is that besides all the jokes and the fun stuff, you also get some genuine consumer advice. So if you’ve been thinking about getting an Audi R8 V10 Plus, make sure you watch this first:
Just to recap, the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus is powered by a 5.2 FSI V10 engine which develops 610 horsepower. Mated to a 7-speed S tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel-drive, that power enables the R8 to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 205 mph or 330 km/h. Meanwhile, because the car is fairly lightweight and the engine is so efficient, the fuel consumption is pretty great for a car of this caliber and gives you a range of 450 km or 280 miles.
