The Chevrolet Corvette and the Audi R8 are two of the most popular sports cars on the market right now. They look good and drive well. You might be thinking about both.
To compare them well, you need to know what they have in common, what their strengths are, and what makes them different. With this information, you’ll be better able to figure out which vehicle fits your style, how you want it to perform, and your way of life.
No matter which one you choose, both sports cars look great, are fast, and perform better than anything else on the market.
Comfort and Utility
There are the same number of seats in both the Corvette and the Audi R8. Drivers will like that the Corvette has more room for their legs. With more headroom, the Corvette also feels like it has more space.
The Corvette’s trunk is bigger than the Audi R8’s, making it better for everyday tasks and storage. The Audi R8 is easy to drive in city traffic because it is narrower than most cars. It is also shorter than the Corvette, which may make it easier to get into and out of tight parking spaces.
This makes the car easier to use every day, which can help you enjoy it more.
Both cars get about the same amount of miles per gallon. In the city, the Audi R8 gets 14 mpg, and on the highway, it gets 22 mpg. In the city, the Corvette gets 13–16 mpg, and on the highway, it gets 19–25 mpg. Most likely, these numbers won’t make a big difference in choosing between these two cars.
The most important question to ask about a sports car is, “How much power does it have?” The engine in the Audi R8 is one of the most powerful in a standard vehicle. It has 518 horsepower.
The power and torque of a 5-liter engine make a sports car that stands out. It has a lot of power and speed, and its top speed is around 200 miles per hour. The Audi R8 also has a fast acceleration. It can go from 0 to 125 mph in about 8 seconds.
The Corvette is just as impressive, if not more so. The supercharged 6.2-liter engine gives it power. It has about 640 horsepower as well. This means that the Corvette is not only faster than the Audi, but it also starts moving faster.
The plastic frame of the Corvette is one thing that helps it move quickly. Since it is much lighter than similar models with a metal frame, there isn’t as much weight to move. This means that the engine’s power can be used to go faster.
The Corvette has a suggested retail price (MSRP) of $55,900–$125,400. The suggested retail price (MSRP) for an Audi R8 is between $138,700 and $208,100. People who want to get the most out of their money on a powerful sports car will be interested in the price.
It has also been said that the Corvette will have lower insurance rates than the Audi, but none of the experts have come up with a good reason for this.
Even though there are a lot of things to think about when comparing two high-performance sports cars, each buyer or fan will have their own personal opinion to add to the data. With extras, the Audi R8 makes up for some flaws that people think it has.
It has a stronger design than the Corvette. A shelf behind the seats can also give you more room for your things. We still don’t know if these changes will be enough to change how people feel about other parts of the car.
The Audi R8 will be slower and feel less powerful than the Corvette because it has less torque and horsepower. The price tags will also give people something to think about. At the end of the day, these are two sports cars with a lot of power that get people’s attention.
Previous 2016 Model Comparisons
We put the new generation of the Audi R8 up against the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette, which is the best sports car in America.
Let’s talk about models first. The American brand beats the Audi R8 when it comes to variety. The Chevrolet Corvette comes in five different models: the Convertible Z06, the Coupe Z06, the Stingray Convertible, the Stingray Convertible Z51, the Stingray Coupe, and the Stingray Coupe Z51. All of these models also come in 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT versions.
The R8 also comes in five different versions: the 4.2 FSI Quattro, the 5.2 FSI Quattro, the 5.2 V10 Plus Quattro, the Spyder 4.2 FSI Quattro, and the Spyder 5.2 FSI Quattro.
The 2016 R8 and 2016 Corvette are not too different from each other. They both have powerful engines and great performance, which made the two brands famous.
When it comes to speed and acceleration, the Corvette Stingray can do some crazy things. With its 455-horsepower V-8 engine, the eight-speed automatic Stingray can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. And as amazing as that sounds, the Z06 model can still beat those numbers on the road, going from 0 to 60 in just 3.3 seconds with the manual transmission.
The R8 models can keep up with the Corvette when it comes to speed, and the V10 Plus R8 has better times than the Z06. The R8 can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds in the regular V10 models, but the V10 Plus model, which has 610 horsepower, can do it in just 3.1 seconds.
With a time of 11.2 seconds in a quarter-mile race, the R8 also wins. The Corvette Z06 Convertible took 11.3 seconds to finish a quarter mile.
The Corvette is also a great choice for speed fans who want to save gas and have fun at the same time. For a sports car, the 1LT Stingray version of the Corvette gets great gas mileage, using an average of 17 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
The regular Audi V10 model isn’t as good as the Stingray, but it gets great gas mileage for a sports car. It uses 16.7 litres of gas per 100 km in the city (14 mpg) and 8.4 litres per 100 km on the highway (28 mpg).
Still, if you look at how much gas the most powerful Corvette and R8 models use, the German brand is better than the American powerhouse.
The V10 Plus, which is Audi’s most powerful car, uses about 17.5 litres per 100 kilometres (13.5 mpg) in the city and 9.3 litres per 100 kilometres (15 mpg) on the highway (approximately 25 mpg).
The Corvette Z06 Convertible is the most powerful car that Chevrolet makes. It gets 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
The Audi Virtual Cockpit is a customer favourite in the Audi R8 and will please even the most traditional drivers.
Chevrolet chose a more traditional and luxurious look for the new Corvette. Even when it is parked in a garage, the car looks fast.
