The N23m 2015 Audi R8

1-audiThe 2015 Audi R8 is an appealing and luxury sports car with athletic handling, a composed ride and an attractive cabin.

It has a standard V8 engine with two optional V10 engines. The R8’s standard six-speed manual transmission makes the car very fun to drive, according to critics, and its optional seven-speed automatic delivers quick gear changes. Fuel economy for a base 2015 R8 is an EPA-estimated 14/23 mpg city/highway, which is low for the class. Test drivers agree that the Audi R8 is incredibly nimble and also rides comfortably.


The Interior

The interior of the 2015 Audi R8 has a sophisticated design and high-end materials with seats that are supportive, spacious and comfortable on long journeys.

Standard features include Bluetooth, satellite radio, navigation and Audi’s MMI infotainment system.

The Audi R8 is priced between $115,900 and $182,500 (N23 – N36 million).
