From the Inside (Part II)
What is an appealing addition to any garage and that comes with good things like the aluminum chassis with its hydraulic power steering that has been largely left intact and the decrease in weight for the 2014 Audi R8 convertible
is of no extreme lightweight; weights for the range should still run from 3500 to 3900 or so pounds, is a supercar with comfortable cabin and amazing inside features and design with intoxicating soundtrack.
Audi offers new fabrics and leathers in this 2014 Audi R8 convertible
and as in the past, the 2014 Audi R8
has a finely crafted cabin with top-notch materials. There are also several subtle changes to the Audi R8's interior for 2014. There's a thicker steering wheel rim with perforated trim and new shift paddles (for trims with S tronic only); available diamond-pattern stitching for the Napa leather seats; new gloss-black and genuine aluminum elements; and added leather trim in general.
The lightweight 2014 Audi R8
seats are comfortable for long-distance travel, and the driving position suits a wide range of people. The center stack's elegant swoop and major controls are away from the driver. Additionally, the navigation and audio controls are operated by a dash-mounted MMI knob and constellation of buttons located beneath the display screen. A clever idea in this 2014 Audi R8
is the integration of the microphone for Bluetooth into the driver's seatbelt.
For a mid-engine supercar, the 2014 Audi R8 convertible
is surprisingly spacious, with adequate room for luggage and passengers. New details include a metal strip above the navigation screen, metal accents on the power-window switches, and restyled shift paddles for the dual-clutch box.
Furthermore, the Spyder models' convertible soft top may be operated at speeds up to 31 mph. It takes roughly 20 seconds in either direction to transform. The Spyder's thermal-resistant leather seats effectively lower surface temperature, which is a nice attribute for open-top motoring.
When things come to favorite features of a supercar, one can find nothing better than drivability and power to talk about. The 2014 Audi R8
rides firmly despite its adaptive suspension, and road noise is pronounced relative to most other Audis. But by exotic-car standards, the R8 is a remarkably comfortable and quiet daily driver. Low seating height notwithstanding visibility is especially good in all directions. On twisting roads, the R8's preposterous power, quick reflexes and heroic grip conspire to make this 3,600-pound supercar feel as nimble as a lightweight roadster.
While the V10-powered R8 models have a performance advantage, it's hard to justify the additional outlay of cash in light of how slight the acceleration advantages are and how truly good the V8 versions are. Furthermore, unless you're spending an unusual amount of time at a racetrack, where hundredths of a second actually means something, we'd pass on the 2014 Audi R8
V10 Plus as well.
Speaking of power, the V10 adds an appreciable amount, as well as a uniquely racy soundtrack, but even the base V8 is one of the best-sounding and most tractable engines one can ever experience. Unlike the slow-witted and duly criticized single-clutch gearbox offered in past years and no longer available for 2014, the new dual-clutch automated manual is now the transmission of choice. Sure, the manual shifter is mechanically rewarding and visually stunning, but the quickness and infallibility of the automated manual is unbeatable in terms of true performance as well as comfort.
Standard equipment on the 2014 Audi V8 coupe includes 19-inch wheels with summer tires, an adaptive suspension, cruise control, full LED lighting, automatic climate control, heated eight-way power seats (with four-way power-adjustable lumbar), leather and faux suede upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated side mirrors, Bluetooth and a seven-speaker sound system with six-CD changer, auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio.
The Convenience package adds front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, power-folding mirrors and interior storage nets. Carbon-ceramic brakes, a fully leather-upholstered interior (extra for diamond stitching), a faux suede headliner, a navigation system, an iPod interface (deletes the CD changer) and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system are also available.
Optional on the lesser versions are the carbon-ceramic brakes that bite sharply and displays no fading during prolonged hard driving. They are recommended if you can swallow their significant price premium.
The 2014 Audi R8
V8 convertible adds an electrically powered soft top and a retractable rear window that doubles as a wind deflector. The 2014 Audi R8
V10 convertible has those features plus a V10 engine, different suspension tuning, different wheels, the convenience package, premium leather, the navigation system and the Bang & Olufsen audio system. The 2014 Audi R8 V10 coupe has all of these standard amenities as well.
The coupe-only 2014 Audi R8
V10 Plus model includes all the V10 coupe equipment plus a higher-output engine, the carbon-ceramic brakes and an abundance of carbon-fiber trim pieces. But for further weight savings, it has a smaller fuel tank and deletes the adaptive suspension and power seats.
Further model-wide 2014 Audi R8
options include a variety of carbon-fiber exterior and interior trim packages. The coupes can be equipped with alternate "side blade" finishes.
The 2014 Audi R8
standard safety equipment includes antilock disc brakes, stability control, side airbags and knee airbags. Front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera are standard or optional, depending on the trim.
This year, to shed weight and aid in cooling, Audi has changed the design of the non-ceramic brake discs used on all models, except the V10 Plus. Before that change, in brake testing, multiple Audi R8s have come to a stop from 60 mph between 104 and 106 feet, which is very good. Meanwhile, a 2014 R8 V10 Plus with the carbon-ceramic brakes came to a halt in 106 feet.
Nevertheless, all R8 iterations are toss-able, precise, and good-natured. Drifts out of corners in these 2014 Audi R8
convertibles can be easily induced, but if you enter clumsily, you could end up with noticeable under-steer.
There's a plethora of interesting speedy coupe and convertible model cars on the market but none can match the comfort, performance and extravagance of this striking 2014 Audi R8 convertible
which clearly makes its mark in that crowded peer set and stands out as one of the best thanks to an excellent mix of good road manners, comfortable ride, and value for money and pleasing styling.
