The Second Generation Audi R8, introduced in 2015, represents a significant evolution of the iconic supercar. Building upon the success of its predecessor, the 2nd gen R8 continued to offer a striking and aerodynamic design in both coupe and convertible Spyder versions. The 2nd-gen Audi R8 continued to be a symbol of Audi's commitment to high-performance sports cars. Some common issues of the 2nd gen R8 include:
Transmission and Clutch: Some owners have reported issues with the dual-clutch S tronic transmission, such as rough shifting or mechatronic unit problems. The clutch may also require replacement over time. Get to a specialized Audi repair shop for any transmission issues.
