Audi R8 Oil Capacity and Oil Type

The proper engine oil is essential for optimal performance, so it’s critical for the car to have a long lifespan and dependability. The suitable oil, for example, ensures that the engine operates smoothly. The oil keeps the mechanical components of the layer separate from one another by preventing them from coming into touch with each other directly, which protects the engine.

What Kind Of Oil Does an Audi R8 Take?

Engine oil is designed in various viscosities to match the demands of distinct engine types. Engine oil is manufactured in a variety of viscosity grades to suit the needs of various engines. The proper viscosity grade for your engine depends on the type of fuel used, engine design, and climatic or seasonal conditions where you drive.

For gasoline engines, you may use SAE 5W-40 oil in all temperature ranges for normal driving. If that grade isn’t available, however, you can use 5W-30 or an alternative viscosity grade as long as it meets the required Audi oil quality standard.

We recommend that you always carry a spare quart (liter) with you, since engine oil from Audi-approved suppliers may not be accessible everywhere.


The R8 supercar, which is Audi’s most powerful automobile, has a screaming 602-hp V-10 engine sitting just behind its cozy two-seat interior. It looks quite a bit like the Lamborghini Huracán, although it’s less flamboyantly constructed. Its driving pleasure isn’t up to snuff, but buyers looking for a supercar that they can drive regularly may find Audi’s refinement acceptable.

The interior is unadorned, with all infotainment features controlled by the digital gauge cluster, yet it’s still a pleasant and high-end environment suitable for the R8’s steep starting price. More cargo capacity would be nice, but it isn’t why you buy a vehicle like this. You buy an R8—or its rivals, the Porsche 911, and McLaren 570S—for the enjoyment that comes from driving it.
