Both the R8 and the Huracán have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, all-wheel drive, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.
There are over 16 times as many Audi dealers as there are Lamborghini dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the R8’s warranty.
The R8 Coupe’s standard fuel tank has 2.7 gallons more fuel capacity than the Huracán (23.8 vs. 21.1 gallons).
For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the R8’s wheelbase is 1.2 inches longer than on the Huracán (104.3 inches vs. 103.1 inches).
The R8’s front power windows open or close with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The Huracán’s power windows’ switches have to be held the entire time to close them fully.
The R8’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Huracán’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.
Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the R8 to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The Huracán doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.
The R8’s standard rear and side view mirrors have an automatic dimming feature. These mirrors can be set to automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Huracán doesn’t offer the luxury of automatic dimming mirrors.
To help keep the driver’s hands on the wheel, the R8 has standard steering wheel controls for the radio. The Huracán doesn’t offer steering wheel audio controls.
