Since they sell in such low numbers, supercars are rarely examined by our nation’s safety agencies; indeed, the R8 has not been crash-tested, and therefore we cannot give it a rating here. The R8 offers little in the way of active-safety features, but the coupe comes equipped with a full complement of airbags.

Nothing has changed here for 2018, and the R8 still hasn’t been tested by NHTSA or the IIHS.

Crash-Test Results

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the nonprofit, independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluate vehicles for crashworthiness in the United States. NHTSA assigns cars an overall rating out of five stars. IIHS uses a different set of tests, grades cars on a scale of Good to Poor, and awards the vehicles that perform best across its tests with Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ honors, the latter of which requires that the subject’s automated forward-collision-braking system performs well.
