Thrilling performance and breathtaking handling: introducing the new Audi R8
Crafted and developed from the ground up, the new R8 Coupé marks the second generation of the acclaimed high-performance supercar. Reborn with advanced quattro® all-wheel-drive to help tame the ferocious V10 with up to 610PS, be propelled to a top speed of 205mph. Never before has racing passion and energy been embodied like this.
Bringing breathtaking power and outstanding performance to the road, no Audi bearing the four Audi rings comes closer to giving you the adrenalin rush of the track in a series production vehicle. Amassing 13 Le Mans wins to date, Audi has led the way in this gruelling 24 hour race. Drawing upon these successes and its spirit of innovation, Audi has created an R8 which would be at home on the racetrack. With motor sport in its genes, the R8 range has been transformed to adhere to its racing pedigree and to deliver a true incarnation of Vorsprung durch Technik.
Lighter, flatter and with a more muscular stance than ever before, the R8 V10 offers a jet-fighter like slickness. Including exclusive mesh features and a vertically themed re-design, the R8's sloping curves and strong lines give it a longer look, which only adds to the imposing nature of this driving machine. Powering this epitome of innovative design, the naturally aspirated V10 engine offers more power than its predecessor, with 540PS and 540Nm of torque, giving the R8 V10 the ability to sprint to 62mph in a minuscule 3.5 seconds, before powering to a top speed of 198mph. If you're looking for even more breathtaking performance, the R8 V10 plus has an incredible 610PS with a maximum torque of 560Nm, giving it the ability to accelerate from 0-62mph in just 3.2 seconds. With stats like that you can see why the R8 V10 plus is the fastest Audi production car in history. Add to this the responsive quattro® all-wheel-drive system and experience up to 100% of the R8's torque transmitted wholly to the front or rear wheels, delivering spectacular results.
With performance taking centre stage, the interior has been focused on the driver to offer optimum control. With its new monoposto cockpit design, it's no coincidence that upon climbing inside the new R8, it gives you the feeling that you've just taken control of a racing car. Embracing a cleaner look, the cockpit marries handmade quality with perfect finishing to further enhance the race car feel. Offering you limitless customisation possibilities, the Audi Virtual Cockpit and the 12.3 inch high resolution screen, featuring a diverse arrangement of display modes and functionality, make staying entertained and informed on the go a seamless experience. Add to this the multi-function steering wheel with Start-Stop engine button, exhaust adjustment, driving dynamics and gear changes, and you can take control of every aspect of your automotive thoroughbred without ever having to take your hands off the wheel.
