Audi Sport: iconic road cars born from some of the world’s most iconic motorsport legends. Available from M25 Audi
Audi has enjoyed a distinguished and highly successful motorsport career, one that goes back to the year it was created in 1910. But today, more than ever, that link between Audi’s competition pedigree can be felt through its high-performance road cars, in the form of the Audi Sport model range. The incredible and incredibly stunning R8 Coupé and R8 Spyder and the formidable performance RS models, ranging from Audi RS Q3 SUV to the Audi RS 7 Sportback four-door coupé, all directly benefit from Audi’s unquenchable passion for motorsport and its relentless pursuit for success through innovation. Racing with Vorsprung durch Technik, in other words.
Audi translates motorsport technology to road-car applications like few other manufacturers, and the result is legendary road cars such as the Audi Ur-quattro and RS 2 estate car and their modern day equivilants like the TT RS Coupé and the RS 6 Avant. Each is unique in its design and execution, but all are linked by their common motorsport lineage. Today, every Audi Sport model benefits from Audi pushing boundaries in the motorsport arena, and M25 Audi can get you in the driver’s seat of the full model range. Just get in touch to book a test drive with us at any of our M25 Audi centres.

Watch the Audi Sport models in action together:
quattro is one of the definitive motorsport technologies to have filtered down to Audi’s road cars, and it’s at the core of all high-performance Audi models. Designed to maximise traction to ensure as much power can be transmitted to the road as possible, at all times, it has been continuously developed over the years and is one of the main contributors to the RS models’ incredible performance. In the R8, its flexible distribution allows up to 100% of torque to be transmitted to the front and rear axles, for ultimate balance and control.
Le Mans technology
Audi has dominated Le Mans in recent years, with 13 overall wins since it first entered the world-renowned race in 1997, and was the first car manufacturer to win with a diesel-engined car, a hybrid-powered car and an all-wheel-drive car. Technology that was originally conceived for its Le Mans racers can be found across the Audi Sport range today, an example being the matrix beam LED lights that were first seen on the R8 LMX.
Founded in 1910 by German engineer August Horch, Audi became part of the newly formed Auto Union in 1932, which went on to create the near-mythical Silver Arrow race car, whose mid-engined layout went on to influence the design of all Formula One cars. Similarly, the motorsport blueprint for the Audi Sport road cars of today was the legendary Audi Sport quattro A1. This turbocharged, five-cylinder, all-wheel coupé made its debut in 1983 and was very quickly winning rallies – and also influencing the mechanical engineering of its competitors, an impact that we can still see today.
Audi's motorsport story is full of pioneering innovation. It’s perhaps inevitable that this constant evolution cascades from the racing department to road cars. To experience the ultimate incarnation of Vorsprung durch Technik from the driver’s seat, get in touch with M25 Audi today.
