From 0 to 100 km/h
Power from the centre
At the heart of the Audi R8 lies a naturally aspirated V10 engine situated between the axles. The 5.2 FSI engine (Fuel consumption combined¹: 12.9 l/100 km; CO₂ emissions combined¹: 294–293 g/km) provides maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6,200 rpm. The dry sump lubrication allows the engine to be mounted especially low – which greatly influences the precision with which you can control the R8 in any situation. The special firing sequence of the ten cylinders is what ultimately provides the remarkably distinctive sound.
The suspension: Precision in all its facets
The Audi R8 Coupé V10 quattro² has the Audi drive select dynamic handling system with four modes on board as standard. Audi magnetic ride with CFRP stabiliser is available as an optional ultralight damping system that adapts the functioning of the shock absorbers to your driving style and to the profile of the road.
Available as an option, dynamic steering adjusts the steering angle based on the speed to enable extremely agile handling. The steel brake system with perforated and internally ventilated brake discs reduces your momentum. Its striking wave design shows the great extent to which Audi incorporates its lightweight design approach into every detail of the R8 Coupé quattro². Optionally available as a ceramic brake system with brake callipers in red, anthracite or blue.
Racing line design
Deep horizontal lines give the Audi R8 Coupé V10 quattro² a flattened and sporty appearance. The side is dominated by the characteristic blades; the rear – with the sporty diffuser, the air vent grille that spans the width of the car and the new, oval exhaust tailpipes – makes the ultimate statement. You can opt to replace the standard 19-inch wheels with newly designed 20-inch milled wheels that are available in 5-V-dynamic design with three different surface options.
The Audi virtual cockpit: All the information you need
The combination of MMI navigation plus and Audi virtual cockpit that comes as standard is designed to make all functions easy to operate, without you having to take your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road. On the 12.3-inch display of the Audi virtual cockpit, the focus is on a rev counter around which other performance values can be arranged, such as torque, G-forces, lap times, engine and gear oil temperatures plus tyre pressure and temperature. The MMI control system works with intelligent voice recognition.
Customisation: Exclusive signature
You can help define how your Audi R8 looks from the outside – Audi exclusive³ gives you the option to have the exterior paint finish in the exact shade of your choice. In addition, you can choose from 10 different matt effect paint finishes. To give contrast to the sideblades, you can add accents in gloss or matt customised paint finishes. You also have the option to put your own clear signature on the Audi R8 through partial matting of a logo or lettering of your choice.
