Immediate response, lightning speed, optimum accelerating and a boisterous sound, the new Audi R8 coupe is utterly aspirational. Captivating at first sight, this model surpasses any perception of what a luxury sports car should look and sound like. Everything about the new R8 hints at the boundless performance capabilities concealed beneath its vigorous skin. analyses
Owing to familiar Audi Sports car characteristics such as fluid curves, striking shapes, taut lines and a fierce poise, this coupe is an instant head turner. However, improved features such as the broader, muscular Singleframe radiator grille, aerodynamically designed side sills separated by dense bars and the strikingly low-set air vent grille at the rear, makes this Sports car even more jaw-dropping on the road and illuminates its athletic personality.
Powerful Sports car aesthetics are also evident within its cabin, with influential motorsport features straight from the racetrack, beautifully-appointed colours and sumptuous materials fusing together to create a sporty yet comfortable environment. Even more impressively, the monoposto cockpit design instantly evokes the feeling of being inside a true race car. The driver-centric cockpit allows for engine start-up, exhaust sound, driving dynamics and gear changes to be controlled from the buttons on the unbelievable performance steering wheel, while the standard Virtual Cockpit puts all key information directly in front you. Therefore, the cabin has been explicitly designed with performance driving in mind.
The R8 is the ultimate Audi sports car. The revolutionary V10 5.2 litre engine provides more power than ever before, with 532 bhp and a maximum torque of 540 Nm, the standard Rear Wheel Series model can accelerate from 0–62mph in an astonishing 3.7 seconds. The 5.2-litre FSI quattro V10 plus is even more impressive, producing 602 bhp and powering this model from 0-60mph in an unbelievable 3.2 seconds.
