The Audi R8 Coupe V10 was launched at the 2018 Paris Motor Show and the best way to describe the car is “Born on the race track, built for the road”

The Audi R8 Coupe has set some serious standards. In addition to its sportier design, the Audi R8 Coupe has a much powerful engine and delivers stunning performance,

With motorsport in its genes, it’s a miracle that this beauty is actually road-legal.

Specs:

Engine: V10 – 5.2 Liter
Horsepower: 540
Torque: 540
Acceleration: 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds
Top Speed: 320 km/h

Exterior Design:

Audi has put in a high-strength Audi Space Frame® (ASF) that has made this car lighter, more agile and even quicker on the road.

The new front splitter is now wider, as is the striking low-set air vent grille at the rear. The grille rounds off the diffuser that extends quite some way up. All of which underlines the bold sporty look of the Audi R8.

Building this mean machine is a complex and extremely skilled process. Each R8 is built exclusively by hand in a dedicated, new Quattro GmbH production facility near Heilbronn in Germany.

From completion of assembly to welding the car parts together, small, highly qualified teams give the R8 its unique shape.  With Audi buyers going for customizations and individual varations, Audi claims to have very rarely build the same R8 twice.

This makes each handcrafted R8 as unique as its owner. Now who would disagree with this claim?

Every small detail emphasizes the timeless design. From the muscular side profile to the athletic tail every design element of this Audi R8 is world class.

Interior Design:

The cockpit focuses on the most important aspect: the driver.

Engine start, driving dynamics, engine sound, infotainment and gear change commands can all be adjusted via the R8 performance leather steering wheel.

The innovative Audi virtual cockpit is also focused on the driver. The 12.3 inch TFT display shows lots of important information brightly and as high-contrast text and graphics. Every detail meets the highest requirements, both functional and aesthetic: for example, the R8 sports seats, also available in luxurious Fine Nappa leather, with diamond stitching.

You can let your creativity run wild and choose from a total of 28 different color combinations. Put your own stamp on the cockpit, and display your individuality.

Engine:

No one puts power more stylishly in the limelight as The R8 Coupe.

Once you glance beneath the rear windscreen, you find the V10 mid-mounted engine placed like a jewel. It can be illuminated if required. The central engine position ensures balanced vehicle stability and better road holding.
