    The Audi R8Thrilling performance. Breathtaking handling. Redesigned from the ground

    up, the second-generation R8 has arrived. A high-revving 5.2-litre V10 engine, lightweight Audi Space Frame technology and an S tronic transmission capable

    of gear changes within hundredths of a second; no model bearing the 4 Audi rings comes closer to giving you the adrenalin rush of the track in a series

    production vehicle.

    Its the determination to innovate that has led Audi to success after motorsport success, amassing a total of 13 Le Mans wins.

    And its with the spirit of innovation that we brought our most exciting developments to series production. The result is the

    Audi R8: the embodiment of Vorsprung durch Technik.

    With the Audi R8 LMS, we built an R8 to triumph on the track. And its record speaks for itself. Since 2009, the teams at the

    wheel have won 26 national and international titles, as well as 269 competitive races with the rear-wheel drive GT3 sports car.

    Now, the new lighter and even more powerful second-generation LMS has arrived. Made to race, it shares around 50% of its

    parts with the R8 Coup, including technologies like the Audi Space Frame and V10 engine. Clearly, the R8 is a car with

    motorsport in its genes.

    At home on the racetrack.

    Rear Wheel SeriesAvailable as Coup or Spyder but with production strictly limited to 999 models the R8 RWS brings the purity of

    the GT3 race series to the road. With power from the 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 engine focused exclusively on the rear wheels, it launches from 062mph in an exhilarating 3.7 seconds. With the body-coloured sideblades

    exclusive to this model, youll see that the R8 RWS is designed for pure driving pleasure with a unique style.

    The new rear-wheel drive R8. An even more engaging drive.

    R8 V10 CoupWith a new, responsive quattro all-wheel drive system, up to 100% of the R8s torque can be transmitted wholly to the front or rear wheels, depending on road

    and weather conditions, for improved traction and grip. Its stronger, yet lighter, than its predecessor. The naturally aspirated V10 engine offers even more power

    than before, with 540PS and 540 Nm of torque. As a result, it can sprint to 62mph in 3.5 seconds, before powering on to a top speed of 198mph.*

    *Where the law permits.

    The Audi R8 V10 has transformed.

  • 14 15

    R8 V10 plus CoupBreathtaking: with 610PS and maximum torque of 560 Nm, the R8 V10 plus Coup accelerates from 062mph in 3.2 seconds. Making it not just the fastest Audi production car in history, but also the

    first to reach 205mph.*

    The Gloss Carbon fixed rear spoiler provides greater downforce for enhanced grip in corners. Its just as formidable to hear. Activate the Performance mode on Audi Drive Select and the controllable

    exhaust flaps to enhance the R8s signature engine sound.

    Performance to the extreme.

    Power up. Roof down. R8 V10 Spyder

    The Audi R8 V10 Spyder: the supercar that combines the breathtaking performance of the R8 with the open-top thrill of a cabriolet. The R8 Spyder doesnt just accelerate from 062mph in 3.6 seconds;

    its one that also gives an intense audible performance. Especially when the roofs down.

    Fully automated, the lightweight hood opens in 20 seconds at speeds of up to 31mph. And, once its stowed and you open the throttle, youll notice lower levels of wind and road noise than on previous

    Spyder models; thanks, in part, to a rear deflector that can be raised and lowered to suit you.

    More power. More possibilities.R8 V10 plus Spyder

    How do you heighten the thrill of open-top driving in an Audi R8? Simple: add a specially tuned V10 plusengine that delivers 610PS and takes you from 062mph in 3.3 seconds. To match all this power,

    weve also included lighter, even more efficient ceramic brakes, specially designed to cope with the kind of heat generated during dynamic driving.

    Striking from every angle.The Exterior

    The R8 has a flatter, muscular and aggressive look that more than gives away its high-performance credentials. The addition of carbon styling on the R8 V10 plus gives it an unmistakable

    motor-racing look, while a fixed rear spoiler adds to its looks and performance with increased downforce for enhanced grip. Incorporating a new alloy wheel design and unique sideblade styling,

    the R8 RWS clearly differentiates itself to create a commanding presence on the road.

    Inspired by the racetrack. Brought to life on the road.

    PerformanceThe R8 comes with impressive racecar-like performance, driving just as well on the track as it does on everyday roads. The S tronic 7-speed

    dual-clutch transmission brings fast, smooth gear changes and includes launch control for maximum acceleration from a standing start.

    And thanks to a specially adapted quattro all-wheel drive system on the V10 and V10 plus quattro models, up to 100% of available

    torque can be sent to the front or rear axle within a fraction of a second.

    Everything focused on the driver.

    The InteriorWith its monoposto cockpit design, its no coincidence that, on climbing

    inside the R8, you get the feeling of being behind the wheel of a racecar. Engine start-up, exhaust sound, driving dynamics and gear changes can

    all be controlled from the buttons on the R8 performance steering wheel.

    Giving you the power.

    TechnologyThe Audi R8 comes with a high level of standard specification.

    From the racetrack-inspired satellite buttons on its steering wheel to the stunning high definition Audi Virtual Cockpit.

    When you drive an R8, everything you need is right in front of you for an even better driving experience.

  • The Audi R8 Coup and Spyder are the very latest steps on our journey of progress.

    Progress. Its behind everything we do at Audi. Its why, in the Audi R8, weve incorporated new technologies to help you on the road and new engines to deliver impressive performance.

    The Audi R8 is the embodiment of our forward-thinking approach.

    Not just a slogan. A philosophy.

    The high-revving, mid-mounted V10 engine sits directly behind the driver and gives the R8 a lower centre of gravity. And on Coup, its illuminated and visible through the rear window.

    Theres a choice of 2 engines on both the R8 Coup and Spyder: the V10, available in the rear-wheel drive and quattro variant, delivering 540PS of power, or the V10 plus producing an astonishing 610PS. As well as cylinder-on-demand and a dual injection system, the R8 has more power and more torque than the previous R8.

    Performance takes centre stage.




  • For the times when you dont need the full power of the V10, advanced cylinder-on-demand technology automatically shuts down 5 of the 10 cylinders. Its something that can improve your fuel consumption, particularly in city traffic.

    Accelerate on the open road again, and within milliseconds, all 10 cylinders and full engine power are seamlessly back at your disposal.

    Cylinder-on-demand: power when you need it.

    The dynamic combination of intake manifold and direct injection in the high-revving V10 yields very short fuel injection times. The result is not just noticeable, improved power delivery; it also makes for enhanced cooling and lower fuel consumption.

    Dual injection: precise and powerful.

    The R8s sporting lineage is evident in the mid-engine placement. With the engine near the centre, weight is favourably distributed towards the rear axle, giving greater traction and making cornering more agile and responsive.

    Coupled with quattro all-wheel drive, performance is enhanced and road-holding is simply impeccable.

    Mid-engine: more traction, more control.
