0 - 100km
A synthesis of power and elegance.
In the Audi R8 Coupé V10, the 5.2-litre V10 high-revving engine with dual injection has an output of 397 kW and sprints from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.5 seconds. The deep V10 engine mount and the 90° cylinder angle give the R8 Coupé V10 a low centre of gravity. The impressive combination of intake-manifold and direct fuel injection means improved performance, low fuel consumption and reduced exhaust emissions. For a lasting impression.
10 cylinders are the focus of attention.
The R8 Coupé V10 puts power stylishly in the limelight: The V10 mid-mounted engine lies like a jewel beneath the rear windscreen, and can be illuminated if required. The central engine position ensures balanced vehicle stability and better road holding. Stunning performance combined with timeless style - every line emphasises the timeless design, from the muscular side profile to the athletic tail.
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 colour combinations. Put your own stamp on the cockpit, and display your individuality.
Lighter. Flatter. More muscular.
The all new Audi R8 is even lighter and more agile on the road, thanks to the latest high-strength Audi Space Frame® (ASF). Each R8 is built almost exclusively by hand in a dedicated, new quattro GmbH production facility near Heilbronn in Germany. From the welding of the body shell to the completion of assembly, small, highly qualified teams give the R8 its unique shape. It’s an extremely skilled process. And, with numerous specification variants and customisations, our teams very rarely build the same R8 twice. Making each handcrafted one as unique as its owner.
The R8 leads the way with an optional feature:
LED headlights with Audi Laser Light technology. At 60 km/h, four high-power laser diodes are activated by the high beam, sending out a narrow laser beam of white light that’s three times more intense than any other LED headlight, filling the driver’s lane with light, illuminating the darkest corner and showing everything that lies ahead.
Each year, Audi sells close to two million vehicles. But sometimes, the customer requires something a bit more unique in order to suit their personality. And in a region where you find exclusivity at every corner, it is not surprise that the Middle East is one of Audi's most popular markets in the world for individual customization.
