More powerful engine
The new Audi R8 Coupé and Spyder have been unveiled and it is sportier and even more powerful with its V10 naturally aspirated engine.
The almost identical drive technology of the V10 engine in the R8 LMS GT3 and R8 LMS GT4 is put to good use on the racetrack.
Modifications to the suspension provide even more stability and precision. The assistance has been re-tuned both with the optional dynamic steering and the electromechanical power steering.
Depending on the selected engine, the three additional programs dry, wet and snow are added to the well-known Audi drive select modes with the performance mode.
Michael-Julius Renz, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH said:” The R8 occupies a unique position for Audi in every respect”
Oliver Hoffmann, Technical Managing Director of Audi Sport adds: “It’s now even more powerful and faster.”
The new R8 models will be arriving at dealerships in Germany and other European countries in first quarter of 2019 and go on sale in early 2019.
