    The new Audi R8

    The previous model was already the sporty vanguard of the brand – and this applies to the second generation Audi R8* even more. The newly conceptualized high-performance sports car has been made even tauter and stronger, both on and off the race track. Embodied in its DNA is know-how acquired in the numerous car racing successes that Audi has achieved over the years – primarily in endurance racing events. The sport prototypes have won the 24 hours of Le Mans 13 times since 2000, and the R8 LMS contributed seven more overall victories in 24 hour races since 2009.

    Innovative technologies in the new Audi R8 model family

    At Audi, race cars and production cars have a lot in common in many technology areas – including their controls and displays. The best example is the similarity between the sport prototype Audi R18 e-tron quattro and the new production sports car, the Audi R8*. Their steering wheels and digital displays share a lot of common features. The high-performance sports car, which will go on sale in late summer, is part of a sporty model family together with the GT race car, the Audi R8 LMS, and the battery-electric powered Audi R8 e-tron. In its latest evolutionary stage, the Audi R8 offers more power, speed and endurance.
