Innovative technologies in the new Audi R8 model family
- Operating concept of the new Audi R8* very similar to that of a race car
- Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg: “Car racing has been part of our Audi DNA for many decades now.”
- New Audi R8 e-tron: driving range of up to 450 km (279.6 mi)
At Audi, race cars and production cars have a lot in common in many technical areas – including their controls and displays. The best example is the similarity between the Audi R18 e-tron quattro race car prototype, which will start at the 24 hours of Le Mans this weekend, and the new production Audi R8 sports car. The designs of their steering wheels and digital displays show significant commonalities. The high-performance sports car, which will go on sale late this 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 even more power, speed and endurance.
Fuel consumption figures Audi R8:
Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 12,3 - 11,4;
Combined CO2-emissions in g/km: 287 - 272
Audi R8 e-tron:
This car is not yet on sale. It has not yet been homologated and is therefore not subject to the 1999/94/EG guideline.
Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data as well as the efficiency classes are dependent on the choice of wheels and tyres.
