The new Audi R8: Updated dynamics for the high-performance sports car
No other Audi is closer to motor racing: The R8 (Combined fuel consumption in l/100km: 13.3 – 12.9 (17.7 – 18.2 US mpg); combined CO2 emissions in g/km*: 301 -293 (484.4 – 471.5 g/mi) is the dynamic spearhead and the fastest volume-production model of the Audi Sport brand. The revised version of the high-performance sports car as a Coupé and Spyder is even sharper and more powerful. Its naturally aspirated V10 engines now have an output of 419 kW (570 metric horsepower) (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km*: 13.3 – 12.9; combined CO2 emissions in g/km*: 302 – 293) and 456 kW (620 metric horsepower) (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km*: 13.3 – 13.1; combined CO2 emissions in g/km*: 302 – 297), respectively; this is complemented by modifications to the suspension and an even more striking exterior design. Sales in Europe will begin in early 2019.
