The new Audi R8: Updated dynamics for the high-performance sports car

Audi R8 Coupé V10 performance quattro

No other Audi is closer to motor racing: The R8 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) and 456 kW (620 metric horsepower), respectively; this is complemented by modifications to the suspension and an even more striking exterior design. Sales in Europe will begin in early 2019.
