The R8 V10 performance RWD is manufactured – predominantly by hand – at the “Böllinger Höfe” sports car production facility in Heilbronn, not far from Neckarsulm, Audi’s second location in Germany. The Audi R8 has been manufactured here since 2014, and in 2019 the factory was expanded as well as upgraded and converted to accommodate the Audi e-tron GT. As a result, Audi’s two most powerful and fastest production models of all time are now being built here. “Manufacturing two vehicles that are so technologically different on one assembly line is unique across the group,” noted production manager Wolfgang Schanz. “With the integration of the all-electric four-door coupe, our small-scale production facility at Audi's Böllinger Höfe has transformed into a highly flexible high-tech production facility that nevertheless retains its small-scale character.”
The LMS GT4 race car, which is directly derived from the production model and uses around 60 percent of the same parts, is also built at the site.
Up to 1,000 highly qualified employees work in sports car production here on around 40,000 square meters of production space. “Due to the flexibility of the Böllinger Höfe facility, preparations for the production of the R8 V10 performance RWD were very straightforward. Together with the team from small-scale production, we were able to integrate the new R8 derivative into the processes without any problems,” remarked Björn Friedrich, Audi R8 project manager
