Audi R8 Coupe a Legendary Race Car to Own

Audi R8 has been rightfully celebrated as Audi’s finest model since its launch in 2007. The peak of Audi’s styling and high-performance engineering capabilities, the R8 is also the fastest model from the manufacturer. The new generation of Audi R8 is more polished and fine-tuned than its predecessor, and shares a platform with the Lamborghini Huracan.
The hard top coupe version is immensely powerful – housing a 5.2 V10 engine with 602bhp capacity is able to reach top speeds of up to 205mph.

Audi R8 Specification

The 540-hp or 610-hp V10 plus engine epitomizes the mid-engine drivetrain concept, providing ideal vehicle balance through its center of gravity and dynamic weight transfer characteristics. Audi USA

Audi R8 Exterior

Audi R8 has the styling of the super-car, and without the disadvantage of a higher price tag. No one can disagree that the R8 does not look great. The low, sleek roof and air ducts on both sides of the bodywork allow for the best performance from the car. Audi’s designers have done well, though, to work these engineering features into the car’s design. It has an allover paint job, which doesn’t look as nice as the one on the old model. That’s just about the exterior’s only flaw, though.

Audi R8 Interior

Audi R8 can only seat two people, but it offers them plenty on the inside. The interior is a comfortable enough place to be. The interior is well detailed and as sleek and cool as the exterior. The driver’s side has the feel of a racing car cockpit. The conical trim, the raised pedals and steering wheel-mounted controls all there to help get the best drive from the car.
