About R8

For 2008, an all-wheel drive, two-seat, mid-engined product immediately changed the way many looked at the Germany company Audi. Audi converted the name of their famous Le Mans-winning R8 prototype race car as the identity of their supercar. The production Audi R8 borrowed underpinnings from the Lamborghini Gallardo but featured a completely unique style and character. A 420-horsepower 4.2-liter V-8 engine powered the first Audi R8 supercars with the momentum to propel from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4 seconds. For 2010, a 525-horsepower 5.2-liter V-10 engine was introduced. Another major change followed in 2011 as a convertible R8 Spyder joined the hardtop coupe body style. Providing a 560-horsepower engine, the limited edition Audi R8 GT also included functional motorsport-inspired touches such as a fixed rear spoiler and the extensive use of carbon fiber components. This exotic lightweight material would also become key to the second-generation 2017 Audi R8. A virtual cockpit display system is among several bold additions to the updated R8. V-10 engines producing 540 or 610 horsepower, depending on the model, as well as an all-electric e-tron Audi R8 will be offered.
