Its all-new! Audi R8 – The fastest and most powerful series production Audi in history.
As befits the dynamic spearhead of the Audi range the latest R8 will feature an exceptional specification. It starts externally with all-LED headlamps and LED tail lamps incorporating dynamic rear indicators with a scrolling function in the intended turn direction.Each model is fitted with the latest-generation quattro all-wheel drive, which utilises an electrohydraulic multi-plate clutch capable of sending up to 100 percent of torque to the front or rear axle depending on driving conditions.
Acclaimed Audi virtual cockpit
Inside, Fine Nappa Leather-upholstered sports seats with electric adjustment for V10 models and sculpted bucket seats for the V10 plus will position the driver perfectly in relation to the new multi-function plus steering wheel and the Audi virtual cockpit, both of which make their R8 debut here. In the R8 V10 the new flat-bottomed steering wheel facilitates control of all the information and entertainment functions offered by the virtual cockpit.
The Audi virtual cockpit is set in a free-standing housing and presents all the information on its 12.3‑inch display with elaborate and pin sharp graphics. You can toggle between different display modes and also adjust the digital instrument cluster to suit in individual mode. In performance mode, the driver is presented with information on the driving programs, acceleration, deceleration and lateral forces as well as power and torque. The Audi virtual cockpit also displays a shift light which illuminates when the rev limit has been reached. The driver operates the Audi virtual cockpit using the multifunction plus steering wheel, meaning there is no need to remove a hand from the steering wheel. Alternatively, operation is also possible via the touch wheel or the buttons in the centre console.
Extend your spoiler
On the outside, the V10 is equipped with an electrically extending spoiler, while the R8 V10 plus gains a large fixed rear wing in carbon sigma, matching the finish of its heated and folding exterior mirrors, sideblades, front spoiler lip and rear diffuser.
The extensive list of options available for the new R8 features enhancements that further enrich the driving experience, including the sports exhaust, the magnetic ride adaptive damping system, laser spotlights for the all-LED headlights and bucket seats (standard for V10 plus), as well as indulgences such as stunning 20-inch alloy wheels and a 500-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system. Numerous décor upgrades also be added to create a uniquely personal R8. The R8 V10 will be priced at £119,500 OTR and the R8 V10 Plus at £134,500.
