  • 1400x438_AR8_151004_1.jpg

A plus in performance. The Audi R8 Coupé V10 plus.

It was created in the world’s most demanding development laboratory: motorsport. About 50 percent of all components that are used for the R8 are based on motor racing technology. From the powerful engine and intelligent lightweight construction to the aerodynamic design: the R8 Coupé V10 plus proves that it would be virtually impossible to add to this already enhanced performance.

Turn a first impression into a lasting one.

The Audi R8 Coupé V10 plus is setting benchmarks: the 5.2 litre V10 FSI engine has a power output of 449 kW and impresses with its breathtaking performance. It needs just 3.2 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h. Propulsion ends only at 330 km/h. The S tronic 7-speed dual-clutch transmission enables gear changes in hundredths of a second with virtually no break in propulsive power. The newly developed quattro drivetrain provides outstanding traction thanks to all-wheel drive and wheel-selective torque control. With 322 wins in the genes, the Audi R8 Coupé V10 plus leaves a lasting impression on the track, too.

    Proof that it has nothing to prove.

    The appearance of the Audi R8 Coupé V10 plus makes its presence felt. Except when it comes to air resistance. The aero-dynamic body line is based on the shape of the legendary Audi R18. In addition, many details made of carbon give it an unmistakeable motor racing look. The 20-inch forged aluminium wheels and the carbon ceramic brakes impressively draw attention to the R8 Coupé V10 plus even when stationary. As soon as the engine deploys its power and the fixed rear wing increases the downforce, one thing becomes strikingly clear: this car is about far more than just looks.

    Bend the road to your will.

    Demonstrate power: with the 19-inch carbon ceramic brake system at the front and rear – standard in the Audi R8 Coupé V10 plus. Even under high thermal stress their excellent deceleration and control are impressive. They also stand out thanks to their low weight. Show character: with the exclusive sport suspension with double-wishbone axles front and rear. Audi magnetic ride adds yet another dimension: the damping forces are adjusted in fractions of a second. Uncompromising driving behaviour. Every split-second.
