The Audi R8 V10 Performance RWD
Even more power, even more fun
Available as a Coupe or Spyder, the exciting new R8 V10 performance RWD increases the power of the 5.2 litre V10 engine by an additional 30 PS.
The Audi R8 V10 RWD delivers an impressive 570PS and boasts new technological highlights such as bucket seats, dynamic steering, CFK stabilizers and ceramic disc brakes. The R8 V10 RWD Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reaches 329 km/h maximum speed. The Spyder achieves this in 3.8 seconds and has a 327 km/h top speed.
“The Audi R8 V10 RWD really struck a chord with customers right from the start with its rear-wheel drive derived from the R8 LMS racecar and its unfiltered dynamics. Now it has 30 PS and 10-newton meters more, taking the driving experience to a whole new level,” says Sebastian Grams, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH.
The overly sporty design is inspired by its GT4 siblings. Aspects include the broad, flat Singleframe radiator grill in matte black with an R8 emblem flanked by large air intakes, the front splitter and rear air outlet grid as well as the oval tailpipes. The slit under the front hood is similar to that of the legendary Audi Sport quattro. Available in ten colour options, one of them Ascari Blue Metallic, a colour that was previously only available for the R8 V10 performance quattro. The “R8 performance” design package boasts an interior with black Alcantara leather, contrast stitching in Mercato Blue and decorative carbon inlays.
The tight lines of the design set the tone inside the car as well, with the most eye-catching element being the “Monoposto” – the large, heavily contoured arch that spans the area in front of the driver’s seat and is strongly reminiscent of a racecar cockpit. Drivers and passengers can enjoy newly available R8 bucket or sports seats, upholstered in leather and Alcantara.
