Audi R8, a race-track sports car for the road

More striking than ever. The second generation of the German high-performance sports car makes its debut in Geneva. Thanks to 610 hp engine, the car achieves 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds. No model with the four rings is closer to motorsport, none is more striking and more dynamic, ensuring the maximum pleasure of driving.  The materials selected for this four wheels jewel ensure low weight: the new Audi R8 weighs up to 50 kilograms less than its predecessor, thanks to the combination of aluminum and carbon fiber reinforced plastics. The aerodynamic underbody which integrates a long diffuser boosts downforce, demonstrating how close the new Audi R8 is to motorsport.

The design reflects the powerful sporty character.  A visual distinguishing feature which also provides enhanced safety comes in the form of the standard LED headlights. The four rings sit proudly on the hood, the Singleframe radiator grille with honeycomb design is wide and flat. Modeled plastic surfaces allow it to merge into the flat headlights – facets of the vehicle which highlight tension, provide an impression of depth and add an air of logic to the design. 

Behind the steering wheel of the new Audi R8, the driver feels like a race car driver. All functions are driver-oriented and allow easy operation even when the critical limits are reached and all without the driver having to take his or her hands off the steering wheel. The newly designed sport seats with integrated headrest. The Audi virtual cockpit is set in a free-standing housing and presents all the information on its 12.3-inch display with elaborately computed, fascinating graphics. The driver can have a unique driving experience, always concentrating on the road.

The new R8 will be available starting from summer 2015
