The R8 features the same naturally aspirated V10 engine found in the R8 LMS racecar, a completely new application of quattro® all-wheel drive, and a more functional yet technologically advanced cabin. No other Audi model bears a closer tie to racing. The R8 features an updated seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch transmission, which can shift gears in 120 milliseconds, the V10 model, with 540 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque reaches 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and top track speed of 199 mph.
The new top model, the R8 V10 plus with 610 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, goes from zero to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and can achieve a top track speed of 205 mph. Weighing approximately 77 pounds less than the R8 V10, the V10 plus features standard Audi carbon ceramic brakes, carbon fiber rear diffuser, front lip spoiler, exterior mirror housings and fixed rear wing spoiler, and for the first time in the U.S., racing shell seats.
