2018 Audi R8 Coupe – A legendary race car to own
Sharing just under 50% of the same parts as the R8 GT3 LMS race car, the Audi R8 Coupe is bred through the lens of motorsport. The 540-hp or 610-hp V10 plus engine epitomizes the mid-engine drivetrain concept, providing ideal vehicle balance through its center of gravity and dynamic weight transfer characteristics.
Similar to its singular performance, the Audi R8 Coupe features a unique application of quattro® technology, which emulates a rear-wheel drive vehicle, but with the ability to send up to 100% of available torque to the front axle, depending on the driving situation.
Born on the track – built for the road
The 2018 Audi R8 Coupe comes standard with Audi magnetic ride, which uses a synthetic blend of oils that contain tiny magnetic particles to create a magnetic field within the shock absorber. Several modes are offered to match your preference. Dynamic, Comfort and Auto settings are available via Audi drive select.
A bold new vision
Available on the R8 V10 and standard on V10 plus models, full LED headlights with Audi laser light technology help you see things clearer. When conditions permit, the Audi laser light modules activate, helping increase sight range. In addition, visual distinction is provided by anodized blue vertical strips within the headlights and dynamic turn signals.
