Audi quattro® is your bond with the road

The Audi R8 features legendary Audi quattro® all-wheel drive. Tailored specifically for its mid-engine configuration, quattro® provides an 85 percent rear torque bias. And when inclement weather or performance situations call for it, the system dynamically distributes power to the wheels that need it most. This is confidence-inspiring handling.

Lighting that stands out, day or night

Powerful LED technology gives the R8 one more way to assert itself. Full LED headlights brighten your path during the night with illumination that recreates daylight, increases contrast, and reduces eyestrain.* And LED daytime running lights give other drivers a heads-up that they're about to be passed. This is Le Mans-proven technology that's ready to shine every day.
