Worthy of the track

Teams from Audi motorsports and production worked hand-in-hand, sharing just under 50% of the same parts as the R8 GT3 LMS race car. The main attraction of the R8 is the 5.2-liter V10 FSI® engine, which produces 562 hp of power and 406 lb-ft of torque. Taking it up a notch, the R8 V10 performance cranks out 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, and blisters from 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.

quattro® all-wheel drive

The R8 Coupe features a completely unique application of quattro®, 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. This is made possible by advanced technologies, like the electronically controlled hydraulic multi-plate clutch, the addition of torque vectoring and quattro® integration within the Audi drive select system.
