As a top sports car of Audi, R8 Coupe brings whole-new feelings of “control”: the mid-engine layout ensures stability at high corners; the S tronic® 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is used for the first time to realize swift gearshift; the quattro® permanent all-wheel drive gives the best traction under all road conditions. They realize better dynamic driving and safety, bringing the biggest driving pleasure to the driver.
A top sports car, enjoy the pleasure of dynamic driving
All-new S tronic® 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, reach the highest speed instantly
The astonishing acceleration performance is benefited from the swift gearshift: the use of the S tronic® 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Used on Audi R8 for the first time, the transmission facilitates gearshift time in hundredths of a second and gearshift with no perceptible interruption in the power flow. It takes only 3.6 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h. What you need to do is to hold your breath.
quattro® permanent all-wheel drive, cope with all road conditions
How to unleash the strong engine power on roads? Our solution is the quattro® permanent all-wheel drive. This permanent all-wheel drive has been given a heavy rear emphasis – in line with the vehicle’s character. It works with a directly responding multi-plate clutch which distributes the torque variably between the front and rear axle, significantly improving driving stability and handling agility. The advantage is more obvious when you choose dynamic driving. The quattro® permanent all-wheel drive delivers the best traction under all road conditions and realizes better dynamic driving and safety, bringing the biggest driving pleasure to the driver.
The mid-engine layout, experience the excitement of flying on the ground
The Audi R8 Coupe that inherits the gene of a king gives you new insights into “the feeling of control”. Thanks to the mid-engine design, the engine weight is near the vertical axis, which ensures a balanced distribution of axle load. This results in neutral driving behavior and outstanding road handling. The dry sump lubrication makes reliable oil supply possible at high lateral acceleration forces. In addition, the flat oil sump allows the engine to be installed lower, bringing the vehicle’s center of gravity closer to the ground. Such a layout provides excellent traction and the best conditions for dynamic driving. It ensures stability at high corners and allows the driver to enjoy the excitement of flying on the ground.
