Ceramic discs, lighter and safer

01

Ceramic discs are optional. The materials are lighter than those used on traditional steel discs in order to meet the needs of fast driving. It adopts 6 piston fixed calliper brake at front and 4 piston fixed calliper brake at rear. The discs are made of carbon-fiber reinforced ceramic material which generates huge resistance to wear. This reduces sensitivity to high heat load and extends the mileage. The specially developed cooling channels strengthen the ventilation, ensuring the best brake performance under extreme conditions.

The overall safety protection system escorts for your trip

The powerful new Audi R8 Coupe has a stronger safety protection system. It has full-size airbags for driver and front-seat passenger with 2-stage deployment, as well as side airbags integrated in the seat backrests (not with R8 bucket seats). The side impact protection comprises bend-resistant aluminum impact beams in the doors, side airbags activated by pressure sensors in the B pillars and protective side padding in the doors.

The integrated head restraint system can supports the head better and reduces the risk of a whiplash injury. In the event of a collision, the design of the seats restrains the upper torso. In addition, the active roll-over protection is an automatically-triggered protective system behind the head restraints. The safety steering column with mechanical inclination and axial adjustment is an effective complement of seat belts and airbags. The overall safety protection measures escort for your exciting trip.

The system also shows the calculated path - including help lines, guidelines and the best turning point, freeing you from all troubles of parking.
