The new innovative design announces the rebirth of the king. The new Audi R8 Coupé strikes the world again. It takes only 3.6 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h thanks to the R8 V10 engine with the S tronic® dual-clutch transmission. The mid-engine that originates from race cars provides balanced driving stability. The high-strength aluminum frame structure with a high level of stiffness and Audi Magnetic Ride provide better dynamic performance and greater running stability. The quattro® permanent all-wheel drive copes with all road conditions easily. The monoposto-look cockpit with a race car style is wrapped by carbon fiber, allowing you to enjoy the passion of perfect control. The inborn gene of a king brings unprecedented sporty experience.
The powerful new Audi R8 Coupé 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.Learn more
Audi uses the world’s first “belt microphone” technology on R8 Coupé. Microphones are embedded into each belt to provide the hands-free function for the driver without affecting the seat belts. You can use the microphones conveniently without being interfered by wind noise even when you drive against the wind. Keep communication at any time, enjoy a journey of freedom.Learn more
The Audi R8 Coupé that inherits the gene of a king gives you new insights into “the power 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.Learn more
The Audi Magnetic Ride is an adaptive shock absorber system with individual selection of suspension settings (Normal/Sport) via button on the center console. When the system detects different road conditions and driving conditions, it improves ride comfort and handling characteristics by regulating the damping forces. The Audi Magnetic Ride is standard for R8 V10, and is optional for R8 V8.Learn more
