The second-generation, all-new Audi R8 has arrived and is now available from Lookers Audi.
Redesigned by race engineers, the high-revving 5.2 litre V10 and V10 plus engine, ultra-lightweight Audi Space Frame and S tronic transmission takes sports motoring to the next level. Each R8 is built almost exclusively by hand and, with a wide range of specifications, the same R8 is rarely made twice.
A choice of solid, metallic, pearl or crystal effect paints allow you to customise the look of your Audi R8. Gloss Carbon elements on the V10 plus (Gloss Carbon on the R8 V10) emphasises the motor-racing look of the V10 plus, while the rear fixed spoiler ensures enhanced grip on corners by providing a greater downforce. All-LED headlights create instant impact from the front while the rear LED lights include dynamic rear indicators.
Refined materials, precise workmanship and innovative technologies all come as standard on the R8 V10.
Inside, the driver gets the feeling of being behind the wheel of a race car. Buttons on the R8 steering wheel ensures the controls are always within reach. Audi Virtual Cockpit further enhances this ensuring all information the driver needs is directly in front of them.
The Audi R8 V10 offers even more power and torque than ever before, a fantastic 540PS and 540Nm. Reaching a top speed of 198mph, the V10 can sprint from 0 to 62mph in just 3.5 seconds.
The R8 V10 plus builds on this with a staggering 610PS and maximum torque of 560Nm allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 3.2 seconds on its way to a top speed to 205mph, making it the fastest Audi production car in history.
The engine itself is illuminated and visible through the rear window and sits directly behind the driver, giving the R8 a lower centre of gravity and, new to this generation, includes Cylinder-on-demand and Dual injection system.
