Sharing roughly 50% of the same parts as the R8 GT3 LMS race car, the Audi R8 Coupe is bred through the lens of motorsport. The 562-hp or 602-hp V10 performance engine epitomizes the mid-engine drivetrain concept, providing ideal vehicle balance through its center of gravity and dynamic weight transfer characteristics.
The Audi virtual cockpit is a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument display that allows the driver to customize information such as navigation and audio, offering Classic and Infotainment modes as well as Google Earth™. The R8 Coupe has a third option: Sport mode, which displays a large, central tachometer and performance statistics, such as a lap timer, horsepower and torque gauge, G-meter, tire pressures and temperatures.
Showcasing its motorsport DNA and embodying its powerful performance, the R8 Coupe has a honed new look, from its wide front grille to its signature Audi Sport oval exhaust outlets, with new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, darkened headlights and more.
