Naturally aspirated. Unnaturally fast.

Prepare for launch. At the heart of the R8 models lies a 5.2 litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine. The R8 V10 performance produces an astounding 602 HP, rocketing to 100 km/h in a scant 3.3 seconds with an intoxicating soundtrack to match.

On your mark.

With built-in launch control, the seven-speed S tronic gearbox is always ready for fun. Manual control and paddle shifters offer keen drivers that extra level of involvement.

The hills are alive.

With the sound of a V10 right behind your ears, the R8 excites all your senses. The optional Sport exhaust takes a menacing growl and turns it into a visceral roar. The R8 racing pedigree is clearly heard and felt.

Known to all. Built by a few.

Deep within the factory at Neckarsulum, Germany, a small team of 241 dedicated specialists brings each unique R8 to life. Precision reigns supreme as these experts hand-measure and assemble the R8, only utilizing robots when absolutely necessary.

The view from the virtual cockpit.

The Audi virtual cockpit combines the functions of a central MMI monitor and conventional instrument cluster in one unique TFT display.

Re-write the rules.

Standard on the 2021 Audi R8 Coupe, MMI touch with handwriting-recognition technology allows the driver to “write” their entry rather than selecting letters or numbers and more easily navigate maps by moving a finger across the touchpad.

Connect in more ways.

Assistance and security are at the core of Audi connect. Take advantage of fully integrated and seamless assistance tools, including intelligent navigation, remote vehicle services, car finder, and roadside assistance. Experience peace of mind with security features, including emergency call and stolen vehicle locator.

A sound experience.

Designed specifically for the Audi R8, the Bang & Olufsen Sound System offers premium audio technology. The system features 13 active speakers and a strategically placed subwoofer in the chamber of the front wheel, resulting in 550 watts of crystalline sound.

Let innovation be your guide.

On the road, shifts happen. Constantly moving vehicles, traffic and obstacles. The Audi available driver assistance technologies can help alert you to some of the unpredictable shifts that come your way.

Parking system plus with rear view camera.

This feature uses front and rear acoustic sensors to help detect when you are close to another object, while a rear view camera helps provide additional visibility when backing up.
