Meet the Audi R8 Coupé

Chest-pounding performance and jaw-dropping design

    Introducing the
    new R8 Coupé V10 RWS

    Unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show, it is the first production rear-wheel drive Audi to bring the driving concept of our R8 LMS racing car to the streets. It is 40kg lighter than the V10 quattro Coupe and will do 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds. The chassis setup and control systems allow controlled drifts if the driver chooses, the electromechanical power steering is completely free of torque steer, enabling precise handling and control.

    RWS will come as a limited edition with a global combined Coupé and Spyder volume of only 999 cars. Prices of R8 Coupe RWS will start from £110,000 on the road.

    Motorsport-inspired performance

    Designed to give you the adrenaline rush normally only found on the track, the R8 Coupe’s 7-speed S-tronic transmission allows for gear changes within hundredths of a second with virtually no break in acceleration. Your heart will race – guaranteed.

    The V10 plus edition sprints from 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 205mph*, making it our fastest production car ever. The high-revving 5.2 FSI V10 engine is housed behind the driver and visible through the rear, meaning you’re never far from the heart of the R8.

    *Where the law permits.


    Every curve and every line has been carefully crafted to create a muscular and forceful presence that’s awe-inspiring from every angle. From the side, it impresses with honey comb blades and the iconic profile of a thoroughbred supercar. From the front, the Singleframe radiator grille, all-LED headlights and road-hugging low positioning steal the show. And the rear reveals its mid-mounted engine through the back window that will make spectators envious.

    In-car technology

    The Monoposto cockpit of the R8 Coupe evokes the feeling of being inside a race car that’s about to hit the Circuit de Monaco. With the flat-bottomed 3-spoke steering wheel and the all-digital Virtual Cockpit display that puts everything you need right in front of you, it’s a driver-focused experience like no other.

    MMI Navigation Plus comes as standard and so does Audi Drive Select which enables you to tailor your ride with different modes. In performance mode, the R8’s signature engine sound really makes itself heard, confirming its Audi Sport DNA.
