Due to arrive in showrooms by the end of 2015, the all-new Audi R8 has been totally revamped, raising the bar for other premium sportscars. With a single V10 quattro engine, the R8 will be capable of reaching the fastest speeds ever seen in an Audi production car. On top of this impressive power, the sheer beauty of the all-aluminium body demonstrates that every aspect has been precision-engineered to inspire awe.
A new signature grille has been added, flanked by intelligent LED headlights which exude finesse. The low-slung stance of the R8 points to the car’s potency on the road, and a broad bonnet and sloping roofline enhance the sports car’s aggressive character.
The rear has been widened and lowered, working together with the new trapezoid-shaped exhausts to create a truly exhilarating driving experience – complete with a blistering, full-throttle soundtrack.
Sleek curves and fresh, energetic design point to the explosive power lying beneath the bonnet. One 5.2-litre V10 engine is available for both the standard Audi R8 and V10 Plus models – yet this one engine can deliver sensational results. Opt for the entry-level car and you’ll have 533bhp at your disposal, to launch from 0-60mph in no more than four seconds.
The V10 Plus version heightens the performance quality, taking enjoyment to unprecedented levels. Capable of generating an enormous 602bhp and accessing peak torque of 560Nm, the model will cover 0-60mph in just over three seconds. It comes as no surprise that, with a top speed of 205mph, the Audi R8 is the fastest Audi production car ever made.
With a racing-inspired cockpit and plush leather trims, the R8’s interior demonstrates that every inch of the vehicle has been restyled to perfection. Complementing the flat-bottomed steering wheel – with vital controls placed at the driver’s fingertips – is a 12.3-inch MMI monitor. This display replaces the instrument panel, with sophisticated 3D maps and regular journey updates.
Starting at around £119,500, the all-new Audi R8 will soon be available to test drive from the Drift Bridge dealership in Epsom, Surrey. To register your interest today, get in touch with us online using the form provided or give us a call.
