Hottest R8 to date announced

29.10.2014

THE Audi R8 has been with us for years and has evolved into one of the most accessible and enjoyable vehicles to drive in its segment. Never satisfied, the engineers at Audi have announced a Competition version of the German supercar.

The new version produces a massive 419kW from its familiar 5.2-litre V10. The model is mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission as well as a sports exhaust. This makes for a 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 330km/h.

From the exterior you’ll notice matte black carbon trim pieces, such as a fixed rear wing, engine bay, mirror housings, side blades and a front and rear diffuser. These elements add extra downforce and reduce weight. There are also black wheels, along with carbon ceramic brakes. Inside there are carbon fibre elements too, which include the centre console and door sill inlays.  This exclusive model will be limited to 60 units, which will be produced at the Nekarsulm production facility in Germany.
