The New Audi R8 Officially Breaks Cover

We saw the first real leak this morning and now Audi have pulled the wraps off of it officially. Long press releases are so painful to read so here is a summary;

  • 5.2-litre V10 available with 540 hp and 610 hp (Plus variant)
  • 0 to 100 km/h takes 3.2 seconds in the V10 Plus and 3.5 seconds in the V10
  • Cylinder-on-demand system available to shut down cylinders when not necessary
  • No manual option – only 7-speed S-Tronic transmission
  • Four driving modes; comfort, auto, dynamic and individual
  • Virtual cockpit as seen on the TT is present
