The Audi R8 Coupé V10 performance quattro S tronic


Audi’s R8 Coupé V10 performance quattro marks the elegant transition from the race track to the road. Not only will it perform spectacularly in both settings, but it is sure to capture the attention of anyone lucky enough to lay eyes on it. Explore what this hardtop variant of the new R8 range has to offer when it comes to interior and exterior highlights.


The Audi R8 Coupé on the Outside


Audi takes plenty of design cues for the R8 Coupé from its rich history in motor-racing. Note the passenger space located so close to the front of the car, the R8’s well-defined diffuser and prominently accentuated wheel arches, to name but a few of the racing-inspired design elements.


To make the R8 Coupé seem even sportier and more low-slung, those in charge of its design added deep horizontal-running lines to the front of the car, which makes it look a great deal wider than it actually is. The Audi R8 V10 Coupé’s sides are dominated by its distinctive blades and at the rear end, the car makes a statement with both its glossy black, oval-shaped exhaust tailpipes and its air outlet grille, which spans across the full width of the back of the car. A final highlight of the R8 Coupé’s tail end is the great, fixed carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (or CFRP) spoiler.


The Audi R8 Coupé on the Inside


Step inside the Audi R8 Coupé and its racing heritage becomes clear once more. Directly in front of you, you will find a vast, contoured arc which is home to all of the car’s controls. Those who are familiar with race cars will know that the layout emulates that found in a driver-centric monoposto car.


In terms of cabin comfort, Audi’s R8 Coupé V10 performance quattro is fitted with R8-specific sport seats, which are covered in a Fine Nappa Leather. Decorative elements inside the car come in an ultra-glossy carbon. The standard stainless steel footrest and pedals, along with carbon inlays, enhance the sleek and modern feeling of the cabin even further.


Some of the standard interior technology features include the classic Audi combination of the Audi virtual cockpit and MMI navigation, which both help to make the driver’s life more convenient.



The Audi R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro S tronic


You can let the roof down and feel the wind rushing through your hair as you experience the race car-inspired pedigree of Audi’s R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro. It shares most of the characteristics and design elements of its hardtop counterpart and offers just as impressive an interior and exterior. The R8 Spyder can be likened to a work of art in motion.


The Audi R8 Spyder on the Outside


Drive around in the Audi R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro when its soft top is down and the attention will be drawn to the car’s strongly accented wheel arches. Put the soft top up and now the focus shifts to the overall athletic lines of the Audi R8 V10 Spyder. All these elements, along with the flat slits located above the Spyder’s single-frame radiator grille, recall Audi’s proud racing heritage. The majority of body elements are shared with the Audi R8 Coupé.


The standard 19-inch wheels can be replaced by redesigned, milled 20-inch wheels featuring a dynamic design and 5 Vs-style. Furthermore, a choice between three distinct surfaces can be made. These options are also available on the Audi R8 Coupé.


The Audi R8 Spyder on the Inside


Like its Coupé counterpart, the Audi R8 Spyder’s interior layout is reminiscent of a monoposto car, with all the controls found on a sizable, contoured arc in front of you. It also features R8-specific sport seats that are upholstered in Fine Nappa leather. The ultra-glossy carbon decorative elements, stainless steel footrest and pedals, as well as the accompanying carbon inlays ensure the cabin feels sleek and stylish.


Its operating system, which it shares with the Coupé, is designed that the driver can enjoy total control over all of the vital vehicle functions, without their hands having to leave the steering wheel or their eyes having to leave the road ahead. MMI navigation plus and the Audi virtual cockpit work together seamlessly to make life easier.
