Born on the racetrack, the Audi R8 Coupe brings the racing-tuned performance you’re seeking with uncompromised styling. This is your opportunity to enjoy the exhilarating performance that lies within.
Developed alongside the R8 GT3 LMS race car, the Audi R8 Coupe shares almost 50% of the same parts. Its main attraction is its 5.2-liter V10 FSI® engine that produces 532 hp. Taking it up a notch, the R8 V10 performance cranks out 602 hp and rockets from 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.
Standard on the R8 V10 performance Coupe is a unique application of quattro®, which emulates a rear wheel drive vehicle, but with the ability to send up to 100% of available torque to the front axle, depending on the driving situation. This is made possible by advanced technologies, like the electronically controlled hydraulic multi-plate clutch, the addition of torque vectoring and quattro® integration within the Audi drive select system.
Everything about the Audi R8 Coupe RWD tells you that it was born on the racetrack. Its rear-wheel drive chassis, specifically engineered suspension and tuning lets you maximize every ounce of power within its 532 hp V10 engine — clocking 0-60 mph in a mere 3.6 seconds.
Standard on the 2021 Audi R8 Coupe, MMI® touch with handwriting-recognition technology allows the driver to “write” their entry rather than selecting letters or numbers and more easily navigate maps by moving a finger across the touchpad.
Take every lap in comfort. The finely crafted extended leather and diamond quilt interior comes available on both RWD and performance models, allowing you to tailor your R8 to your style.
You can connect your Audi to your world with Audi connect®, an intuitive system that integrates sought after information like Google Earth, weather conditions and traffic information. The Audi R8 Coupe comes standard with a six-month trial subscription to Audi connect®, a Wi-Fi hotspot and more. Combined with in-vehicle 4G LTE connectivity, getting connected has never been easier.
Designed specifically for the Audi R8, the available Bang & Olufsen® Sound System offers premium audio technology and features 13 active speakers with a strategically placed subwoofer in the chamber of the front wheel, resulting in 550 watts of crystalline sound.
