Take a good look at the R8 while it's stopped because the details are hard to catch when it's in  motion. The R8's redesign maintains the sports car's basic shape while bringing it in line with  the new model year. The striking headlights have been updated, while the signature Singleframe® grille  matches Audi's current style. Ice Silver defines the sideblades, while the front and rear fascia are  accented in Anthracite Black gloss.

  • Full LED automatic headlights
  • Adaptive rear spoiler
  • Power-adjustable, power-folding, auto-dimming, heated exterior mirrors


Again, the R8's naturally aspirated V10 is Audi's most powerful production engine ever. The V10 Plus boosts  its power output to 610 horsepower, which is well worth the price adjustment. At peak performance, the new R8  has a top track speed of 205 mph, and it will go from 0 to 60 in a mere 3.2 seconds. The driver can personally  configure steering feel, engine and transmission response, and chassis stiffness using Audi's drive select system.

  • 5.2L FSI® dual injection V10 engine: 540 horsepower, 398 lb.-ft. torque
  • With V10 Plus: 610 horsepower, 413 lb.-ft. torque
  • 7-speed S tronic® dual-clutch transmission
  • quattro® all-wheel drive
  • ultra® lightweight technology - ASF® multi-material space frame


The fastest Audi is by necessity one of the safest. The 2017 R8 uses dual-stage front airbags, thorax side  airbags, Sideguard® head-curtain airbags, and knee airbags to protect occupants. It's also equipped with anti-lock  brakes, Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution, and brake assist to help you maintain control in the event of a  sudden stop. Other safety features include:

  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Traction Control
  • Tire-pressure monitoring system
  • Front and rear acoustic parking sensors
  • Rear view camera


The R8's interior is pure motorsport heritage. Nappa leather seats are standard, with a leather package  available to extend that upholstery to the armrests and inserts. A three-spoke multifunction steering  wheel is also wrapped in leather, and it presents the R8 badge surrounded by satellite buttons and paddle  shifters. The steering column tilts and telescopes so you can find the ideal positioning.

  • Automatic climate control
  • Black Alcantara® headliner
  • 18-way power sport seats (heated)

Entertainment and Convenience

Your primary entertainment comes from driving the R8, but if you opt for the V10 Plus model, you can also get  a 550-watt, 13-speaker Bang & Olufsen® sound system. Audi's MMI® navigation and touch systems are also present  for seamless interface with the R8's systems, and the Audi virtual cockpit continues to evolve the instrument  cluster on a 12.3" LCD display.

  • Audi connect® (six-month trial subscription)
  • Embedded seat belt microphones for voice control and BLUETOOTH®
  • Audi advanced key (keyless start, stop, and entry)
  • INRIX XD® Traffic
  • Rain/light sensor for automatic windshield wipers and headlights


As with all of its products, Audi stands by the new R8. It ranks among the finest sports cars ever made, and Audi  wants you to understand its commitment to you and your car with the following warranty:

  • 4-Year / 50,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty
  • 12-Month / 10,000 mile (whichever occurs first) NO CHARGE first scheduled maintenance
