Audi R8 Coupé

Born on the track. Built for the road.

A thoroughbred supercar created in the toughest development lab of all: the world of motorsport – the iconic Audi R8 Coupé. Around 50 percent of all components are shared with the formidable R8 LMS GT3 race car. From the powerful engines and intelligent lightweight construction, to the aerodynamic design.

The Audi R8 Coupé

The naturally aspirated 5.2 V10 engine in the V10 plus offers even more power and torque than before: a phenomenal 449 kW of power and 560 Nm of torque. It needs just 3.2 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h.


More muscular and more focused, the R8 Coupé makes a clear statement. The striking Audi Singleframe grille with honeycomb grid and the wide air inlets testify to its boundless power. The LED headlights convey excellence in form and function. The R8 Coupé is just as formidable to hear with the Audi sport exhaust system in dual-branch design with trapezoidal tailpipe trims. The V10 plus model features a fixed rear spoiler in carbon gloss, providing greater downforce over the rear axle.

    Lightweight construction

    Audi presents a new body concept and the next evolutionary step of the Audi Space Frame in the R8 Coupé. The multi-material construction design takes centre stage, with the body comprised of aluminium and carbon components. The result is a reduction in weight and an increase in rigidity and strength.

    In the R8 Coupé, a newly developed quattro drivetrain is deployed. A water-cooled electronically controlled and hydraulically actuated multi-plate clutch at the front axle and a mechanical differential lock at the rear axle enable controlled and sporty driving behaviour while maintaining outstanding traction. The drive torque can be variably distributed between the front and rear axle as required. In addition, the wheel-selective torque control counteracts undesirable wheel slip through targeted braking actions on all wheels, enhancing driving dynamics and improving directional stability.

    Audi virtual cockpit

    The Audi virtual cockpit, a standard feature of the R8 Coupé, is a 12.3 inch digital instrument cluster that replaces traditional dials. Driver information, navigation data and infotainment functions are displayed in brilliant high resolution, with three different layouts possible at the touch of a button. Sport mode is designed exclusively for Audi performance models, and places the rev counter in the centre of the screen.


With its monoposto cockpit design, it’s no coincidence that, on climbing inside the R8 Coupé, you get the feeling of being behind the wheel of a racecar. The interior boasts refined materials, precise workmanship and innovative technologies. Engine start-up, exhaust sound, driving dynamics and gear changes can all be controlled from the R8 performance steering wheel in the V10 plus.
