The chassis: precision from every perspective
In addition to performance, racing is always about how precisely and how directly you can replicate it on the road. A key part of the answer is the chassis: double aluminium wishbone axles guide all four wheels of the Audi R8. The Audi R8 has the driving dynamics system "Audi drive select" with four modes on board, as standard. With Audi magnetic ride, there is the option of having a damping system adapts the way the shock absorbers work to suit your driving style and the profile of the road – making changes every millisecond for each individual wheel.
The re-tuned steering assistance passes on your steering even more directly and ensures exceptionally accurate feedback from the road. The optional dynamic steering adjusts the steering angle depending on your speed, thereby ensuring extremely agile handling. Standard steel discs, perforated and ventilated, reduce momentum. Their eye-catching wave design shows just how much effort Audi has put into ensuring that the lightweight approach to the R8's construction is reflected in every detail. The brake callipers are available in black and, on request, in red, too.
The design: the ideal line
Designed to be at the front of the pack: the new Audi R8, with its passenger space located close towards the front, its strongly accentuated wheel arches and its distinctive diffuser, borrows a host of design elements from racing and Audi's history of motor-sports.
Deep horizontal lines lend the front a good deal of width and make the Audi R8 seem even more low-slung and sportier. The side is dominated by the characteristic blades, while the rear issues a final statement with the air outlet grille across its full width, along with the new, oval exhaust tailpipes. There is the option to replace the standard 19-inch wheels with redesigned milled 20-inch wheels, which are available in a dynamic design featuring 5 Vs, and a choice of three different surfaces.
The Audi virtual cockpit: keep the essentials in view
The concept of using the interior to enable the driver to focus as much as possible on the track is extended to the digital world with the standard combination of MMI navigation plus and the Audi virtual cockpit. The large 12.3-inch diagonal display focuses on a tachometer. Additional values are arranged around this, such as torque, g-forces, lap times, engine and transmission oil temperatures, and tyre pressure and temperature. The MMI operating system works with intelligent speech recognition and in principle can be controlled without you needing to take your hands off the steering wheel.
Personalisation: your exclusive signature
Play a role in shaping the exterior appearance of your Audi R8 – Audi exclusive gives you the opportunity to have the exterior finish perfectly tailored to your individual needs. Five colour options, along with individual finishes, are available for contrasts on the side blades. You can add a logo or lettering of your choice, providing you with the opportunity to clearly mark your Audi R8 for the first time.
