The Audi R8 is a Mid-Engine 2-seater Sports car and has two power unit options. The 4.0 V8 or the fabulous 5.2 V10 and available in fixed head Coupe or Spyder (convertible) which both use Audi's trademark "Quattro" Four Wheel Drive (permanent all-wheel drive) system. It came about as a result of the concept car built for the Le Mans 24 hour endurance race. Jacky Ickx 6 time winner of the race described the Audi R8 as the best handling road car available which really is some statement
The Audi R8 was introduced by the German car manufacturer in 2006 and was an instant hit. Its radical design and performance launched it into the Super Car Club. The 5.2 V10 525 bhp uses the same power unit and platform as the Lamborghini Gallardo and Huracan .The sound from the twin exhaust when in sports mode is incredible and you certainly dont need the Bang & Olufsen sound system.
The Audi R8 has been a revolution and market leading in many ways. It is the first production car to use full time Led headlamps. The R8 has some great film affiliations too with the V10 Spyder used in the film Iron Man 2.
