The Audi motorsports and production teams combined forces to share just under 50 percent of the same parts as the R8 GT3 LMS race car to build the new Audi R8. The centerpiece of the new Audi R8's performance is the 5.2-liter V10 FSI® engine that produces a stunning 562 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque.

For those in the Austin area who want to take their performance to a whole new level, the R8 can be equipped to deliver 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque for an even more thrilling performance. When properly equipped, the Audi R8 can reach speeds of up to 205 MPH and a 0-60 MPH of 3.2 seconds.

The legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system is used in a completely unique manner that emulates a rear-wheel drive vehicle, but with the ability to send up to 100 percent of available torque to the front axle. Advanced technologies like the electronically controlled hydraulic multi-plate clutch, torque vectoring, and quattro® integration within the Audi drive select system make this impressive driving experience possible.

The new Audi R8 coupe comes with advanced driver mode settings that change the driving characteristics of the performance to suit the driving conditions and your preferences.

These fives driving modes include:

  • Comfort
