Audi R8 is a two-seater sports car designed and manufactured by Audi Sport GmBH, the private subsidiary of the German luxury Car manufacturer Audi AG, and was internationally launched at the Paris Auto show on 30th September 2006. It has been available in India in multiple variants and is the competitor for luxury cars manufactured by Mercedes-Benz. It is a mid-engine car that uses Audi's trademark all-wheel-drive system and is built on the Audi Space Frame principles. In India, the recently launched R8 V10 Plus is touted as the powerful and the fastest Audi ever built.
The launch of the R8 in India has helped Audi to introduce its global portfolio here and build upon its reputation in the sports car segment in India. However, due to poor sales and other reasons, Audi has taken the decision to discontinue this version in India in 2020.
The latest version of the R8 in India was the Audi R8 V10, which boasted of a 5.2-litre, 10-cylinder engine. These spectacular engine dimensions allowed the R8 V10 to churn out 386 kW, or 525 hp power and 530Nm torque, which made it a worthy competitor amongst its contemporaries. The Quattro all-wheel-drive made it possible for the driver to increase the speed from zero to 100km/hr just within 4 seconds, and another 200km/h in 8 seconds. The superior built engine gave the driver of the R8 a breath-taking sports car experience.
For its exteriors, the R8 is equipped with magnetic ride dampers, which supports shock absorption and adapts itself to the driver's style of driving. The rear diffuser generates more downforce, and the twin-oval tailpipes with the pristine LED headlamps give the car a sophisticated look. This mainframe is supported by high-gloss paints for the air-intakes and the classy 19-inch alloy wheels.
For its interiors, the dashboard has a classy, sporty look with the multi-function keys in the central console making it user-friendly for the driver to navigate. The steering wheels contain important buttons that allow the driver to navigate his fingers without having to actually leave the steering. The integrated headrests on the seats provide lateral support to the driver. The AC vents, gear selector knobs, and the overall interior of the car give a fresh look that greatly complements its exterior.
