The 2008 Audi R8 developed from the 2003
Audi Le Mans concept and named after Audi's five time Le
Mans winning race car, the R8, was the first mid-engined sports
car from the German auto maker.
The Audi R8 features a 4.2 litre V8 engine and quattro permanent
all-wheel-drive slotted into an all-aluminium space frame body.
Giving the car a 0-60 mph time of just 4.6 seconds and a 187
mph top speed. And with its mid-engine layout the Audi R8 has
a weight distribution identical to that of its race car namesake,
44 percent to the front, 56 percent to the rear.
The R8 takes Audi to the next level as a manufacturer
The Audi R8's designers have opted for LED lighting, these take
up less space and therefore allow for more creative positioning
on the car. As well as adding to the very slick detailing. Audi
have also delved into the world of bionics (drawing design inspiration
from nature) for the headlights and created a design inspired
by an open pine cone. Also up front the trademark Audi rings
are mounted on the hood, as opposed to the traditional position
on the grille.
The distinctive panel behind the door and side window of the
R8 is available in 3 different colors and materials including
and brushed aluminium. The Aerodynamic properties of the Audi
R8 are enhanced by an automatically extending rear spoiler to
help keep the car firmly planted to the road.
Inside, the Audi R8 is characterised by a driver orientated
layout. A high center console, angled instrument panel, and
flat bottomed steering wheel all increase the race car vibe.
The supportive sports seats are trimmed in either a leather/Alcantara
combination or full leather. Or for the more hardcore racing
bucket seats can be fitted.
