Audi reveals an ultra limited Performance Parts R8
Audi has just unveiled the ultimate R8 version that promises to be “the most capable and focused to date”, tapping into the brand’s accessories catalogue.
Based on the high-performance R8 V10 Plus coupe, the new Audi Sport Performance Parts R8 features lightweight bucket seats, race-inspired three-way adjustable suspension and milled 20-inch wheels equipped with grippy Michelin “cup” tyres. New brake pads and titanium backing plates improve the efficiency of carbon-ceramic stoppers, while the interior benefits from a race-like Alcantara steering wheel.
Power from the 5.2-litre V10 engine remains unchanged at 602 hp. All-wheel-drive traction from the V10 Plus is retained, along with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Just 44 examples of the Performance Parts R8 will be sold to customers around the world ensuring it remains a collectors temptation. Audi has yet to divulge official pricing and delivery date announcements.
