Meet the Second-Generation Audi R8 Supercar!

The second-generation Audi R8 has been officially revealed and will be available to order in the UK from next month.

The new R8, which is considered to be Porsche’s 911 biggest rival, will be available in two versions, the V10 and the V10 Plus. The V10 can manage 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds at a top speed of 200mph, while the V10 Plus is capable of 0-62mph in 3.2seconds at a top speed of 205mph. Fuel consumption  and CO2 emissions are improved by 10% with the V10 returning 23.9mpg and 275g/km, whereas the V10 Plus is rated at 22.8mpg and 289g/km.

As it was expected, the exterior design is a gentle evolution from the first-generation R8, however, the new model boasts a strong muscular design.  Audi refers to the exterior as an ‘iconic R8 style with a defined muscular stance. ’ The new R8 features a lower, wider stance, a more aggressive bumper, and newly designed side blades that are divided into two, giving the car a longer look.

The luxurious interior embraces a cleaner look and handmade quality. The revolutionary racing technology together with the focused virtual cockpit gives the driver an enhanced race car feel.  

The new Audi R8 will go on sale later this year with prices starting from £119,500 for the V10 and from £137,500 for the V10 Plus.
