Performance

5.2 Liter V10 Engine
    At the heart of the R8 5.2 FSI® quattro® is the soul stirring 525 hp 5.2 FSI V10 engine. Displayed under a transparent panel and nestled within a Carbon Fiber Sigma engine bay, the V10 screams to an astronomical 8700 rpm and propels the R8 5.2 to 60 mph in only 3.7 seconds on the way up to a top track speed of 196.4 mph. As part of a race-bred mid-engine design that contributes to superb handling dynamics, the 5.2 V10 produces 101hp/liter and features race winning technology such as FSI direct injection and a dry sump lubrication system that assures engine lubrication under the most demanding driving situations. It is no wonder then, that this same engine is used in the R8 LMS GT3 race car
   
4.2 Liter V8 Engine
    The soul of the R8 4.2 FSI quattro® is the adrenaline inducing 430 hp 4.2 FSI V8 engine. Like the 5.2, the V8 is also displayed under a transparent panel, producing 316 lb-ft of torque and rocketing from to 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds to a top track speed of 187 mph. As part of a race-bred mid-engine design that contributes to superb handling dynamics, the 4.2 V8 features race winning technology such as FSI direct injection, sodium-cooled exhaust valves and is setup for a high-revving 8250 rpm.
   
Six-speed R tronic Transmission
    An automated six-speed manual gearbox combines the control of a manual gearbox with the advantages of an automatic.
    Shifting is performed with the joystick gear lever or with manual shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel. A sport mode shift program further accentuates motorsport oriented gear shifting.The manual transmission features a gated shifter, S mode and launch control, which offers lightning fast shift times.

quattro® All-wheel Drive
    As a true supercar the R8 not only offers blistering speed but awe-inspiring handling. Featuring the legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system, the R8 inspires driver confidence, giving you traction when you need it, where you need it, regardless of road conditions. To accommodate the extreme performance of the R8, quattro® utilizes a continuously variable torque distribution, dynamically adjusting power to the wheels with the best traction. With a significant 85% rear torque bias and up to 30% available for the front wheels as needed, this highly specialized quattro® system provides the R8 with a balanced driving experience unlike any car on the road.
   
FSI® Direct Injection
    Audi Fuel Stratified Injection, or FSI®, offers the benefits of increased performance and fuel efficiency. FSI direct injection delivers a precise amount of fuel directly into the engine cylinders as opposed to the engine intake runners. This advanced process helps ensure a more complete combustion, thereby diminishing waste and increasing power.
    Additionally, the specially designed piston heads compress the fuel-air mixture in a spiraling motion, creating the most efficient combustion possible. Making the most of these technologies allows for greater efficiency in the combustion process.

Dry Sump Lubrication
    A dry sump is an exclusive oil system in development as a racing application that uses a secondary external reservoir for oil, as compared to a conventional oil system.
    Dry sump lubrication offers many advantages in the R8. For instance, under heavy acceleration or cornering, the vehicle's powertrain components stay in place and continue to receive lubrication, guaranteeing an even and constant supply of oil. The large reservoir offers increased oil capacity, which ensures cool oil temperatures for consistent performance. Also, a lower center of gravity is achieved through a low sitting engine, giving the driver superior handling.
Handling
Audi Magnetic Ride
    With thousands of miles logged on the world's most grueling test circuit, the North Loop of the Nürburgring, the suspension system of the R8 is further enhanced with Audi magnetic ride, which offers instantaneous driver control at the touch of a button. By utilizing an advanced magnetically charged fluid whose viscosity continuously adapts to driving dynamics and can be controlled electromagnetically, the driver can select from 'Normal' or 'Sport' modes to customize the R8 ride and handling. The result is improved driving dynamics, reduced body movement and better handling on the road.
   
Advanced Braking System
    The R8 boasts a braking system designed to match its impressive power output. The system features a 14.4" front rotor with eight pistons and a 14" rear rotor with four pistons, all of which offers high clamp force for fast, powerful braking. The brakes are internally vented and cross-drilled to increase airflow and cooling, which prevents brake fade for faster stopping.

ASF®
    The R8 is built with the revolutionary Audi Space Frame [ASF®] chassis, a technology Audi invented, and has spent more than a decade mastering. The framework of an ASF body consists of extruded aluminum sections and pressure castings. The aluminum chassis and sheet metal are just as strong as steel, but lighter to boost performance and efficiency. The frame carries the sheet aluminum elements, such as the roof panel, which helps withstand loads on the body. The elements of ASF are varied in shape and cross-section, depending on the tasks they have to perform. Like the bones of a bird, they combine optimal function with low weight. The result of ASF technology is a frame that is lightweight yet extremely strong, which delivers high torsional rigidity and optimal performance.
Exterior
Motorsport-inspired Design
    The same designers who created the Le Mans-winning prototypes also designed the R8. And not only does the R8 perform like the race car that won the last ten out of twelve 24 Hour of Le Mans races, but it also bears the same track-dominating resemblance. From its wide stance, to its powerful wheels to the artful integration of exclusive materials like Carbon Fiber, the R8 is as unmistakable parked as it is in motion.
   
Full LED Lighting
    The R8 is the world's first series-production vehicle to offer an available full LED headlight system. High beam, low beam, daytime running lights, mirror-housed turn signals and taillights all offer brilliant, unmistakable illumination.
