The new Audi R8 V10 RWS is officially the very first R8 with rear-wheel drive. He was manually built and limited to 999 pieces. Prices start at € 212,090, – for the Coupé. The Spyder is from € 227,550, -. Place an order from next fall.
Audi proposes a new version of the R8 at the Frankfurt salon. It’s a more extravagant and radical version, like the Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 already. To achieve that, the engineers have removed the Quattro four-wheel drive that we already know of the current R8 V10 and R8 V10 Plus.
However, this does not produce better sprint times. The top speed drops by a mile or two and the sprint time goes back to three tenths. Less traction. The Spyder takes the 100 in 3.8 count. The Coupé in 3.7.
The electromechanical control is free from driving influences and contributes to a very precise road handling. By default, the Audi R8 V10 RWS is on 19-inch, black-finished five-spoke wheels with 243/35 tires in front and 295/35 rear. The Audi R8 V10 RWS can be ordered from this fall.
