The Audi R8 as a pre-owned car
In 2006, the Ingolstadt carmaker introduced a top athlete with the Audi R8, and it has also been most desirable as a pre-owned car since then. This stylish 2-seater with the race car look hits the streets with a weight of about 1,500 kilograms, has an aluminum body and comes equipped with permanent all-wheel drive. Optical features of the Audi R8 as a coupe are the striking ventilation slots at the front and rear ends of the car. This sports car with the midship engine has since become so sought-after, the entire annual production is sold out in advance.
A top-class sports car – the performance of the Audi R8
The Audi R8 pulled in numerous victories as a LeMans race car with FSI technology up to 2005. Therefore, it’s no wonder that it is also very much in demand in its high-performance street version. The Audi R8 4.2 FSI quattro takes off with an impressive 420 horsepower and hits the 100 km/h mark in 4.6 seconds, reaching a top speed of 301 km/h. That tops the first-generation Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro: with its ten cylinders, which also give the Audi A6 its amazing 525 hp, and needing only 3.9 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h. The R8 Spyder first came out in 2010, underwent a facelift in 2012 and, after engine-overhauling, now boasts up to 560 ps.
Larger and faster – the second generation of the Audi R8
The second generation of the Audi R8 has been produced since summer 2015. Following the new Audi R8 coupe was the roadster in 2016. Notable: the sports car now has a wider and larger appearance, yet weighs around 50 kilograms less than its predecessor. The highly sought-after R8 models now come equipped with 10-cylinder induction engines and have engine performances that range from 540 hp to 610 hp in the top model.
