High Performance Unleashed: Introducing the New Audi R8 Coupé V10 GT RWD
The epitome of power and precision, the Audi R8 has captivated car enthusiasts for over a decade. Now, Audi Sport GmbH is proud to unveil the latest addition to the R8 family: the Audi R8 Coupé V10 GT RWD. This exclusive super sports car redefines high performance with its unparalleled power, enhanced driving dynamics, and exquisite design.
Unleashing Unrivaled Power
At the heart of the Audi R8 Coupé V10 GT RWD lies a 5.2-liter, naturally aspirated V10 engine that pushes the boundaries of performance. With an impressive output of 456 kW (620 PS), this powerhouse stands as the most powerful rear-wheel drive unit ever created by Audi. This exceptional power ensures an adrenaline-inducing driving experience like no other.
To complement the sheer power of the V10 engine, Audi Sport GmbH has equipped the R8 GT with a new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. This cutting-edge transmission enables lightning-fast shifts, allowing drivers to unleash the full potential of the car with seamless precision.
Unleash Your Driving Experience
The Audi R8 Coupé V10 GT RWD offers an unprecedented level of control and customization with its innovative Torque Rear driving mode. This mode allows drivers to tailor their driving experience by selecting their desired level of ESC (Electronic Stability Control) support. By enabling controlled and precise oversteering, the Torque Rear mode allows drivers to push the limits of performance while maintaining optimal control.
The Torque Rear mode features seven characteristic curves, providing a range of options for slippage control on the rear axle. From minimal slippage in Level 1 to more pronounced slippage in Level 7, drivers can fine-tune their driving experience to suit their preferences and driving conditions. All it takes is a simple adjustment using the control satellite conveniently located on the steering wheel.
Audi Sport GmbH has spared no detail when it comes to the design of the Audi R8 Coupé V10 GT RWD. Paying homage to the first generation of the R8 GT, this special edition boasts a range of exclusive exterior and interior features that set it apart from its predecessors.
The exterior design of the R8 GT is characterized by its distinctive sequential numbering, special light alloy wheels, and a Carbon Aerokit developed in the wind tunnel. This aerodynamic package not only enhances the car’s stability on the road but also enables faster cornering speeds, elevating the overall driving experience.
Step inside the cabin of the Audi R8 GT, and you’ll be greeted by a combination of black and red that exudes sportiness and elegance. The interior features red belts, a nod to the first R8 GT, and the R8 bucket seats adorned with the exclusive lettering of the special model. Each R8 GT comes with a unique sequential numbering, displayed prominently in the middle of the selector lever, adding a touch of individuality and exclusivity.
Performance Refined: Lighter and Faster
To further optimize performance, Audi Sport GmbH has implemented various weight-saving measures in the R8 Coupé V10 GT RWD. These measures have resulted in a weight reduction of approximately 20 kilograms (44 lbs), bringing the total weight to 1570 kilograms (3,461 lbs) (without driver).
The lightweight forged wheels, inspired by Audi’s motorsport vehicles, play a crucial role in reducing weight. These exclusive 20-inch, 10-spoke wheels can be paired with high-performance Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires, designed for both road and racetrack use. Additionally, the R8 GT is equipped with a powerful ceramic braking system as standard, further reducing weight and enhancing overall performance.
The R8 GT’s performance is further refined with the inclusion of the performance sports suspension, featuring a carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) anti-roll bar. This lightweight bar, combined with aluminum coupling rod connections, not only reduces weight but also enhances road-holding and cornering dynamics. For those seeking an even sportier driving experience, the optional R8 GT coilover suspension allows for individual adjustments to the trim position, compression, and rebound levels.
