Keep reading for a detailed overview of the features and specs in store for the 2017 Audi R8 Coupe!
The Audi R8 Coupe is a car that always looks like it’s moving even when standing still. The luxury coupe’s rear end is a feast for the eyes, with its highly unique glass covered engine compartment that allows you to witness the inner workings of the racecar firsthand. Of course, the R8 also maintains its classic trapezoidal front grille, which links the 2017 model to its innovative predecessors.
When it comes to engine options for the R8, Audi offers two. Drivers have the choice between the V10 and the V10 plus; the former delivers 540 horsepower; the latter, 610 horsepower. If you’re a performance car enthusiast, it does not get much better than this!
With that kind of exceptional power, you are going to need exceptional control. That’s where the Audi quattro all-wheel drive system comes into play. The ASF multi-material construction allows for a light chassis that is also rigid. This also helps make for tight and responsive control.
Inside the Audi R8, the technology is as powerful as the V10 engine. The Audi Virtual Cockpit is a configurable display behind the steering wheel that has many telemetric options including, of all things, a g-meter. (They also need those in fighter jets!) Other great interior features include MMI® navigation plus, and an optional Bang & Olufsen® Sound System.
