And Audi is relying on the success made by its R8 LMS GT3 racing car to pursue a new line of performance and enthusiasm which it described as a distinctive rear-wheel driving characteristics experience. A naturally aspirated V10 still powers Audi’s new sports car, which transfers all its oomph to the road through the rear wheels. The vehicle has optimal weight distribution and low center gravity, which it takes full advantage of to provide a distinctive driving dynamics.

These attributes defined a unique character from the car and also reflects the dexterity some customers expect from a supercar.

But the car is slower

The supercar uses R8’s non-plus tune of a 5.2-litre10-cylinder engine which is smaller and delivers up to 533bhp on an enchanting noise at 7,800rpm which is administered through a twin-clutch paddle-shift gearbox. It delivers a peak torque of 398lb ft at 6,500rpm. R8 V10 RWS can sprint from 0 – 62mph (0-100km/h) in just 3.7 seconds. The convertible (Spyder) is a little slower with 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 197mph (317km/h) while the Coupé is 198mph (318km/h), though this is much faster than its non-sportscars like the 2019 Audi A7.
