Yeah, that blur with the sharp yet fluid profile you noticed out of the corner of your eye as it blasted past you in milliseconds. Not Italian, you know that. No, this is something else. Muscular. Resonant. Stylish. The Audi R8. A supercar, yes, but it's not unapproachable, if you can find one in captivity. When still, it's an eye-catching, design-forward sculpture. When unleashed, its 430-hp V8 or 525-hp V10 makes hearts beat harder with just a single rev. But it's the blur on the road that will make the most lasting impression.
The Audi R8 utilizes three radiators hidden behind the front fascia to suck in air and help keep the engine at its optimum running temperature: one in the center, and one on each side of the of the Audi Singleframe® grille. Intake grilles serve to give the Audi R8 its bold front, while the sideblades feed the engine the air it needs for breathtaking performance.
The design of the Audi R8 goes far beyond its electric exterior. The vehicle's proportions greatly aid the performance of the vehicle. The low center of gravity-a result of the mid-mounted engine design-and the wide wheelbase give the vehicle its iconic look and help keep you in control on both the highway and the raceway. It's a balance, expressively delivered, and designed for the boldest tastes.
When you enter the Audi R8, there is a lot of top-flight power surrounding you. But upon further inspection, you'll find that, despite the bold appearance of the R8, there is a sophisticated calm inside. Beautifully appointed double-stitched leathers and finely crafted inlays hint at both sport and luxury, further expressing the natural duality of the R8. It's unadorned, but never less than luxurious.
