Super Car



The R8 is Audi’s two-seat, mid-engine sports car that debuted for 2008 powered by a 420-horsepower V8 engine and added a Spyder version and a V10 engine for 2010. The R8 incorporates technology from Audi’s Le Mans-winning R8 prototype to build on its racing success for the street. The production version of the Audi R8 sports car made its debut at the Mondial de l’Automobile in Paris in the fall of 2006, with the dramatic design remaining very true to the Le Mans quattro concept car first seen in 2003. The Audi R8 sports car begins with the classic wide, low stance of a mid-engine exotic but the design is dominated by a signature design element, the “Blade” of carbon fiber on each side, behind the door and in front of the rear wheel—that runs from the roof at an angle over the side air intakes to the rocker panel.
