From 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h, 9.9 seconds and a top speed of 330 km/h. The Audi R8 naturally-aspirated V10 mid-engine thrills with up to 610 hp of power and responds instantly to throttle inputs. The new Audi R8 is the aerodynamic concept of a race car: it is the dynamic vanguard of Audi – no other car with the four rings is so close to car racing. The all-new Audi R8 V10 engine and V10 plus model are now available at Fouad Alghanim & Sons Automotive Company Audi Kuwait showroom.
“The Audi R8 was and will always be the sports car icon of the four rings,” says Mr. Tarek AlShafie General Manager & Dealer Principal – Audi Kuwait “from the stability and the dynamics of the quattro drive to the engine and the dual-clutch S-tronic transmission without forgetting the sporty sleek design of the lightweight body. The motorsport DNA of the all-new Audi R8 thrills your feelings with the way it drives, the way it sounds and the way it performs. With the all-new MMI, the virtual cockpit and the B&O sound system, it is a race car loaded with entertaining technology.”
Named “2016 World Performance Car” in the World Car Awards, the all-new Audi R8 promises tremendous performance and a highly emotional, dynamic drive. The all-new model is available in two engine versions – with the R8 V10 plus being the most powerful and fastest production Audi ever built. The top version 610 hp naturally-aspirated 5.2 liter V10 mid-engine sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds and has a governed top speed of 330 km/h. Like a race car engine, it has dry dump lubrication – meaning that its characteristic sound is now even fuller, and a sport exhaust system can be installed as an option. The fuel economy has been improved by up to 13 percent in the R8 model series compared to the previous model.
