Thrilling performance.

The V10-engines of the new Audi R8 Coupé.

The 5.2 FSI is available in two variants: one with 397 kW and another sporting 449 kW. The sound of the naturally aspirated V10 engine, whose maximum torque is available at 6,500 rpm, has become even fuller and sharper.

The new generation of the Audi R8 utilises the latest development of the ten-cylinder engine. With its spontaneous throttle response and high-revving, dominant engine note, the naturally aspirated 5.2 FSI engine is enough to give you goosebumps. The V10 engine offers even more power and torque than before. Controllable flaps in the Audi sport exhaust system enhance the characteristic sound.

Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI

In the R8 V10, the 5.2 FSI engine develops 397 kW of power from its 5,204 cc displacement and 540 Nm of torque at an engine speed of 6,500 rpm. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 3.5 seconds, with a maximum speed of 320 km/h.

Audi R8 V10 plus 5.2 FSI

The R8 V10 plus is even more powerful and is in fact, the fastest series-production Audi of all time. It develops 449 kW of power and its maximum torque of 560 Nm is available at 6,500 rpm. The performance figures are equally impressive: 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds, and a top speed of 330 km/h.

S tronic

In both engine variants, power is transmitted to a rapid-shifting seven-speed S tronic transmission. The S tronic has three automatic modes and can also be controlled manually. Shift commands are transmitted electronically via shift-by-wire technology. The standard launch control system manages full-throttle acceleration from a standing start.
