Information About the Audi R8
Based on their LeMans Quattro concept car that was first showcased at the Geneva Motor Show and Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003, the Audi R8 is a supercar powered on a
4163cc V8 mid-engine packing 414 bhp - the very same engine, in fact, that was used in their RS4 B7 model that was in production around the same time.
It first rolled off the production line in 2006, after its showcase at that year’s Paris Motor Show, and has been a firm favourite amongst supercar fanatics of all ages ever since.
Part of its popularity is down to it’s rear weighted four wheel drive, with 70% of its power aligned towards the rear wheels, which makes it an ideal drive for track conditions.
It posts some remarkable speed stats too; a maximum speed of 187 mph, and the ability to go from 0 - 60 mph in a scorching 4.4 seconds.
Cool Facts About the Audi R8
In production for nearly a decade, the Audi R8 was one of the supercar marque’s best selling models in that time, shifting nearly 30,000 units worldwide from 2006 to end of production in 2015, finding great popularity in the European, Asian and North American markets.
The R8 was also best known as being the vehicle of Tony Stark - as played by Robert Downey Jr - in six of the films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe series, including all three Iron Man films, making this model a popular choice in our Movie Car packages, where it can be driven along with other turbo charged stars of the silver screen.
