2022 Audi R8 V10 performance RWD

Even more power and driving enjoyment – that’s what the word “performance” stands for at Audi Sport. The new R8 V10 performance RWD is available as both a Coupé and Spyder with 20kw more and joins the R8 V10 performance quattro in the R8 lineup. The rear-wheel drive mid-engine sports car offers driving thrills with a whopping 419 kW and gains new technology highlights such as bucket seats, dynamic steering, CFRP stabiliser, and ceramic brakes.

The Audi R8 V10 performance RWD (rear wheel drive) is the new high-performance flagship among Audi’s production sports cars with rear-wheel drive. “With its rear-wheel drive derived from the LMS GT4 race car and its unfiltered dynamic performance, the Audi R8 V10 RWD immediately wowed our customers. Now it is being launched with 30 PS and 10 Nm more, taking driving enjoyment to a whole new level,” said Sebastian Grams, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH.

Top speed of 329 km/h

The mid-engine sports car catapults itself and the driver from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds (3.8 seconds for the Spyder) and reaches a top speed of 329 km/h (327 km/h for the Spyder). At the heart of the new R8 is the familiar naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 FSI engine with its incomparable sound, lightning-fast response, and immense accelerating power. In the R8 V10 performance RWD (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 13.0 – 12.9 combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 298 – 294), the engine delivers 419 kW (570 PS) and a maximum of 550 newton meters of torque, which is transmitted to the rear wheels via a seven-speed S tronic transmission. That’s 10 newton meters more torque than the Audi R8 V10 RWD. A mechanical limited-slip differential distributes the drive torque to match the driving situation, ensuring that the car has optimum traction, even on wet roads. As with all R8s, its body is built out of aluminum and, to a large extent, carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) in the Audi Space Frame (ASF) design. As a result, the Coupé version of the R8 V10 performance RWD weighs just 1590 kilograms, the Spyder version 1695 kilograms.
