The car manufacturer from Ingolstadt, Audi, has introduced a new special edition of the R8, which is named Audi Sport Performance Parts.
According to the company, this is the best variant of the R8 to date, which thanks to various modifications and better aerodynamics creates a higher downforce.
This model will be produced in just 44 copies, each of them sold at a price of around 225,000 euros.
The aerodynamics of this model is developed in the air tunnel, thanks to which it has sharper edges. On the rear of the car there is a fixed big spoiler and diffuser. There are also restylated thresholds, more pronounced vacuum cleaners as well as openings for air flow and splitter.
Alloy wheels are mounted on it with 20-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Cup 2 tires were installed on it, which made this version easier compared to the standard for eight kilograms. To slow down and stop this “beast”, titanium tiles and discs are made of a combination of carbon fibers and ceramics.
These changes have resulted in the creation of a greater force of force (downforce). Namely, Audi claims that at a speed of 150 km / h it creates 52 kg of thrust, at 330 km / h 250 kg, which is 100 kg more than the standard V10 plus model.
This R8 is available exclusively in the “Misano Red” color with an alkandal-lined wheel and Nappa leather seats. There’s also a reverse camera, Audi’s Smartphone interface, MMI navigation and the fully digital Audi’s cockpit.
Under the hood of this limited edition of the R8, the V10 plus is a 5.2 liter capacity generator that develops 600 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque.
