Although seen more as a premium brand, the German automotive manufacturer decides to dabble in supercars with the Audi R8. When Audi announced the Audi R8 in 2006 it took the motoring world by storm, although with Lamborghini under its control, perhaps it shouldn’t have been such s surprise. This two-seater sports car is a dream to own and drive, lauded by experts of the press no end. And now, it’s a dream that can be fulfilled with this 2015 Audi R8 V10 coupe. This low-mileage example has just 7,700 miles on the clock and is available in Massachusetts.
The Audi R8 is currently in its second and most recent generation. It is loosely based on the Lamborghini Huracan, while the official designation is Audi R8 Type 4S. The exterior of this R8 is finished in a color with an enigmatic name: Mythos Black Metallic — befitting of such an enigmatic car. It sits on a set of OEM 10-spoke wheels finished in silver with the Audi logo on the center caps. Behind the wheels lie black-painted brake calipers with the R8 logo printed. The Audi R8 features a panoramic view of the engine bay which is located on the back through a toughened glass lid reminiscent of the Ferrari F40, although the R8’s version is illuminated. The interior is decked in black leather, including the sports seats, which have power and massage functions. The multifunction sports steering wheel is wrapped in Alcantara and is host to the paddle shifters. The instrument cluster lays behind the steering wheel and features an RPM meter with the R8 logo and the speedometer with the V10 logo. The center console holds a multi-touch navigation screen, A/C controls, and the gear shifter which is finished in chrome.
The first-generation R8 was available in either a V8 or a V10 whilst the second-gen only had the latter option. Thus, this 2015 Audi R8 coupe is equipped with a 5.2L V10 churning out 533hp of power. Transmission is handled by the very capable 7-speed DL800 S-Tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission. 0-62 mph has been clocked in at 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 198 mph. Ventilated and slotted disc brakes on all four wheels help the R8 in achieving impressive stopping power.
