Special features for 2011
The Audi R8 operates in an exclusive but highly competitive supercar segment, and it excels there. Against the Ferraris and Lamborghinis of the world, the mid-engined German marvel offers amazing V8 or V10 power, perfectly balanced handling, all-wheel-drive sure-footedness and head-turning looks. And all of this comes at a price considered a bargain compared to its Italian rivals. With an all-new R8 Spyder model for 2011, Audi has raised the bar once again, and driving purists may have to purchase one of each just to make themselves happy.
A sports car bred with quattro all-wheel drive, the 2011 Audi R8 enters its first full year as either a coupe or a convertible Spyder body style. Limited to only 20 car per day of production, the two-seat supercar's performance is highlighted through the choice of two engines. The 2011 Audi R8 entry-level engine is a 4.2 liter V-8 creating 420 horsepower. Providing a much more spirited launch through 0 to 60 times in only 3.7 seconds, a 5.2 liter V-10 powerplant charges the 2011 Audi R8 with 525 horsepower. Both engines can be fitted with either a fun-loving 6-speed manual gearbox or an optional 6-speed R-Tronic sequential automatic transmission. While heavily compelling drivers with a nearly 195 mile per hour top speed, 14 and 14.4 inch ventilated disc brakes, Audi magnetic ride and Electronic Stabilization Control regulates the handling of the 2011 Audi R8. Inside the 2011 R8, automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity and 10-way power seats confirm within the interior. On the upper scale Audi R8 5.2 supercar, fine Nappa leather sport seating and Audi's MMI Navigation Plus is added to the standard features list. For 2011, the Audi R8 Spyder can now be purchased with the 4.2 liter V-8 engine.
