2021 Audi R8 Coupe 5.2 V10 RWD Specs

Audi R8 Coupe
Change Trim:
Change Year:

The RWD version of the 2021 R8 may appear to be the lairier of the two offerings on paper due to its rear axle getting all of the power but it’s also the more luxurious offering. It comes standard with extended leather upholstery, adaptive damping on the suspension, and less power. Even so, it will sprint from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, finally running out of puff at 201 mph. For most people, this will be the ideal choice. Fun, comfort, and style combine in one relatively affordable package here, but the hardcore among us will happily forgo some luxuries to have the fastest model.
