Audi has revealed the rear-wheel drive (RWD) version of its R8 V10 that has raised the standards on and off the track and has been an immense hit with the all-wheel.
The Audi R8 V10 RWD will come with the same new features as the R8 V10 quattro models.
The Audi R8 V10 RWD will be offered in the Coupe and Spyder versions. The singleframe is broader and flatter, and the slits below the hood remind one of the brand’s icon, the Audi Sport quattro. The new R8 has broader air inlets, front splitter and air outlet grille at the rear.
The diffuser, which is flanked by two oval tailpipes, has moved further up. In the engine compartment, the air filter is situated under a new cover, which is available in a choice of plastic or carbon fibre.

The carbon styling package and, for the Spyder, an extended black styling package are available as an alternative. Kemora gray has been added to the color chart. As an option, the Audi rings and logo are painted in high-gloss black.
On the inside, the driver and passenger sit in sport seats covered in leather and Alcantara.
