The 2017 Audi R8 in Pasadena and Los Angeles

Explore the New 2017 Audi R8

Audi R8 returns for the 2017 model year with an all-new design, more power, and lower weight. It's faster, more dynamic, and more advanced than ever before.

Accelerating from 0-60 in 2.6 seconds, the 610-horsepower V10 Plus is the fastest naturally aspirated vehicle Motor Trend magazine has ever tested, outpacing even the original Bugatti Veyron.  Thanks in part to the updated quattro all-wheel drive and the higher output, 5.2L V10, acceleration is enormous, smooth, and sonorous. We implore you to head downtown, lower the windows and drive through Los Angeles's many tunnels in the lowest gear available.

The hand-welded Aluminum Space Frame is now reinforced with carbon fiber. Carbon fiber enhances strength at key areas like the B-pillars, the firewall, and the center tunnel, this increases rigidity by 40% while lowering the space frame's weight by 15%. You can feel the difference when driving this new Audi luxury car across Mulholland Drive, down Coldwater Canyon, or up Angeles Crest Highway. 

The new R8 was designed at the same time, in the same place, as the track only version, the R8 LMS. It isn't based on or a derivation of the R8 LMS. The new R8 shares 50% of its components with a Le Mans winning racecar and it's still at home in the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles's 6,500 miles of road and highways.

The Audi R8 V10 begins at $162,900 while the new V10 Plus starts at $189,900. Each sports the raucous V10 and a host of new features, including the Audi Virtual Cockpit. Each model is available with multiple interior design, carbon fiber, and leather packages available. For more information, contact our knowledgeable Audi Brand Specialists today!
