audi R8 launch

Releasing another monster of a vehicle, Audi recently officially launched the new R8 – a beautifully crafted automobile bred from racing championship DNA and packed with features that will make your head spin.

Don’t believe me? Here are just some of the highlights of the vehicle:

  • mid-engine mounted
  • Quattro technology permanent all wheel drive
  • 32 valve, V8 engine
  • 0-100 kph in 4.6 seconds with 420 horses under the hood and a top speed of about 300 kph
  • FSI technology (the fuel is directly injected into the combustion chamber giving it better engine performance and combustion efficiency)
  • Racing Style cockpit
  • Monoposto cockpit integrated as an autonomous unit (it is laid out as an arc that wraps around the driver)
  • Alcantara leather sport seats
  • Bang & Olufsen Sound System

… and the list goes on and on.

Of course, I can only dream about getting my hands on one of these babies for a test drive, let alone owning one. So till I can actually figure out a way to convince Audi to lend me one of these bad boys, I’ll just continue visiting their website and drool.
