2015 R8 Competition is the Most Potent Production Audi
2015 Audi R8 Competition which is one of the most powerful and fastest production cars is set to debut at the upcoming 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. And this is what we needed today to pump some excitement in our blood. This aggressive car will be only an exclusively available in the United States and will go to no more than 60 lucky customers. The strictly limited edition R8 Competition redefines the iconic R8 with 570 hp (420 kW) peak performance and racing-inspired, lightweight matte carbon elements.
In fact, this power rating makes the newcomer the closest road car to R8 LMS ultra race car. The R8 Competition is powered by the 5.2L V10 engine which is coupled to seven-speed S tronic transmission. The car also features a sport exhaust system with black high-gloss tailpipes.
This is a perfect combination, which will accelerate the car from standstill to 60 mph in mere 3.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 199 mph. Note that these numbers make the R8 Competition the fastest R8 ever offered.
Audi has thought about the exterior and gave it striking matte carbon exterior elements consisting of a fixed rear spoiler, engine bay, mirror housings, flics, side blades, front spoiler and rear diffusor. Of course, thanks to the utilization of the lightweight material, the weight of the car is lowered which results in greater downforce.
Gloss black wheels with 305 cross-section rear tires and ceramic brakes with anodized red brake calipers make a stunning contrast to the matte carbon fiber elements. The interior of the car is also adorned by carbon carbon fiber. The material can be seen on the center console and illuminated "R8 competition" door sill inlays.
Since a total of 60 units will be produced, customers can begin ordering 2015 Audi R8 Competition as of early November. The deliveries are expected to beginning in 2015. We definitely dig this unique vehicle and the fact that it has brought some of the most important characteristics of the R8 to a new level. What are your thoughts on this?
