Audi R8: Arrived in Australia

Audi R8
The Audi R8 has finally arrived down under. Enjoy the car!
The R8 is powered by a high-revving 4.2-litre V8 FSI engine with 309kW and 430Nm, it will go from 0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds. On paper, the R8 should be able to steal some sales from the similarly priced Aston Martin V8 Vanquish.

Audi Australia’s Managing Director, Joerg Hofmann, says the R8’s introduction will help boost the company’s profile in Australia.

“The Audi R8 will become an icon for Audi and albeit niche, this is a car that clearly embodies our Vorsprung durch Technik (progress through technology). It will be instrumental in further boosting our brand image and awareness in this market,” Mr Hofmann said.
