The Audi R8 has become the modern benchmark in style and performance for Supercars. Junior drivers love it and are always blown away by the power, performance and luxury that this amazing car offers. It is the ultimate ride.
Powered by a 4.2 litre FSI V8 the Audi R8 transfers its 414 brake horsepower via an R-tronic semi automatic gearbox and the famous Quattro all wheel drive system. With a history directly linked to Audi’s Le Mans car, it comes as no surprise that the R8 has fantastic performance figures, It rockets from nought to sixty in under four and a half seconds and has a top speed of 187 miles per hour, However, it’s when those figures are combined with the handling and poise that this car displays on the track that you come to realise how special this supercar is. No wonder Ironman chose the R8 as his preferred mode of transport.
