Thilling performance. Beautiful design. Pioneering innovation. These are just some of the attributes of this exclusive, two seat, high performance sports car. Boasting more focus and more drive, what makes this luxury vehicle stand out is the thrill of the ride - the pumping of adrenaline increasing the heart rate and the dilation of the eyes of the driver. The thrilling performance of Audi R8 luxury cars has even been turned into a performance piece by artists Onishi Yasuaki from Japan and Sébastien Preschoux from Paris. However, comfort and breathtaking handling are also standout features of this luxury saloon. The Audi R8 is a show-stopping all-rounder, with performance, handling, visual impact and comfort all at the forefront of the design.
The Audi R8 road car was adapted from the successful and hyper-powered Audi R8 race car. The design process began in 2004 with the original prototype designed by Frank Lamberty and Julian Hoenig. After a successful run of field tests in January 2006, the finished product was launched on the 30th September of the same year. The Audi R8 enjoyed a rapturous reception at its official launch in France at the Paris Auto Show. Built at Audi's recently renovated factory in Neckarsulm in Germany, the car was designed, developed and manufactured by Quattro GmbH, and uses an aluminium monocoque which is based on the lauded 'Audi Space Frame' technology. Available with a choice of mid-range engines and with a soft top or traditional roof, the Audi R8 is 50kg lighter than Audi's previous model, making it more nimble on the road. The faster acceleration speed and enhanced, easier handling will also appeal to fans of the Audi sports car brand.
The Audi R8 breaks new ground and pushes boundaries in more ways than one. Not only is it Audi's most powerful road model yet, but it was also the first ever production car to boast full LED headlights for heightened visibility and a safer driving experience.

An Iconic Brand with an Iconic History
Audi's focus has always been on luxury, and this German automobile manufacturer exceeds its own standards every time. The origins of the company date back to the early 20th century and the foundation of the Auto Union in 1932. However, it was in the 1960's that Audi became the brand that is known and loved worldwide today, with the introduction of the Audi F103 series. The name Audi comes from the surname of the company's founder, August Horch - the word means 'listen' in German; translated into Latin it becomes 'Audi'. Their slogan 'Vorsprung durch Technik' (Progress Through Technology) trips off the tongues of ordinary people all over the globe, explaining why Audi is one of the best selling luxury car brands in the world.
