2018 Audi R8 V10 plus Competition Package

LIMITED TO 10 UNITS, THE 2018 AUDI R8 V10 PLUS COUPE COMPETITION PACKAGE ARRIVES IN NOVEMBER

2018 Audi R8 V10 plus Competition Package
•Most performance-oriented production R8 model ever produced
•Factory-installed complete range of Audi Sport performance parts
•Full carbon fiber aero kit helps increase downforce

HERNDON, Va., October 17, 2018 –
With limited production at 10 units for the Únited States, each R8 Competition package is preconfigured with all the available Audi Sport performance parts and represents the brand's most performance-oriented production R8 model ever produced.

Optimized performance

The R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition package offers drivers reduced vehicle weight and increased downforce over previous models. Through the use of titanium backing plates for the carbon ceramic brake pads, 2.2 pounds has been saved. The same 20 inch fully milled wheels, similar in design to that of the R8 GT4, represent another example of Audi bringing motorsports technology to the road, and save another 26.4 pounds of weight. The full carbon fiber aero kit not only offers an aggressive look to the R8, but increases downforce. At 150 km/h (93.2 mph), the downforce is doubled compared to an R8 V10 plus Coupe to 52 kg (114.6 pounds). At the top track speed of 315 km/h (196 mph), the downforce is increased by 100 kg (220.5 pounds) to 250 kg (551.2 pounds). The aero kit also helps increase the drag coefficient (Cd = 0.36 to Cd = 0.42). 2018 Audi R8 V10 plus Competition Package
