Based on their LeMans Quattro concept car that was first showcased at the Geneva Motor Show and Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003, the Audi R8 is a supercar powered on a 4163cc V8 mid-engine packing 414 bhp - the very same engine, in fact, that was used in their RS4 B7 model that was in production around the same time.
It first rolled off the production line in 2006, after its showcase at that year’s Paris Motor Show, and has been a firm favourite amongst supercar fanatics of all ages ever since. Part of its popularity is down to it’s rear weighted four wheel drive, with 70% of its power aligned towards the rear wheels, which makes it an ideal drive for track conditions.
It posts some remarkable speed stats too; a maximum speed of 187 mph, and the ability to go from 0 - 60 mph in a scorching 4.4 seconds. At TrackDays, we’re very pleased to offer it for adult and junior drivers to take to the wheel of, with a number of Audi R8 experience days available at a selection of great locations and venues nationwide.
