1

Audi is now offering a new V10 R8 model with rear wheel drive, instead of the usual all-wheel drive, further diversifying the brands line-up. The removal of the all-wheel drive running gear has produced a weight saving of up to 50 kg, further cementing the cars performance capabilities. The R8 RWS will be a limited edition run, with 999 units produced globally. Each car made will feature a dashboard emblem “1 of 999,” indicating the limited number of units.

“The R8 V10 RWS is made for purists,” said Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Audi Sport GmbH. “A limited-edition special model for customers with an appreciation for essential driving enjoyment, the R8 V10 RWS is an absolutely exclusive offer. With its mid-mounted V10 engine and rear-wheel drive, it successfully brings the driving concept of our R8 LMS racing car to the streets.”
