Updated R8 arrives

Posted on: June 21st, 2013


Euromobil has launched the updated Audi R8 in V10 guise. It now comes with a quicker S-Tronic twin-clutch gearbox which replaces the outgoing R-Tronic automated manual transmission.

The new R8′s 5.2-litre V10 engine puts out a staggering 525hp and 530Nm of torque. Paired with the newer and slicker transmission, the R8′s 0-100kph time has been shaved by 0.3 seconds. It now does the century sprint in 3.6 seconds all the way to a top speed of 314kph.


Features bundled with the new R8 include 19-inch 10-spoke wheels, high-performance ventilated steel brake discs (ceramics are optional), magnetic ride adaptive damping, ESP with sports mode which can be fully deactivated if desired and all-LED headlights. On the inside, the R8 gets a Fine Nappa Leather upholstery with a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio setup paired to Audi’s MMI navigation system.

Prices for the updated R8 start at RM1,250,000 on-the-road before add-ons. Also included is a 4-year, 120,000km warranty.
