Set to debut at the upcoming 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, Audi presents the high-performance 2015 R8 Competition. The R8 Competition features a 570hp 5.2L V10 mated to a seven-speed S tronic and a sport exhaust system with black high-gloss tailpipes. This combination results in a 0-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph. Further enhancing the Audi R8 Competition design are matte carbon exterior elements consisting of a fixed rear spoiler, engine bay, mirror housings, flics, side blades, front spoiler and rear diffusor. Gloss black wheels with 305 cross-section rear tires and ceramic brakes with anodized red brake calipers contrast the matte carbon fiber elements. Inside, drivers will find a matte carbon fiber treatment including the center console and illuminated “R8 competition” door sill inlays.
A total of 60 units will be produced at the R8 production facility in Neckarsulm, Germany. Customers can begin ordering the Audi R8 Competition as of early November with deliveries expected as of the beginning of 2015.
