The Audi R8 preview at Audi City, London for key customers and VIPs followed the car's worldwide launch at the Geneva Motor Show.

Introducing the all-new R8 Coupé V10 RWS

Unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show, it is the first production rear-wheel drive Audi to bring the driving concept of our R8 LMS racing car to the streets. It is 40kg lighter than the V10 quattro Coupé and will do 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds.

The chassis setup and control systems allow controlled drifts if the driver chooses, the electromechanical power steering is completely free of torque steer, enabling precise handling and control.

RWS will come as a limited edition with a global combined Coupé and Spyder volume of only 999 cars. Prices of R8 Coupé RWS will start from £110,000 on the road.
