The German brand has discovered the new member of the R8 range – the limited RWS edition which translates as a “rear-wheel drive series”.

The new R8 RWS will be available in Coupe and Spyder versions, but comes exclusively with rear-wheel drive. This special model is intended for customers who appreciate driving pleasure and give less importance to the speed of racing tracks.

The power comes from a 5.2-liter atmospheric V10 petrol engine that produces 540 hp and 540 Nm of torque. According to Audi, the model accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 3.7 seconds, or 0.3 seconds slower than the R8 V10 Quattro, and accelerates to a top speed of 320 km / h. The new Audi R8 RWS is 50 pounds lighter than the standard Quattro model, and weighs a total of 1590 kilos without the driver.

Only 999 copies will be produced from the new R8 RWS.
