The Audi R8 (Typ 42) is a mid-engine, 2-seater sports car, which uses Audi's trademark quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. It was introduced by the German automaker Audi AG in 2006.
The car was exclusively designed, developed, and manufactured by Audi AG's high performance private subsidiary company, quattro GmbH, and is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform. The fundamental construction of the R8 is based on the Audi Space Frame, and uses an aluminium monocoque which is built around space frame principles. The car is built by quattro GmbH in a newly renovated factory at Audi's 'aluminium site' at Neckarsulm in Germany.
In 2005, Audi announced that the name of the successful Audi R8 race car would be used for a new road car in 2007, the Audi R8, based on the Audi Le Mans quattro concept car, appearing at the 2003 International Geneva Motor Show, and 2003 Frankfurt International Motor Show. The R8 road car was officially launched at the Paris Auto Show on 30 September 2006. There was some confusion with the name, which the car shares with the 24 Hours of Le Mans winning R8 Le Mans Prototype (LMP). 6-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx described the R8 as "the best handling road car today". The Audi R8 is used as a safety car in Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters and British Superbike Championship racing series.
The R8 is due to be replaced with a brand new model in calendar year 2014. The highest output version of Audi's new 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine is expected to power the new car. This engine is scheduled to be previewed as a detuned version in the 2012 Audi S8—with 518 hp (386 kW) on tap. In the R8 application it is expected to produce about 600 hp. Combined with an approximate 200 lb (91 kg) weight loss, the new R8 is expected to compete well with the new Porsche 997 twin turbo model and will likely perform significantly better than the current R8 GT with a 0--60 mph time in 3.2 seconds and a quarter mile in less than 11 seconds. A dual clutch automated gearbox will be offered for the first time.

This video shows 2 amazing cars tuned by Prior Design: the Audi R8 PD GT850
Prior Design and the Porsche Panamera turbo PRIOR600. The R8 PD GT850 is without a doubt
one of the most outlandish Audi R8 tunes currently on the market.
Prior Design offers a more muscular appearance to the Porsche Panamera turbo "Prior600″. The diffuser has been
redesigned and reveals a new Exhaust.
Precisely the Exhaust system was
changed by the German tuner, up to now a sports Exhaust system in stainless steel.
At the parking lot of the famous Nürburgring gas station, I have recorded
this amazing supercar duo: the Aston Martin DBS and a Lamborghini Gallardo
LP570-4 Spyder Performante. You might be remember the onboard video of the
Lamborghini, in this video you can hear the Exhaust sounds of both cars.
Which one is your favorite: the Aston Martin DBS or the Lamborghini

2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack vs 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus! - Head 2 Head Episode 33
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Carlos Lago pits the 2014
Nissan GT-R Track Pack against the 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus. Performance
wise, both these all-wheel drive monsters represent the cream of the crop
from their respective manufacturers. Nissan's GT-R comes out of the gate
swinging with it's track pack, but the R8 packs a twin-clutch transmission
as well as more power than previous R8's. In between some dynamic testing &
canyon carving, Randy Pobst weighs in with his two cents as he joins Carlos
at the Streets of Willow racetrack. Does Audi's V-10 goliath have what it
takes to topple the legendary "Godzilla"?
