Weight is not the only issue that the Audi R8 has mastered; space is an area that most sports cars shy away from tackling but the Audi engineers built this car around a 2.65 meter wheelbase. The driver and passenger will never have to be concerned about space or positioning and the narrow A-posts offer excellent view from all vantage points. The design of the R8' body offers a unique blend that makes the interior look bigger on the inside than it appears on the exterior.
Sports cars are at their best when they are lightweight yet powered by high performing engines. They handle differently than your average sedan or family vehicle because their suspension is far more rigid while the car holds the curves at higher speeds. Audi offers a variety of customized suspension options that is just right for your style of driving.
The high performance engine and finely tuned sport suspension is just part of the story. This high performance luxury car also offers a diesel version along with its gasoline powered conventional motor.Consider the fact that the Audi also comes with a four wheel drive as well as automatic transmission along with a six-speed manual and you'll begin to understand why this model is so popular.
A 420 horsepower V8 engine is mounted directly behind the car's cockpit. The engineers at Audi were able to accomplish a 44%/56% front to rear weight ratio to achieve optimum weight distribution in the vehicle. The goal of every sport car driver is to feel the thrill of driving every time they get behind the wheel; the Audi R8 accomplished this goal consistently.
