Rear-wheel-drive Audi R8 RWS announced

Audi вывела на завершающие тесты спортивный универсал RS4

The novelty will receive a 2.9-liter V6 gasoline engine with recoil 450 horsepower

The company has had the rear-wheel drive R8 LMS racing in GT3 competition and, starting next year, in GT4. The company used the drivetrain layout to make its cars victorious in rally and capable in all road conditions.

This is the first Audi R8 road vehicle with rear-wheel drive and the only performance Audi now available that sends power to just two wheels.

The NFL has yet to respond other than issuing a statement disagreeing with the ruling. If granted, he'd be eligible to play while the case works its way through the courts.

It is also worth noting that RWD has always been the way for Audi's rivals - Mercedes and BMW.

As a result of this, the car's 0-62mph time has risen fractionally from 3.5 to 3.7 seconds. A roadgoing homage to the R8 GT3 and GT4, the R8 RWS is the auto that was alluded to months ago by former Lamborghini CEO and current Audi Sport boss Stephan Winkelmann. The V10 is still mated to Audi's seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

It'll be considerably lighter, shedding 110 pounds in comparison to its all-wheel drive companion, according to Audi. The coupe hits 62 in 3.7 seconds, with the Spyder one tenth of a second behind. The grille has a matte black finish, the front and rear air ducts are matte black, and the coupe's upper sideblade is gloss black while the lower blade is body color. The combination of Dynamic mode and Sport ESC now allows the driver to produce controlled drifts. Audi will also apply an optional red racing stripe to the R8 RWS if you want. The coupe starts at 140,000 euros, the Spyder at 153,000 euros.
