Audi bringing something for everybody at Frankfurt

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.

Remembering the September 11 attacks
Four passenger airliners were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists with the intention of flying them into landmark buildings. A fiery blasts rocks the World Trade Center after being hit by two planes September 11, 2001 in New York City.

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.

Many are blaming her friends for leaving her alone with strangers, others are saying it was a setup for a small amount of $200. The death is under investigation by Rosemont police. "It's unbelievable", Martin said. "The freeze door is heavy".

Short for Rear Wheel Series, the R8 RWS comes with the same 533bhp 5.2-litre mid-mounted naturally aspirated (non-turbocharged) V10 engine fitted to the standard R8. The 610 horsepower version from the R8 Plus isn't an option.

The Ingolstadt-based marque is also going to present the hotly anticipated RS4 Avant, and it won't be Audi Sport's only model at the venue - as a teaser has come to confirm the R8 is going rear-wheel drive.

Also, it has an estimated price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 14.95 and a trailing 12-month price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 17.18. The stock of Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) earned "Equal Weight" rating by Barclays Capital on Friday, November 11.

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.
