Not to be sarcastic, what competition Audi is drawing remains out of question. Reportedly, automaker has unveiled a new trim of flagship called “R8 Competition” ahead of Los Angeles Motor Show, which it said to be the most powerful production-specific Audi ever. The confusion over the statement is, rather than gearing-up for rivalry outside, Four-Ringed automaker has itself envied the other in-house trim-levels of model plate. Though, prudential of buyers will also be taken care of for further increasing enmity, which the company has said to strictly build it in limited examples of 60. They will be sold in international markets, and order books are bound to open during November.
Let’s talk about details, under the devilish avatar from predecessor this German sports machine equips a 5.2-litre V10 that will generate 570PS of max power and sprints 0-100 in 3.2 seconds. A seven-speed S tronic is engulfed to send traction to all four wheels, which probably a due to Audi Quattro system, the top-speed is tanked to rate on the speedometer at 320kmph.
Aforesaid technicalities had mentioned reasons behind R8 Competition as the fastest production specific Audi till date on the production line. How about a visual appeal? That’s referred by use of carbon for components like fixed rear wing, side blades, mirror caps, rear diffuser and front spoiler. The rest is taken care by 19-inch alloy wheels, a ceramic disc and red-colored brake calipers.
The same feat of Audi-ism is trailed inside the cabin too. Carbon trims and lighted door sill with “R8 Competition” badges touch the right string of design, where the rest of space lays in the shackle of buyer’s customization programme.
Hence, there aren’t details of price tag, but a fat check-book is advisable to be carried when heading towards the booking space.
