Audi R8 Range
The R8 heritage
Audi is a brand with a rich and greatly successful history in the world of motorsport. An enviable mixture of determination, expertise, passion and Vorsprung durch Technik has ensured that the four rings of Audi have been first past the finish line in countless motorsporting events of modern times.
Who could forget the Audi quattro rally car which became the archetypal rally car of its time? The first car to use the revolutionary quattro® allwheel-drive technology which resulted in an unforgettable run of victories through the early 1980's. Audi's unwavering commitment to progressive motoring and passion for innovation has seen the success of the quattro® allwheel-drive system transferred into many of the model derivatives available to buy today.
However, it is arguably at Le Mans that Audi has left its greatest legacy to motorsport. Having first entered in 1999, Audi has now won the legendary endurance race an incredibly eight times, with the potential to extend that number of victories in the coming years. Born from this illustrious run of successes at Le Mans was the Audi R8. The pinnacle of everything that is Vorsprung durch Technik and a car that has a lot more in common with it's Le Mans winning race counterpart than simply its name.
