Audi R8 Debuts at the Canadian International Autoshow

AJAX, ONTARIO - On the heels of the much anticipated TT Coupe launch in Montreal last month, Audi Canada is pleased to debut the R8 in Toronto at the Canadian International Autoshow.

audi r8Audi has incorporated the name and the genes of the five-time Le Mans winner, the Audi R8, into a spectacular sports car. As the first Audi mid-engined sports car, the R8 combines Audi's experience gained from numerous motorsport triumphs with groundbreaking design and the acknowledged technological expertise of the brand.
The mid-mounted V8 FSI engine, quattro permanent all-wheel drive and Audi Space Frame aluminum body form the basis for truly outstanding driving dynamics. At 7,800 rpm the 4.2-liter engine delivers 420 hp of power output. Peak torque is 317 ft.-lbs. from 4.500 to 6,000 rpm. No less than 90 percent of this maximum torque is maintained consistently throughout a wide engine speed range from 3,500 all the way to 7,600 rpm.
The performance figures are equally impressive: the R8 accelerates from a standstill to 100 kph in 4.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of over 295 kph.

Among the multitude of unique design fixtures found on the R8, the integrated side blade, which is available in three different and distinct styles, allows for greater personalization while giving the body contour and texture.
The aerodynamics experts at Audi have done their work so thoroughly on the R8 that, as an added benefit of its elegant shape, the body actually produces a downforce - unlike many other sports cars. The ability to personalize the vehicle to the customer's personal preferences continues with the interior, where a wide array of options such as the 12 speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, trim options to accent the exterior, and a variety of perfectly accentuated leather colours are available.

Look for the first fortunate Audi R8 customers to be driving on Canadian roads by year's end.
