2017 Audi R8: Redesign Info, Pricing, Release Date

January 29, 2016
Other Model Years»

The Audi R8 will be completely redesigned for the 2017 model year. Much like the Q7 crossover that recently became available, Audi has decided to skip the 2016 model year altogether. The new car has been updated through and through with a stiffer platform, a powerful V10 engine and performance model, and updated specs aimed at seriously impressing drivers on the race track.

Power will come from a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. It will produce 540 hp with 398 lb-ft of torque, enough to move the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.

The range-topping V10 Plus model will make 610 hp with 413 lb-ft, with a 0 to 60 mph time of 3.2 seconds. Audi says the car will be 77 lbs lighter than the base model and feature beefier specs such as standard ceramic brakes and racing shell seats. It will have a top track speed of 205 mph.

The R8 chassis uses technology influenced by the brand's racing division. A unique version of the automaker's Quattro all-wheel drive system making use of a multi-plate clutch and torque vectoring is able to transfer up to 100 percent of available torque to the front axle when required. The composition of the chassis involves up to 13% carbon fiber for weight savings and enhanced rigidity. Audi says the new car will be up to 40% more rigid than the outgoing model, with an impressive 143 lb cut in weight on the base V10. Audi says the car's rigidity has been increased by up to 40%.

Expect a full review closer to launch.

Pricing & Release Date

Official pricing for the R8 V10 will start at $164,150 with destination, $9,000 more than base pricing for a comparable 2015 model equipped with the V10.

The top-spec R8 V10 Plus will start at $191,150, or $16,400 higher than the outgoing model.

The 2017 Audi R8 is currently available for pre-order and is expected to begin arriving in Spring 2016.
