Audi R8 – production running at top speed

The new Audi R8 has made a flying start, with Audi customers being able to take possession of the company’s sporty top model since the start of June. 1.500 units of the 420 bhp mid-engined two-seater have already found their way to dealers and buyers. Craft-scale production of the R8 is now running at top speed in Neckarsulm: the maximum possible number of 20 vehicles is being produced per day.

It has been possible to order the R8 since September 2006 – and several thousand customers did so without even test-driving their dream sports car. In the German market, the entire production capacity for 2007 is sold out.

Additional wishes for top levels of individuality can now be fulfilled: the Audi exclusive programme from quattro GmbH offers a host of optional extras which give the Audi R8 an even more exclusive look and feel. For example, a range of leather packages in high-quality fine nappa leather or Alcantara/leather allied with carpet and headlining in fine materials with exclusive colours. A tailor-made offer for the R8 is a five-piece luggage set in high-grade leather, which is colour-coordinated with the interior of the Audi R8 ordered.
