595 × 394

Audi has created the most performance-oriented R8 model ever produced, with limited production at 10 units for the United States. Every 2018 Audi R8 V10 comes with the Coupe Competition package and is equipped with all of the available Audi Sport performance parts which portray the brand's most performance-oriented production model. 


The R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition package offers improved performance aspects such as reduced vehicle weight, along with increased downforce as well through the full carbon fiber aero kit. The full carbon fiber aero kit offers an aggressive appearance, along with the increased downforce doubled in comparison to an R8 V10. This package has decreased 2.2 pounds of vehicle weight with the assistance of titanium backing plates being used on the carbon ceramic brake pads. 


Another example of Audi revealing motorsport technology is through the 20-inch fully milled wheels with a matte black finish, which are installed and resemble the design of the R8 GT4. This additional aspect saved 26.4 pounds of vehicle weight as well.
