The Audi R8 swansong. More power before the V10 goes forever silent

Singapore – With Audi committing to an all-electric production line by 2026, the R8 supercar is in its last phases of production. But the celebrated German supercar will go out with a heavier roar… 30hp more that is.

The Audi R8 V10 performance RWD is truly the last of its kind, taking its rear drivetrain development from the successful LMS GT4 race car. The 5.2 litre natural-breathing V10 now produces 570hp and 550Nm (10Nm more than before), punching this through a quick shuffling 7-ratio S tronic transmission. The RWD R8 reaches the benchmark 100km/h in 3.7 seconds, and maxes out at 329hp.

On the greener side of things, the supercar’s V10 boasts cylinder deactivation and coasting at idle with the engine running.

The last R8 is not only built for track magic, with Sport mode activated, the suspension and control systems are designed to turn this into a drift machine.

The reworked R8 features new bucket seats, a more responsive and accurate electromechanical power steering, a carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) stabiliser on the front axle, and high(er) performance ceramic brakes.

The last R8 can be optioned in ten available colours, including Ascari Blue Metallic, which was once unique to the R8 V10 performance quattro. It is available now at Audi Centre Singapore, with pricing from $771,036, including money for COE and VES penalties*.
