Great news! The supercar of the year 2007, the Audi R8 & the legendary 5-time champion Audi R8 Le Mans Racer, are coming to Mauritius!
The two R8s will be showcased at the new Audi Zentrum at RĂ©duit as from the 15th to the 30th December 2008.

So if you are a petrolhead, then this is an once-a-lifetime opportunity not to miss! Grab your camera & roll on! & if you are not a petrolhead, just go there as well!

Update: Exclusive Photos of the Audi R8 (click here)

Just a little background info on the Audi R8s
Audi R8 V8


Top speed - 301 km/h (187 mph)
0-100 km/h - 4.4s
Displacement - 4.2L (4163 cc) V8
Power – 420hp (309kW/414bhp) @ 7,800rpm
Torque – 430Nm
Everyone knows the Audi R8 – in addition to being Iron Man’s preferred car – so no intro required. It’s faster than a normal Gallardo & an Aston Martin DB9 on the Top Gear track. The perfect supercar if you can’t afford a Lamborghini & want to beat the Porsche next-door.

Audi R8 Le Mans Racer


3.6L TSFI V8
Top Speed - 338 km/h
0-100 km/h – variable on car setup
Power – 670hp @ 7,200rpm
The Audi R8 racer is the F1 car of 24h endurance racing. Yes, it’s pure physics at work – but it’s also an engineering wonder. With endurance racing, it’s not the fastest car which wins at the ends of the day, but the fastest & most RELIABLE car. & the R8 is literally designed like a Lego. Everything on that car can be removed within minutes… :)

The successors…
Audi R8 V10 TFSI


There's a new kid on the block... & it's a new Audi R8 - with a bigger & badder V10 engine - the fastest Audi ever! & make no mistake, this is no ordinary V10 - it's the same powerhouse at the heart of Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. Spewing a massive 542hp, the new R8 has all-LED headlights, 19” wheels & more massive side intakes.
The performance of such a monster?
Top speed - 316 km/h (196 mph)
0-100 km/h - 3.9s
Displacement  - 5.2 L (5204 cc) V10
Power - 525hp (386kW/518bhp) @ 8,000 rpm
Torque - 530Nm


Just compare it to the LP560-4 if you still have doubts...
Porsche-killer? Aye aye!

Audi R10 TDI


This is the current Le Mans racer that has replaced the R8. However the R10 is a diesel V12 TDI and has already won the 24h of Le Mans for 3 years in a row.

More to come... ;)
