New 2017 Audi R8 in Atlanta

2017 Audi R8: An Automotive Masterpiece

Audi engineers have spent decades mastering the technology that can take a few seconds-or even a few hundredths of a second-off a 0-60 time. With the 2017 Audi R8, drivers from Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Decatur, and Chamblee can see the culmination of a vision started by Audi engineers and venerated automotive designers like Jörg Bensinger, the mastermind behind the design and development of the brand's world-renowned quattro® all-wheel drive.

The engineering philosophy behind the all-new Audi R8 emulates the power characteristics of a rear-wheel drive vehicle, but adds the unique ability to send up to 100% of its available torque to the front axle when driving conditions require it. It's just one of the many ways the R8 combines concept-car style with the function of an everyday vehicle. The R8's electronically-controlled hydraulic multi-plate clutch, the addition of torque vectoring and quattro integration within the Audi drive select system are the results of fine-tuning the brand's already visionary engineering.

In the latest R8 build, Audi engineers have stripped away weight to give the car a stronger, substructural chassis that relies on aluminum, carbon and other innovations to carry the performance of a supercar. This multi-material space frame  is a new application of the R8's iconic track-inspired chassis. It lessens the static and dynamic weight of the vehicle, and increases rigidity by 40 percent for a more dynamic drive. After all, when it comes to luxury performance, it's structural engineering that helps build soul.
