The R8 competition was developed by Audi to push the boundaries. The special edition is equipped with the same 5.2-liter V10 engine as the R8 LMS and was combined exclusively with the seven-speed S tronic gearbox and a sport exhaust. The 570hp engine allows the R8 competition to reach 100km/h in about 3.2 seconds and a maximum speed of 320km/h, which makes it the fastest ever.

“The limited-edition Audi R8 competition is the closest road car to our R8 LMS ultra race car that has won virtually every race around the world,” said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America.

The R8 competition counts with various details of design which distinguishes it from other R8. Among them are the fixed rear spoiler, the engine bay, the mirror caps, side blades, the front spoiler and rear diffuser which receive carbon matte trim. Thanks to the use of carbon elements Audi was able to reduce the weight of the R8 competition and also increase downforce.

In contrast to the carbon elements the R8 competition gets gloss black wheels and ceramic brakes with anodized red brake calipers.

Inside the R8 competition also receives a treatment in matte carbon fiber, including the center console, and the illuminated door sills engraved with "R8 competition". Because it is a unique vehicle Audi will offer a wide range of colors and trims for each car to be customized depending on the tastes of the customer.

The Audi R8 competition can already be ordered and deliveries should begin in early 2015.
