2012 Audi R8

The first generation of the Audi R8 type 42 ran from 2006 to 2015. The R8 road car was officially launched at the Paris Auto Show on 30 September 2006. Initial models included the R8 4.2 FSI coupé (with a V8 engine) and R8 5.2 FSI coupé (with a V10 engine). The Motorsport variants of the R8 were also subsequently introduced from 2008 onwards. Jacky Ickx, six time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner described the R8 as “the best handling road car today”. The car received a facelift in 2012 and a new model called the V10 Plus was now added to the range. Production of the Type 42 ended in August 2015.
