On the heels of Audi’s debut of the R8 LMS GT3 at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, the automaker announced the arrival of the volume version of the automaker’s halo car. The revised 2019 Audi R8 coupe and convertible will go on sale in Europe in early 2019 with sharper styling, an updated engine and a modified suspension.
For 2019, the R8’s V-10 returns and is again available with two outputs. Audi says the new model’s 10-cylinder is amped up and will deliver “almost identical drive technology” to the R8 LMS GT3; that model is good for 585 horsepower. The current 2018 R8 makes 532, 602 or 610 hp depending on the model.
