Audi Naples Exclusive // Limited Edition RWS R8

Behold, the first-ever R8 with a rear-wheel drivetrain. Limited to just 999 production units, we have been lucky enough to see two of them come and go. But not before we snagged some photos of course.

The R8 RWS is now slotted as the entry R8, with a base price of $138,700. You can fully outfit this car for just $154,200 (standard paint option), less than the base price of the V10 quattro coupe.

Still, this limited edition model packs the punch we’ve come to love from the R8:

  • 5.2-liter FSI dual-injection V10
  • 532 hp/398 lb-ft of torque
  • Sport-tuned fixed suspension
  • Acceleration in 3.7 seconds
