2011 Audi R8 Released

2011 Audi R8

Official specs and pictures of the 2011 Audi R8 has been released.  Lighter and more powerful makes for a monstrous combination and this high performance sports car doesn’t disappoint.  We got a sneak peak at some Audi R8 spy pics awhile back, but the real thing is just as impressive and the Audi lovers should not be disappointed.

The new 2011 Audi R8 produces 560 horsepower, up from 525 from 2010 models.  To keep this agile beast on Weight Watchers most panels were manufactured of carbon fiber instead of aluminum.  Thanks to this change and other weight saving changes the 2011 R8 is an amazing 220 lbs lighter than previous offerings.

According to Audi the new 2011 R8 is capable of a 0-60 time of just 3.6 seconds.  Break neck acceleration and a top speed just shy of 200 mph makes this a toy worthy of any millionaires garage.  Pricing starts at just $256,000.
