2008 Audi R8 To Start at $109,000

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Audi said its new 2008 R8 sports car will be priced from $109,000 when it arrives this fall at U.S. dealerships. The sticker on the two-seater is more than $16,000 higher than the price on an Audi S8, despite the fact that the performance sedan has two more seats, two more cylinders and 30 more horsepower.

The midengine R8 is powered by a 4.2-liter V8 rated at 420 horsepower. In comparison, the S8 features a 450-hp 5.2-liter V10. Because the R8 is considerably lighter than the S8, it will be the fastest production Audi ever, with 0-60 acceleration in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 187 mph.

In addition to the automatic gearbox, stand-alone options on the R8 include a 465-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system, navigation system, Alcantara headliner, metallic pearl paint, choice of carbon-fiber or body-color side blades and a leather package that includes leather-covered dash and interior trim. An optional Convenience Package bundles a rear backup camera, hill-hold assist, six-disc CD changer and auto-dimming outside mirrors.
