However, the RWS has a claimed 0-100kph time of 3.6 seconds, 0.2 seconds slower than the R8 V10coupe quattro in coupé though the claimed top speed is the same 318kph.
One of the most anticipated cars right now is the next Audi R8 V10 and it is easy to understand why. But we're sure it makes up for this every time you turn in a sharp corner. Currently, every performance Audi comes with some variant of quattro.
The Audi R8 RWS has the same 397kW/540Nm mid-mounted 5.2-litre V10, but ditches the front wheel driveshafts to send all its power exclusively to the rear.
The mid-mounted V10 makes 532 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque, propelling the Coupe to 62 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds and the Spyder in 3.8.
For the first time in its history Audi is about to release a rear-wheel drive sports vehicle, and we might need to sit down because it's a rear-driven R8. Dubbed the R8 V10 RWS, it is "made for purists" according to Audi Sport's recently departed CEO Stephan Winkelmann.
In Germany the Audi R8 coupe V10 RWS will cost 140 thousand euros, in the open supercar estimated 153 thousand euros.
"A limited-edition special model for customers with an appreciation for essential driving enjoyment, the R8 V10 RWS is an absolutely exclusive offer".
Acceleration is dulled slightly compared to all-wheel drive models, the R8 RWS managing 0-100km/h in a still-brisk 3.7sec (Spyder 3.8sec) on its way to a top speed of 320km/h (Spyder 318km/h).
In its RWS avatar, the R8 coupe weights 1,509kg - which is 50kg less than the Quattro version, while the convertible saves about 40kg over its all wheel drive sibling. The sideblades are also split in color, with the upper half being gloss black and the bottom half being body color. Like the R8 LMS GT 4, the engineering of which likely made this auto possible, buyers can opt for unique red graphics running over the hood, roof, and rear end.
Only 999 units of the Audi R8 RWS will be produced. A revised chassis set-up and control systems allow drivers to perform "controlled drifts" when in the "Dynamic" driving mode and with the electric stabilisation control system set to "Sport".
Inside, the rear-wheel drive model comes with standard sport seats in leather and Alcantara.
