what does progression look like? Power. Performance. Innovation. An Audi earning its rings is a high bar unto itself, but for an Audi Sport car to earn its rhombus,
that’s another story all together. Audi’s 80-year legacy on the track is legendary.
In the days of the Silver Arrows to the rally race conquering Quattro of the 80s
to the R18 e-tron, our success in Motorsports has few peers. Out of 185 races to date,
Audi’s prototypes have achieved 106 victories. In the U.S., the R8 LMS brought us
our first manufacturer’s trophy in 2016. For us, the racetrack is
the pre-development lab for our road car technology. Audi Sport cars are crafted and tested
by the same Motorsport engineers. Every bolt, weld and material scrutinized. Every seam, stitch and click perfected.
Every drive system technology tested at unwavering conditions. For an Audi Sport
car to earn its rhombus, the car must become more than just the sum of its parts.
And in 2017 Audi Sport is making its biggest commitment ever in the U.S.
The all-new R8 Spyder: its 5.2 liter V10 engine beats its predecessor with more
horsepower and a 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds. The all-new RS 3: with a new, more powerful
five cylinder engine can do 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds. The 400 horsepower engine
with 354 pound-feet of torque is also the all-new TT RS, which does 0 to 60 and 3.6 seconds and inherits many systems from the R8. Other manufacturers
innovate to compete on the track. Audi Sport cars compete on the track,
innovate for the road. It’s the mountain each car must climb. The heartbeat that dwells
within every rhombus. A symbol that represents the
unwavering progression of innovation. Born on the track,
built for the road. This is Audi Sport.
