2018 Audi R8 V10 RWS
14 mpg city / 25 mpg hwy / 18 mpg combined
Audi’s V10-powered, mid-engine sports car meets the 25-mpg bar thanks to a new rear-wheel-drive version for 2018. At the Frankfurt Motor Show, Audi announced the addition of the R8 V10 RWS (Rear-wheel Series) to the R8 lineup — the first rear-wheel-drive R8 ever offered. All previous R8 models have quattro all-wheel drive, but the limited-edition R8 V10 RWS follows the layout of the rear-wheel-drive R8 LMS race car. Limited to total production of 999 vehicles, the R8 V10 RWS will be offered in both Coupe and Spyder versions. Powered by a 540-horsepower 5.2-liter V10 combined with a 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission, the R8 V10 RWS is 110 pounds lighter than the quattro version and rated at 25 mpg highway — 3 mpg better than the V10 quattro rated at 22 mpg highway.
