AUDI R8 is World Performance Car
The Audi R8 Coupé has been named “World Performance Car 2016”. The World Car Awards took place at the New York Auto Show. With a total of four awards, the R8 is the most successful model in World Car Awards. The previous R8 had already won two World Performance Car awards (2008, 2010) and a World Car Design of the Year award ( 2008) in the prestigious competition.
The second generation of the high-performance sports car from Audi was able to win over the jury of 73 leading automotive journalists from around the world. This makes the R8 a winner on the road and the racetrack - it contains the know-how acquired from the brand’s many wins in motor racing. The new Audi R8 Coupé will be launched in South Africa in July this year.
