Fancy seeing the new R8 up close? The Audi Centre in Ballsbridge will officially open Ireland’s first and exclusive Audi Sport brand to the public on Friday 6th November. Audi Sport will specialise in the sale and servicing of Audi’s high-end RS range, including the all-new Audi R8; its flagship supercar. At the V.I.P. opening on Thursday 5th, Audi Sport will premiere the all-new Audi R8 Coupé and showcase the latest RS models, such as the all-new RS3, new RS6 and RS7. The RS range—born on the racetrack and built for the road—combines speed, lightweight design, powerful engine design and the very latest in cutting-edge technological innovation.
The all-new Audi R8 V10, which retails from €231,500, effortlessly melds a powerful, high-performance engine with lightweight design, with its 5.2 FSI engine; whilst the Audi R8 V10 Plus, with 610bhp, accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 330 km/h. Allison Reede, Head of Business at Audi Centre, said: “The opening of Audi Sport at Audi Centre follows increasing demand for Audi’s high-performance sports range, including the all-new Audi R8 and the RS models. “Audi Sport, the dedicated centre for Audi’s RS range, will allow us to deliver specialist expertise and service capability to our customers in Dublin and across Ireland.”
