What’s New for ’09

  • The R8 is now propelled by a naturally aspirated, direct-injection V-10, which generates 525 hp and 391 lb. ft. (530 Nm) of torque, and can accelerate 0-60 MPH (97 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, with a top speed of up to 196 mph (316 km/h) thanks to its 8,700 RPM redline.
  • œIt still features a 6-speed manual transmission as standard equipment, with an available 6-speed sequential Tiptronic with steering-wheel mounted controls. It boasts such features as an all-aluminum body, electronic launch control that limits wheel spin, magnetic ride control, high-performance sport suspension that helps maintain grip at forces up to 1.2g, and an “ideal” 44/56 rear-biased weight distribution.
