The new Audi R8 - razor-sharp precision

"Modifications to the chassis ensure greater precision and feedback. Both the optional dynamic steering system and the electromechanical power steering have been re-tuned: The steering response is more direct and precise across the entire speed range. This ensures an optimum steering feel for every driving situation with consistently good contact with the road. In addition to the familiar Audi drive select modes, the R8 V10 performance quattro comes with the Performance mode as standard and three additional programs - dry, wet and snow. These programs adapt the key driving dynamics parameters to the friction coefficient of the road. Thanks to the enhanced electronic stabilization control (ESC), the Audi R8 V10 performance brakes from 100 km/h up to 1.5 meters earlier to a standstill, and from 200 km/h even up to five meters earlier - depending on the external conditions. The new Audi R8 is equipped ex works with 19-inch wheels. As an option, there are 20-inch fully milled wheels in a five V dynamic design with new summer and sport tires. They convey even more precision in handling. For the standard steel discs, Audi supplies red saddles instead of the black painted ones on request. For the ceramic brakes, the calipers are generally finished in gray or red. The stabilizer bar on the front axle can be made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and aluminum on request. This reduces the weight on the front axle by about two kilograms."
