You can enter an elite club with this Audi.


One of the hallmarks of Audi is its quattro all-wheel-drive system, of which we are huge fans. While we love how quattro feels and performs, the Audi R8 RWS is still a compelling sports car. If you don’t know, RWS stands for Rear Wheel Series, a limited run of only 999 Audi made in 2018. Of those, a mere 320 were offered to customers in the United States, so this is a rare car.

As you can see through the back glass, this R8 RWS comes with the hard-hitting 5.2-liter V10 engine which hits like a velvet sledgehammer. Paired with a 7-speed automatic S tronic transmission, acceleration is so quick you need those contoured and highly-supportive seats. This is a rare chance to feel how a rear-wheel-drive Audi handles on the road or track, something most people know nothing about and likely never will.

To match that aggressive performance is more than just the usual sleek Audi R8 appearance. This car rides on 20-inch forged wheels with an Anthracite finish, which looks fantastic with the Ibis White paint. An RWS Stripe in Misano Red signals to those in the know exactly what this car is from a distance.

More than just a performance vehicle, in true Audi fashion this R8 RWS features loads of luxuries. As we already mentioned, the seats are wonderful and come with 18-way power adjustments so you can get everything just so. There’s also leather upholstery, Alcantara headliner, flat-bottom steering wheel, and more. This car comes with the Carbon Interior Package and Premium Package, too.

Not only is this 2018 Audi R8 RWS a rare performance powerhouse, it shows just 9,500 miles on the odometer, so it’s been lightly used. That explains why the exterior and interior both look like new in the photos. A car like this could be a wise investment. Check out the listing now on Motorious.
