2018 Audi R8 V10 RWS pricing

The rear-wheel drive Audi R8 V10 RWS is coming to Australia in April, with pricing starting at $299,500. Meanwhile, the drop-top will kick off at $321,000 – undercutting its all-wheel drive counterpart by $67,500. The RWS Coupe is also $67,500 less expensive than its all-wheel drive equivalent. According to Audi, the RWS shares 50 per cent of its components with the rear-drive R8 LMS currently competing in GT3 racing. Given the racer is based on the road car, that shouldn't be surprising.
