Audi Made This Rear-Wheel Drive For A Change

Audi loves AWDs or All-wheel-Drives if you like. Therefore, when one of its cars is specifically labeled RWW (Rear Wheel Series), it calls for the attention of car lovers to give a closer and keen look at what is on offer. The Audi R8 RWS is what we have on our plate right now.

Just to arouse your appetite, the 2018 Audi R8 V10 RWS is offered with a starting tag of $138,700. When you add to the equation $1,250 for the destination as well as $1,300 that is the gas guzzler tax, then you have a car that is handsomely priced for the boys with the cash.

The 2018 version has a number of upgrades that are envious just to think about. First, the exterior is spruced up by the matte black grille, and deep gloss black wheels. The cabin is gifted with the exceptional Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster developed by Audi. This one offers embedded navigation capabilities, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The center console prides of the only climate control knobs.

The Audi RWS is powered by a 5.2-liter engine that generates 532 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. Being able to sprint at 3.7 seconds to 60mph, this is quite a fast car for this edition.
It becomes a difficult task to lay aside a car from its predecessors especially when the update is done so soon. The Audi RWS, however, makes this shift by trying to be a different car altogether in several ways.
