Audi R8 Named World Performance Car…Again

The Audi R8 Coupe has become the most recognized vehicle in the history of the World Car Awards by earning its fourth accolade from the jurors for 2016 World Performance Car. The R8’s predecessors have twice won the title, and another for the category of World Car Design of the Year—this years’ win brings the total to four. At Audi of Bridgewater, we love to see Audi models getting the recognition they deserve, so don’t mind us if we brag just a little.



The R8 Coupe is a powerful machine, you can sense its racing lineage both inside and out. In fact, the R8 Coupe is Audi’s most powerful production model on offer. When outfitted with its best, the R8 coupe gets 610 horsepower and can sprint from 0 to 62.1 mph in just 3.2 seconds at a top speed of 205.1 mph. Combine this power with the R8’s low-weight design philosophy and dynamic suspension and the R8 Coupe delivers a truly exceptional experience.

“With its distinctive design, its driving dynamics and its closeness to racing, the R8 is one of the strongest calling cards for the four rings and is the flagship car from Audi Sport. The first generation of the R8 paved our way toward becoming a premium brand and raised the aura of Audi to a new level. The new R8 will continue this success story and further accelerate the growth strategy of Audi Sport,” –Dietmar Voggenreiter, Board Member for Sales and Marketing at AUDI AG.
