2018 Audi R8 V10 Interior and technology

A super car should not only look the part but also feel the part. In the Audi R8 V10, the bolstered support of the sport seats help hold you in place, and the competition-inspired steering wheel is your direct line of control through the corners. Your view forward is much like that of an LMS R8 racer, wide and unobstructed, making it easy to spot the next apex.

Three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel with two satellite buttons

Carefully shaped to give your hands a comfortable grasp, the three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel features two satellite buttons. To find your preferred Audi drive select setting, press the button to the lower left. And on the right is the Start/Stop button. Access to several infotainment features is ergonomically placed on the horizontal spokes. Within short reach of your fingertips are shift paddles for manual control of gear changes.

Heated 18-way power sport seats with Fine Nappa leather

The soft, natural feel of Fine Nappa leather helps provide the comfort, and 18 ways of power adjustment makes it easy to find a comfortable seating position. And the heating feature helps take the chill off cold days and nights.

Monoposto cockpit and wing-design dashboard

The arc starts from either side of the driver’s seat, enveloping the Audi virtual cockpit display and steering wheel. Similar to the view of a single-seat formula car, the Monoposto cockpit was designed to help keep your focus directly in front of you.

Anthracite inlays

Surrounding many of the controls of the ergonomically designed interior are inlays finished in Anthracite. The neutral, metallic tone of Anthracite interplays seamlessly with the silver-colored finish of the controls and buttons.

Automatic climate control

Right-sized so they occupy just enough dashboard space, the three automatic climate control knobs display mode, temperature and fan speed. Simply twist the silver outer ring to find your setting.

Alcantara® headliner

The unique texture of Alcantara® covers the headliner of the Audi R8 V10 Coupe, and the available Diamond stitching adds both luxury and sporting touches to the interior.
Diamond stitch full leather package
In addition to leather seats and the leather-wrapped steering wheel, the available Diamond stitch full- leather package adds Fine Nappa leather surfaces to the airbag cap, dashboard, instrument panel top, door panels, rear firewall partition and sides. The center sections of the seats are also finished in a bold diamond stitch pattern.
