DESIGNED TO CONTROL YOUR EXCITEMENT.
2018 Audi R8 Interior and technology
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
2018 Audi R8 V10 plus Interior and technology
Three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel with perforated leather wrap and four satellite buttons
The Audi R8 V10 plus is equipped with a three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel wrapped in perforated leather. In addition to the Audi drive select and Start/Stop buttons, the steering wheel features two more buttons. The checkered flag symbol on top of the Performance button gives the driver one-touch access to the highest performance levels the R8 V10 plus offers. The Sports exhaust button under the Start/Stop button allows you to add a touch more aggression to the exhaust note.
Racing shell seats
The light Racing shell seats help the Audi R8 V10 plus shed precious pounds and improve performance. Covered in Fine Nappa leather, they feature powered height adjustment and pronounced side bolsters for more lateral support during spirited driving.
Illuminated high-gloss Carbon fiber
A reminder that entering and exiting the Audi R8 V10 plus is a special event, the Carbon fiber door sills are finished with a high-gloss sheen and illuminate when the doors are opened.
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.
Audi virtual cockpit
With Audi virtual cockpit, you can choose from three display settings on the 12.3-inch screen: from the Infotainment mode that displays a map of your driving route or infotainment menu, to Classic mode with its two circular dials and information displayed in between, to Sport mode, where the tachometer and speed readings take front and center.
Audi smartphone interface
By pairing your compatible smartphone to the MMI® infotainment system of the Audi R8, you can stream music from your compatible phone, make and receive phone calls, and access text messages and email.[2,3]
Part of the MMI® Navigation plus system, MMI® touch lets you scroll through infotainment menus by intuitive scroll, twist, tap and touch hand movements. Innovative handwriting recognition has the ability to read the letters you write on the touchpad.
