The German sports car manufacturer Audi has revealed a new special version called R8 Panther, and although it is exclusively offered in the American market only, our team at ArabGT will introduce you to the most important thing that distinguishes it.
Before talking about this special Panther car, we would like to remind you of the latest article we presented about Audi R8:
Pictures of the 2021 R8 Panther Edition:
Audi R8 Panther edition will come standard equipped with Audi exclusive Panther Black crystal effect paint with carbon exterior mirror housings, in addition to 20” 5-double-spoke-dynamic design wheels, milled cut, finished in matte black with red trim, with summer performance tires
The car also has LED headlights and LED taillights with dynamic turn signals, and Bang & Olufsen sound system featuring 13 speakers and 550 watts
Inside, the cockpit received Audi’s exclusive full leather black upholstery with Crimson red stitching, racing shell seats in Crimson red, fine Nappa leather with power height and manual fore/aft seat adjustment.
The R8 Panther edition features a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter FSI V10 engine that produces 532 horsepower and 540 Nm of torque, and sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds to achieve a top track speed of 201 mph.
The first available units in the R8 RWD model line, the chassis of the R8 Panther edition has been specifically adapted for rear-wheel drive, including using solid rear axles as opposed to hollow, a stiffer front anti-roll bar, and an increase in rear negative camber. The electromechanical power steering – free of torque steer – enables precise handling and driver feedback. For a heightened driving experience, the driver can choose the “dynamic” mode in the standard Audi drive select and set the Stabilization Control ESC to “sport.”
The 2021 R8 Panther edition will be available in select dealerships this month with an MSRP of $183,300, equivalent to 687,375 Saudi riyals. Price excludes $1,495 destination charge.
