Back in 2018, Audi debuted a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) version of the R8 called the RWS. As good as it was, the R8 RWS was limited to only 320 units. For those mourning the return of an R8 RWD, we have good news. The Audi R8 RWD is making a comeback for the 2021 model year, and you can have it as a Coupe or Spyder.
It may sound like a cliché, but the new Audi R8 RWD is a more affordable way to experience Audi’s racing DNA. With no additional hardware turning the front wheels, it’s also lighter than its Quattro brethren, and the numbers don’t lie.
