Audi UK will present nine brand new models to the public for the first time in the UK at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed June 23-26, including debuts for the new high-performance R8 V10 Spyder. Also making their UK public debuts will be the all-new, second-generation Audi S5 Coupé, packing a 3-litre V6 turbocharged petrol engine with 349bhp, and, joining the Audi Sport family, the all-new five-cylinder TT RS Coupé.
Paying homage to the R8 GT3 race car that took a total of 323 overall race wins, Audi will also present the brand new limited edition R8 V10 plus selection 24h. Only 24 of these 610PS monsters will be built, making Audi’s most powerful car also one of its most exclusive.
The Vorsprung durch Technik brand’s presence won’t only be felt in the exhibition area where the public can get up close to its newest models; it will also star on track, where a professional race driver will pilot the blistering Audi R8 V10 plus up the famous hill in the Michelin Supercar Run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
For fans of heritage race cars, the 1991 Audi V8 DTM will thunder up the hill with Frank Biela at the wheel to celebrate 25 years since his DTM victory. Another milestone will be remembered when an Auto Union Type C ‘Silver Arrow’, driven by Pink Floyd legend Nick Mason, will also rumble up the hallowed Goodwood tarmac to mark 80 years since Auto Union’s European Championship victory in 1936.
