After years of speculation, Audi has now confirmed the Audi R8 is at its end. The exotic sports car is going away after the 2023 model-year. Audi confirmed its decision to Car and Driver magazine during a test drive of the model’s new GT version. That GT will mark the last year on the market for a car that caused quite a sensation when it launched in 2007.
For its final run, the R8 will be offered in a 562-hp rear-wheel drive configuration, a 602-hp quattro version, and a GT configuration that is essentially a 602-hp rear-wheel drive variant.
At first, the R8 was offered with two engines, a 4.2L V8 and a 5.2L V10. For the past few years, only the latter has been available.
