The R8 had one of the most memorable introductions ever, roaring away from the severed grille of “old luxury” in a Superbowl ad parodying a famous scene from The Godfather. While the commercial won awards and acclaim, the R8 really didn’t need any help drawing attention to itself. Fusing Lamborghini DNA with Audi aluminum, bestowed with LED-ringed headlights brooding over deep, dark air intakes, emboldened with contrasting “sideblades,” the R8 can’t help but be the center of attention. That’s what happens when a stunning concept car is translated into a production roadcar with almost no changes whatsoever. All four wheels are motivated by a highly refined 4.2-liter V8, resting under a glass cover for all to see. Despite the power and the Gallardo bits lurking under the gorgeous body, the R8 is tame and luxurious around town, like a superhero in disguise as a dapper but harmless civilian. Speaking of superheroes, the R8 4.2 was Tony Stark’s ride of choice in the hit film Iron Man.
— Official description [1]

The 2008 Audi R8, also known as Audi R8 4.2 FSI quattro, is a V8-engined supercar by Audi featured in all Xbox 360 Motorsport titles.

It is included in Forza Motorsport 2 as part of the December Car Pack.

Synopsis

The 2008 Audi R8 is equipped with a 4.2 litre V8 engine, specifically, it is an all-aluminium alloy 32-valve petrol engine. It develops a motive power output of 420 metric horsepower and generates 430 newton metres of torque. It is basically the same engine used in the Audi B7 RS4, but is modified to use a dry sump lubrication system.

It uses two chain-driven double overhead camshafts (DOHC) per cylinder bank, and utilises variable valve timing for both inlet and exhaust camshafts. The 4 wheel drive system is biased towards the rear; it sends 30% of its power to the front wheels and 70% to the rear.
