Joy of joys! The US purpose not be excluded from partaking in Audi’s first rear-wheel-drive wonderful car, the R8 RWS (Rear Wheel Series).

Confirmation comes today from Audi spokesperson Fingerprint Dahncke, who added that the RWS would be coming in 2018.

Audi Sport unveiled the two swing drive R8 earlier this week at the Frankfurt motor show. Stephan Winkelmann, Audi Make a fool of CEO, called it a rawer car for “purists.” With two fewer driven wheels, smaller fa wheels, and a number of other weight savings, the RWS will be a lighter, meaner R8.

Stilly propelled by Audi’s excellent naturally aspirated, 5.2 liter V10, the RWS inclination get the same 540 hp as the standard R8 (though not the 610 hp of the V10 Plus). Thanks to the lack of face wheel drive, and all the associated equipment, the RWS will weigh 110 lbs less than the beau id R8.

The result is still a net loss in acceleration speed (albeit only by 0.2 seconds), but a freer bum end and less weight dragging you off the apex.

Production will be limited to just 999 examples in both Coupe and Spyder configuration and we wish know it by the optional red stripe that starts on the left in the front crosses over and beyond to the right side by the time it reaches the rear (among other, subtler differences).

“The R8 V10 RWS is made for purists,” said Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Audi Distraction GmbH, at the launch. “A limited-edition special model for customers with an thankfulness for essential driving enjoyment, the R8 V10 RWS is an absolutely exclusive offer. With its mid-mounted V10 motor and rear-wheel drive, it successfully brings the driving concept of our R8 LMS racing car to the streets.”
