The Audi R8 4.2 FSI quattro is the entry-level model in the Audi R8 model range. It is powered by a 4.2L V8 engine which is shared with the Audi RS4. It entered production in 2006 and underwent a facelift in 2012.

Need for Speed: ProStreetEdit

The Audi R8 appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a Tier 3 car.

It is available in the PC release of the game once the player has applied patch v1.1 or purchased the Booster Pack downloadable content. It is also available as part of the Extender Pack Premium Car Bundle #2 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 releases.

The Audi R8 is capable of reaching a high top speed and is therefore a suitable car for Speed Challenges. The heavy weight of the all-wheel drive system makes the Audi R8 enter and exit corners slower than similar Tier 3 cars.

Need for Speed: UndercoverEdit

The Audi R8 appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a Tier 1 car with a price tag of $220,000. It is unlocked upon reaching Wheelman Level 13.5.

The R8 is depicted in the game to be one of the fastest Tier 1 cars due to quick acceleration. It is capable of reaching a top speed of 236 mph (380 km/h) without upgrades, which can be increased up to 250 mph (403 km/h).

Shift SeriesEdit

The Audi R8 appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a Tier 3 car with a price tag of $135,000. It is unlocked upon collecting 80 stars and has a car rating of 8.60. It is incapable of a Works conversion and is ineligible for Drift events.

The Audi R8 appears in Shift 2: Unleashed with a 920 performance rating and 4.27 handling rating. It is purchaseable for $125,000. A Works upgrade for the car is available.

Despite being AWD, the Audi R8 is prone to powersliding in corners. The acceleration and top speed of the R8 might be lacking compared to other Tier 3 cars, although it is competitive in Shift 2: Unleashed, due to being one of the fastest Modern C cars.

Because of its low price tag for a Tier 3 car, players can use the Audi R8 for their initial Tier 3 race events. As the car appears to lack speed and power, it should be later swapped with a Tier 3 car that is capable of a Works Conversion and featured with a higher standard car rating.

Need for Speed: NitroEdit

The Audi R8 appears in Need for Speed: Nitro as a Class A car and costs $120,000.

Need for Speed: WorldEdit

The Audi R8 debuted as a Tier 3 vehicle in Need for Speed: World on June 28th, 2010 during the seventh closed beta stage. Since August 22nd, 2012, it has been featured as a 'B' Class vehicle.

The R8 has a mediocre nitrous boost but has a decent acceleration as well as a high top speed of 187 mph (302 km/h). Its heavy kerb weight benefits its pursuit durability but also makes the car useless in curvy race tracks due to heavy steering.
