2021 Audi R8 Panther Edition

Published By

Seldom seen in the wild, yet its existence unquestioned, the 2021 Audi R8 Panther Edition is here. Recently unveiled by Audi, the all-new RWD-only version of the R8 is a special edition. Limited to only 30 production models for 2021, the Panther Edition is already looking for its next prey. 

If you do catch a glimpse of a matte black R8 featuring red trim and 20-inch milled rims, approach with caution. If the paint has a special Panther Black crystal effect, your stomach is going to sink with fear. Good luck outrunning a Panther.

That is a 5.2L V10 engine producing 532 horsepower with 398 pound-feet or torque. Being capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds is only the tip of the iceberg. The Panther can reach a top speed of 201 mph. Don’t even try to catch it, you can’t.

Available at select Audi dealers beginning in December 2020, the all-new R8 Panther features plenty of special edition exclusives. The full-leather black interior features special Panther crimson red stitching. Even the racing shell seats feature a matching crimson red theme on the Nappa leather. 

True enthusiasts of this car always want to fire it up to hear the dynamic exhaust note of this powerful engine. Panther Editions feature a special sport exhaust system that amplifies the sound to the driver’s preference. A simple button on the steering wheel makes it easy to adjust the exhaust tone to your preference.

Offering a unique rear-engine, RWD layout, drivers have plenty of modern technology at their fingertips to assist with the R8 Panther experience. Conveniently located on the steering wheel Audi’s Drive Select and Performance Mode selectors ease you into the driver’s seat of such a powerful machine.

Audi did not just roll out a RWD version of the same old R8. They did not cut any corners. The chassis has been specifically tuned for rear-wheel drive applications. Expect typical precision handling with the drift ability of RWD dynamics.

The long awaited release of the rear-wheel drive R8 Panther is here. Don’t miss your chance to get behind the wheel of the 2021 Audi R8 Panther Edition. 30 of them will be roaming the wilderness, whether or not you choose to get behind the wheel of one.
