Audi USA has just officially unveiled their 2015 Audi R8 Competition, which is far and away the most powerful production model ever. Released ahead of its debut at next year's Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2015 generation will be powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 570 horses that powers it to 60mph in 3.2 seconds with the help of a seven-speed S Tronic transmission and all-wheel-drive system. In fitting with the claim to be the "fastest R8 ever offered," the 2015 model tops out at 199 mph. Matte carbon fiber seen on the spoiler, side skirts, mirror caps, and rear wing help the exterior styling while gloss black alloy wheels and a sports exhaust system with similar tailpipes finish the look. Inside, the sporty styling continues with matte carbon fiber trim lit up with "R8 Competition" door sills. Other interior details and colorways can be customized according to the owner's preferences. Production will be limited to 60 units and will be exclusively available in the United States with delivery beginning early next year.
