The second and current generation Audi R8, known internally as Type 4S, was introduced in 2015 and received a substantial refresh in late 2018. Since then, little has changed for the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10-powered supercar. Like any vehicle with an internal combustion engine lacking any sort of electrical assist system, the R8’s days are numbered. Audi has not announced when production will end but one market has already given the coupe and spyder their respective death sentences.
Australia’s Car Sales reports the R8 has been discontinued in the country, just barely a year after the facelifted version debuted Down Under. The reason is due to a specific engine tune Australia requires to meet emissions requirements. Audi did the math and, due to already low sales because it’s a niche model, it made no financial sense to do that tune for a single country.
