Innovative lightweight construction. Audi Space Frame (ASF).
Vehicle body rigidity made easy: for over two decades, the Audi Space Frame (ASF) body has been a convincing example of innovative lightweight technology. The high-strength aluminium-frame structure is characterised by a high level of rigidity while at the same time being lightweight. With the R8 V10 Coupé, Audi presents a new body concept and the next evolutionary step of the Audi Space Frame. The multi-material construction design takes centre stage. The body of the new Audi R8 V10 Coupé, for example, is made up of a variety of components: 50% extruded aluminium sections, 15% aluminium sheets and 21 % aluminium cast nodes. In addition to the well-known materials, new materials are being used in the Audi R8 V10 Coupé. for the first time – such as the carbon elements that make up the final 14 %. This, in combination, with the higher-strength aluminium alloys and the struts concept in the rear of the car, allowed for a further increase in body rigidity and reduction in weight – while improving the functional characteristics at the same time. In addition, the geometric lightweight construction improved power transmission. That is because the Audi Space Frame represents not only safety, but also increased performance and sporty handling.
