    2018 R8 V10 Plus Sport

    I traded my 2017 R8 V10 Plus for a 2018 R8 V10 Plus because I wanted a newer model with almost zero miles (500). After checking out the car more closely I noticed the grill emblem says Audi Sport and I see on the window sticker that it also says "Audi Sport". I cannot determine what differences there are, if any, to the R8 V10 Plus (non-sport model)? I do know there was a Sport Edition model (with red instead of the carbon fiber pieces), but mine is the Sport model (no Edition). Is anyone familiar with the Sport Model and if so could you please let me know the differences? Thanks in advance.

    Company name change, not a specific model designation. quattro gmbh became Audi Sport gmbh and those badges changed from MY2017 to MY2018 with the new company name.

    Yes, and I contacted the dealer who looked into it for me. They said that in 2018 Audi wanted to emphasis more "sport", hence the added emblem on the grill and the light beam shining down at the ground from the outside rear view mirrors in 2017 had the four rings and in 2018 it says "Audi Sport". So no big deal either way. Thanks

    Referring to ‘quattro’ front badge change to ‘Audi Sport’ .

    Edit: It seems to depend upon the time of MY production. A 2017 sticker that does not say Audi Sport, https://bit.ly/2Tie7Cg ; ‘17 front badges were all apparently ‘quattro.’
