Audi Australia Pty Ltd — Audi R8 V10 Coupé Spyder Vehicles with DL800 Gearbox
What are the defects?
Audi R8 vehicles could have a possible oil leakage in the gearbox breather when the vehicle is being driven on a racetrack and extreme driving manoeuvres are being undertaken.
What are the hazards?
Oil vapour escaping from the gearbox breather can make contact with hot components in the engine compartment. As a result, smoke may be produced and the vehicle could catch fire.
What should consumers do?
Audi Australia Pty Ltd is contacting all known owners of affected vehicles. Consumers should contact their nearest Audi Dealer to arrange for inspection and repair.
For any queries or concerns, contact Audi Australia's 24-hour toll free number 1800 50 AUDI (2834).
