R8 limited slip differential (LSD) setup


Registered User
Hi guys,

I'm looking to buy a 2010 Gen 1 V10 manual in the upcoming months, but before I do I just want to know what the LSD set up is on these cars?

Is it a mechanical rear LSD only?
Or is it a mechanical front and rear LSD?
Or mechanical centre LSD?
Or is it 'fake' electronic LSD effect on each driven wheel that activates the brakes via the traction control?

Many thanks for the information if you have it.

The R8 Gen 1 V10 is a well driven and well owned car over the past decade, but finding accurate information on its power delivery and limited slip diff configuration is proving strangely difficult.
