Photos & Info: Audi R8 V10

Audi launched its R8 road car in 2007, named after the successful Audi R8 race car. Following the success of the V8 R8, there was something missing from the R8 which could further unleash the car’s full potential. Now, we have the Audi R8 V10, which has concluded the missing elements from the V8 R8 and displays true potential of an exotic.

The Audi R8 is powered by a 5.2 litre FSI V10 engine, based on the unit in the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, producing out 525 hp and generates 530 nm of torque. The R8 V10 can rocket from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 315 km/h.

But despite being down a bit on grunt, the R8 V10 can still rocket from zero to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 196 mph.

Even though the power and the engine specs differ from these breeds, the visual differences are not many. Nevertheless, some changes from the V8 R8 is, dual elliptical exhaust outlets, bigger side air intakes, a revised front and rear fascias and larger brakes. The V10 version also has unique LED headlights.

What makes the Audi R8 V10 the beast?
