New Delhi: Barely a few months after launching its 2013 R8 in the country, Audi has launched the high-performance V10 Plus variant at Rs 2.05 crore, ex- showroom India.
Boasting of a 558PS/540Nm 5.2-litre V10 FSI engine from Lamborghini, the Audi R8 V10 Plus goes from 0-100kmph in just 3.5 seconds. A 7-speed S tronic dual clutch gearbox handles the transmission duties. Audi claims that the V10 Plus can hit a top speed of 317kmph.
The suspension bits from the regular R8 have been tweaked to make the V10 Plus stiffer. The V10 Plus also loses 50kg over the regular V10 trim by extensive use of carbon fibre. Components like the front splitter, side blades, mirrors and rear diffuser are all made of CFRP.
Visually, the R8 V10 Plus looks the same like its lesser powered V10 sibling but has a different set of alloys and a matt finish to its grill.
