Pushing the envelope for performance motoring fans, Audi India has introduced the new R8 V10 in here. Winner of the ‘World Performance Car’ 2010, the new Audi R8 V10 will be priced at Rs 1.33 crore (ex-showroom, Mumbai).

The R8 V10 features the more powerful 5.2-litre, ten-cylinder FSI engine that produces in excess of 510 bhp and is said to be capable of a top speed of over 315 kmph. The super sports car is capable of accelerating past the 100 kmph mark from standstill in just 3.9 seconds.

The Audi R8 5.2 FSI will be available with a manual six-speed transmission or R-tronic which enables the driver to change gears in an instant via rocker switches on the steering wheel. The quattro permanent all wheel drive technology used along with the ‘Launch Control’ function, which is integrated with both types of transmission, is said to help maintain absolute stability and driving comfort while catapulting the car forward from a standing start to give the driver a premium performance car experience.

Built out of aluminium in the Audi Space Frame design, the high performance sports car chassis weighs a mere 210 kgs without compromising on handling, drive quality and safety standards according to Audi engineers. The exterior of the R8 5.2 FSI is refreshed with newly designed sideblades to increase air intake and maximise performance. A very distinctive design highlight of the R8 V10 is the all-LED headlights which are part of standard equipment.

Completely hand-built with an extensive list of standard equipment, the Audi R8 5.2 FSI is customisable right down to fine details. Precisely stitched interior for leather packages add to the luxuriousness of this new super-sports benchmark.
