And here it is. This is the new Audi R8 V10 and while the last one was stylistic masterpiece, the newest one takes everything one step further. Do we love it? You bet we do! The one presented in the video is the most powerful, the most better looking and the best equipped Audi R8 V10 Plus on the road right now. New car brings a lot of novelties. Space Frame chassis is upgraded and carbon fiber elements are entwined with aluminum frame thus lowering the weight of the car considerably. Moreover, the exterior is made of aluminum and carbon fiber. The result is a much lower overall weight, lower center of gravity and much more streamlined body.
Apart from using carbon fiber elements, the Audi R8 V10 Plus received reengineered engine in comparison with the version before. Majority of the parts are redesigned, the engine has a bit less weight than before, but it develops much more HPs. While the R8 V10 engine develops 540 HP, the R8 V10 Plus 5.2 liter engine develops insane 610 HP. That is the same amount of power as you’d get from a base Lamborghini Huracan. Actually, the engine is the same as in Lamborghini Huracan.
With so much power, better four wheel drive with rear locking differential and new S tronic transmission, R8 V10 Plus is able to reach 62 mph in 3.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 205 mph.
This red monster shown here is ready for the track and it represents the best Audi has to offer at this moment. Interestingly, we can expect the new R8 version in a year or so, but that one will be powered by a turbocharged V6.
