Audi R8 V10
The R8 was launched to rave reviews when Audi finally came to the supercar party and improving on a winning formula was always going to be difficult, however, the R8 V10 is not revolution, but evolution. The same V10 power unit that provides the grunt in the Lamborghini Huracan combines with an updated Quattro all wheel drive system to give this exquisite piece of German engineering a poise and prowess on the track that is hard to comprehend.
So down to the facts and figures. The 40 valve 5.2 litre V10 produces a thumping 533 bhp that is transferred through to the tarmac by a seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch gearbox and an updated quattro four-wheel drive system. From a standing start, sixty two miles per hour is a meagre 3.5 seconds away and if you put your foot flat to the floor and go through all seven gears the new R8 will pass the two hundred miles per hour mark.
It’s not all about straight lines for the R8 V10 though, with it’s updated quattro four-wheel drive system it is planted on the track and makes mincemeat of both sweeping bends and hairpins alike, giving fantastic feedback, leaving you confident and allowing you to make the most of this awesome supercar.
