Audi, the German luxury car manufacturer, today set the pulses racing in New Delhi as it launched the most powerful and fastest production Audi ever built – the next generation Audi R8 V10 Plus in the state of New Delhi. Naturally-aspirated 5.2 FSI quattro® V10 mid-engine with up to 610 hp (449 kW) of power responds instantly to throttle and propels the car from 0 to 100 in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 330 km/h. Much lighter than its predecessor, the next generation Audi R8 V10 Plus is priced at INR 2.55 crores ex-showroom New Delhi.
“The previous model was already the sporty vanguard of the brand – and this applies to the second generation Audi R8 even more. The newly conceptualized high-performance sports car has been made even tauter and stronger, both on and off the race track. Embodied in its DNA is the know-how acquired in the numerous car racing successes that Audi has achieved over the years. In fact, 50 percent of the components of the new Audi R8 are from the Audi R8 LMS. With this next generation Audi R8 V10 Plus coming in, we are now unleashing the perfect poster boy for contemporary panache, outstanding performance and daily usability. We are sure that our enthusiasts in the state will love the car,” said Mr. Joe King, Head, Audi India
