A couple of hours ride in the driver’s seat might give the same feel as of any Audi, but the all new Audi R8 V10 plus is definitely not what one has ever seen in the industry. With 610 horsepower of force within, it is by far the fastest of all cars that Audi in Greensboro NC has ever produced to ride on the road. As a matter of fact, the car has got more power than the customized race car manufactured in the factory. In spite of sharing around fifty percent of parts, the race cars couldn’t match up with the power and speed that the Audi R8 V10 has ever produced.
As far as the design formula of the new model in concerned, the Audi has kept it intact with the original version. The two areas that have received minute refinishing are the front and rear which has grown to be a bit sharper and much more aggressive. Not just the R8 V10 plus, even the new Audi TT and A4 follows exactly the same formula. The fenders have been slightly widened, and instead of two piece side blade, the company has redesigned it and made it into one. While the standard V10 has got a flush, the V10 Plus receives a carbon fiber spoiler and a body color piece that deploys at speed.
Power is all that defines Audi recently- and Power indeed is fed to all the four wheels through the seven-speed S-Tronic dual clutch transmission. However, it is yet to be decided whether the sweet, gated manual transmission of the last generation will be added or not. The wheels are all that is ought to catch quite a few pair of eyes, since experts in the field of Audi repair have accepted how the brand has got full manettino with their new R8 V10 plus wheels, having all the relevant functions just within the reach of the finger tips. While the big red start button lies to the right, the Drive Select, Navigation and performance buttons are all on their left. The virtual cockpit in the form of 12.3-inch configurable screen shows all the essential requirements to drive safe on the road, which includes the speed, revs, maps, radio and all other information. Audi has even leveraged on Google Earth for the navigation system which infers that not only the address of the destination will be shown, but also the color of the building will be indicated.
The naturally aspirated 5.2 liter V10 in the Plus raises the speed 60 horsepower over the last model and 15 lb-ft of torque taking the final figure to 413 lb-ft. The R8 can sprint to 62 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds and reach 124 miles per hour in 9.9 seconds. The market of the R8 V10 Plus is varied and it might take some time to match the expected sales figure, but the brand will always keep their hopes high regarding this particular vehicle.
