Powered by the same 5.2 liter V10 engine seen on R8 Spyder and R8 V10 Coupe, the Plus variant is capable of 550 PS power as against an earlier 525 PS while torque has also been augmented to 540 Nm as compared to 530 Nm seen on other models.
This engine is mated to a 7 speed S tronic gearbox and power is directed to all four wheels due to the presence of Quattro technology. Audi’s upcoming R8 V10 Plus will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 317 kmph making it the quickest production car in the company’s line up as on date.
You can easily differentiate the R8 V10 Plus from its less powerful siblings as it features carbon fiber package for mirror housings, front splitter, air vents and wider side blades. Apart from this, the new Audi R8 V10 Plus also features 19″ alloys, twin exhaust pipes finished in black, and larger rear diffuser. Price of the R8 V10 Plus in Europe is at €173,200.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4zOKMDsxOI[/youtube]
