A little over two months after the launch of the 2013 Audi R8 in India, the German luxury car maker has introduced the R8 V10 plus in the country at Rs 2,05,95,000 (ex-showroom Maharashtra) making it Audi’s flagship performance car in India.

 

The Lamborghini derived naturally aspirated 5.2 litre FSI V10 engine in the Audi R8 plus belts out an additional 25PS of power pushing the total power output to 550PS while the torque figure has gone up over the standard R8 V10 by 10Nm to 540Nm @ 6,500 rpm. 

 

The engine is mated to the company’s latest fast shifting S tronic 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox featuring launch control for optimum traction during enthusiastic standing starts. Power is sent to the wheels via Audi’s legendary quattro all-wheel-drive system with a rear axle bias for some flamboyant rear wheel power biased action.

Audi has also increased the use of carbon fibre in the R8 V10 plus to lower its gross weight by 50kg over the standard R8 V10 to increase the plus’ power to weight ratio. 

 

The result is that this mid-engined supercar can go from 0-100km/h in a mere 3.5 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 317km/h. While this is only marginally faster than the standard R8 V10 S tronic, the R8 V10 plus’ suspension has been tuned to make it sharper around corners to make it faster overall.  

 

At Rs 2,05,95,000, the Audi R8 V10 plus is priced bang in the territory of the Lamborghini Gallardo and Porsche 911 Turbo.
