Ten cylinders, four wheels, two seats and a million moments of pure joy! Who says money can't buy happiness?
It's 4:30am, there’s still a few hours before the sun comes out, but I am wide awake already, and that even after barely being able to sleep the previous night. Not being a morning person, it was out of sheer excitement that I managed to pull this stunt, and the credit for it goes to the tangerine bombshell you see in these pictures here.
The original R8 was the car that proved to the world that Audi can make supercars, and make them well too. In fact, not many cars could match the all-round performance of an R8. Yes, it wasn't as aspirational as a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, but it sure as hell was a lot easier to live with. This second generation model is now here to further its predecessor’s legacy. Be warned, it has some pretty big shoes to fill.
Before you crank that engine and feel the supercar rush, it's the R8’s design that really sweeps you off your feet. Some might say that it looks almost identical to its predecessor, but I personally love the way the design has evolved to make the R8 feel new-age. Wherever we went the car managed to gather quite an audience wanting to take a selfie with the car.

Audi R8 Highlights
Priced at a hefty tag of Rs 2.63 crores (ex-showroom, all India), the Audi R8 epitomizes racing spirit in every detail it carries. The exteriors are radically designed with large alloy wheels, dropping roofline, and hooded front and rear coming together to make an unforgettable impression. The racing spirit of the car is carried inside the cabin as well. Audi virtual cockpit theme and infotainment system keep you enchanted all the time although lack of space may dissuade many potential buyers from taking a plunge. Under the Hood, Audi R8 is powered by 5.2-liter V10 churning two different power outputs - 540 BHP and 610 BHP. This V10 engine makes use of the 7-speed automatic transmission to send power to all the four wheels via Audi's famous Quattro system. In India, Audi R8 is rivalling the likes of BMW i8, Nissan GT-R, Lamborghini Huracan, and Mercedes Benz AMG GT among others.
