The super car is priced at a hefty 2.05 crore rupees, ex-showroom Delhi. Despite displacing 5.2 liters in a V10 layout, a light weight of 258 kilograms is the hallmark of this engine. The low weight has been achieved by means of aluminium-silicon alloy construction of the crankcase of the car. The engine is also mounted low in the chassis for better weight distribution. To this end, technology straight from the race track, in this case dry sump lubrication, has been used. Plenty of carbon fiber has been used across the Audi R8 V10 to keep weight low. A major change in the Plus edition is the usage of carbon ceramic brakes, another aspect of the car that reduces weight while also improving braking performance.

Audi’s been bandying practicality and every day utility as stand out features of the R8 supercar. So, you get spacious interiors that aren’t as claustrophobic as say a fighter jet’s interiors what with a 2.65 meter wheelbase allowing for plenty of space for both driver and co-passenger. The two seat-mid engine supercar also comes with 100 liters of luggage space behind the seats to accommodate a day bag or two. Fully adjustable powered seats with the heating function, high quality leather upholstery for the seats and air conditioning are the few creature comforts offered on the R8 V10 Plus. The Audi R8 V10 Plus coupe joins the V8 and V10 engines variants as the third supercar in Audi India’s line up.
