Audi launches 2016 R8 V10 at Rs 2.47 crore at Auto Expo

Snapshot: Audi India launched new Audi R8 V10 Plus at Rs 2.47 crore (ex showroom Mumbai & New Delhi) at the Auto Expo 2016.

Audi India launched new Audi R8 V10 Plus at Rs 2.47 crore (ex showroom Mumbai & New Delhi) at the Auto Expo 2016. After Geneva Motor Show 2015, it is now here at the Auto Expo 2016 witnessing the unveiling of a refurbished premium sports car, Audi R8. The previous model had four trims – V8 Coupe, V10 Coupe, V10 Spyder and V10 Plus, whereas the new avatar has received refurbishments in V10 and V10 Plus models.


The design reflects the powerful character of the R8. Hence, be it the coupe or convertible, the exotic appearance of Audi R8 Facelift has become more pronounced with refined side air ducts, elegant side sills, LED headlamps and tail lamps, and bigger 19 inches alloy wheels. The coupe and convertible differ in the presence/absence of aluminium side blades and air ducts at the rear. The frame of the face-lifted car has been made out of aluminium to reinforce its core strength as well as to reduce its kerb weight.

The 5.2-litre FSI engine at the heart of the new R8 and churns out 610 PS of impressive power. The range-topping model accelerates in a mere 3.2 seconds from rest to 62 mph and keeps going to its maximum speed of 205 mph. The sound of the naturally aspirated V10 engine, whose maximum torque is available at 6,500 rpm, has become even fuller and sharper. A seven-speed S-tronic transmission and a newly developed quattro drive system that transmit the power to the road. The distribution of the drive torque is highly adaptable to prevailing driving conditions – in extreme cases, 100 percent of the torque can be transmitted to the front or rear axle.

The fancy car looks forward to take on the Porsche 911, Ferrari 458 Spider, Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT Roadster and Lamborghini Huracan with better exterior cosmetics and engine based drivetronics.
