Audi, the German luxury car manufacturer, set the pulses racing in Hyderabad as it launched the most powerful and fastest production Audi ever built the next generation Audi R8 V10 Plus in Telangana.

Naturally-aspirated 5.2 FSI quattro V10 mid-engine with up to 610 hp (449 kW) of power responds instantly to throttle and propels the car from 0 to 100 in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 330 km/h. Much lighter than its predecessor, the next generation Audi R8 V10 Plus is priced at Rs 2.62 crore ex-showroom Hyderabad.

“The previous model was already the sporty vanguard of the brand and this applies to the second generation Audi R8 even more. The newly conceptualised high-performance sports car has been made even tauter and stronger, both on and off the race track. Embodied in its DNA is the know-how acquired in the numerous car racing successes that Audi has achieved over the years.

In fact, 50 per cent of the components of the new Audi R8 are from the Audi R8 LMS. With this next generation Audi R8 V10 Plus coming in, we are now unleashing the perfect poster boy for contemporary panache, outstanding performance and daily usability. We are sure that our enthusiasts in the state will love the car,” said Joe King, Head, Audi India after the launch.

The new lighter and even more powerful second generation Audi R8 shares around 50 per cent of its components with the R8 LMS, including technologies like the Audi Space Frame and V10 engine. Clearly, the Audi R8 is a car with motorsport in its genes.

Speaking on the occasion, Rajiv Sanghvi, Managing Director, Audi Hyderabad said, “The new Audi R8 brings concentrated motorsport competence from the racetrack to the road and is the fastest production Audi ever. Audi Hyderabad is the highest selling dealership for R8’s in India and we are excited to launch the new Audi R8 in Hyderabad.”
