Much lighter than its predecessor, the next generation Audi R8 V10 Plus is priced at INR 2.47 crores ex-showroom Mumbai and New Delhi.

“The previous model was already the sporty vanguard of the brand – and this applies to the second generation Audi R8 even more. The newly conceptualized 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 percent 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,” said Mr. Joe King, Head, Audi India.
