Audi has launched the R8 V10 in India. If you happen to have Rs 1.32 crore handy, you can now go into an Audi dealership and drive out in this beast of a machine.
The new R8 5.2 FSI is available with a manual six-speed transmission or the R tronic gearbox, which enables the driver to change gears very quickly. The changes are effected by pressing the rocker switches on the steering wheel.
What's so exclusive about this car is that every single Audi R8 5.2 FSI is hand-built. In terms of exterior changes - there is a mild refresher that includes newly designed sideblades to increase air and maximum performance. And the exclusive design element is the all-LED headlight which is standard.
The car also features the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive technology. Then, there's the Launch Control function, which is available with both types of transmission. This ensures the car is stable and there is driving comfort even when it hurtles forward from standstill. The car is built of aluminium and the spaceframe weighs just 210 kg, with no compromise on safety and performance though.No wonder then, that this car has won the 2010 World Performance Car Of The Year award.
Audi India is currently also focussing on forthcoming showroom openings in Delhi and Ludhiana. Last year, the company inaugurated showrooms in Mumbai, Kolkata, Jaipur and Bengaluru. So there's more cities in which to buy your R8.
