Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI with 525HP

Audi Press and News

Audi R8What a frickin’ brute.

Pictured here is Audi’s top of the line R8 with the new, and long awaited V10 engine. Said mill cranks out a very respectable 525 horses and over 390 foot pounds of torque, all of which is sent to the ground via Audi’s Quatro all wheel drive system. It has enough computer controls, and-slip, anti-skid, ant-moron, boxes in situ that all you have to do is point it, and mash the loud pedal, and you’re gone (without being, er, gone … y’know, like gone daddy, gone).

And here’s the best part: The Audi R8 V10 5.2 costs $183,700

That’s less then Ferrari’s least expensive entry model; about a tenth of what a Bugatti goes for; yes, more than a 911, but quicker.

For the money, this is a hell of a car.

You get lots of goodies that can sling R8 down the road at astonishing velocities. The R8 5.2 FSI quattro goes from zero to 62 MPH in 3.9 seconds and can push on to 124 MPH in another 8.1 seconds. The R8 tops out at 196 MPH. Oh, and it can get 17.17 US mpg (which ain’t bad).

The R8 also comes with Audi’s magnetic ride system which adapts the characteristics of the suspension in milliseconds to the nature of the road surface, as well as brakes that feature eight pistons at the front and four at the rear grasp the brake disks, which are ventilated and perforated. There’s also a ceramic brake system available

It goes. It stops. And it’s (relatively) cheap.

What’s not to like?
