Audi R8 V10 Nearly New Review
The R8 is the sporty spearhead of the Audi model lineup. This high-performance sports car is more dynamic than ever, with the S tronic transmission and new features on the exterior, in the cabin and for the brakes. All models now come standard with all-LED headlights.
The rear lights mark the premiere of another dynamic innovation: dynamic turn signals. Owning a high end supercar like this does not come easy on the pocket at its brand new asking price of over a million ringgit. Well, now you can take ownership quite easily with a low mileage hardly used unit that comes from a reputable used car importer. Imported into malaysia from 1st owners in Europe who hardly use their supercars, this R8 V10 could be your for a very reasonable price.
The powerful new R8 V10 plus with 550 hp sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds. Thanks to Audi ultra lightweight construction, the top-of-the-line model with a manual transmission has a curb weight of just 1,570 kilograms. The reshuffled R8 lineup comprises two body styles Coupé and Spyder and three engines.
The standard sprint times for both models equipped with the new seven-speed S tronic have improved by 0.3 seconds while fuel consumption has been reduced by as much as 0.9 liters per 100 km (22 grams CO2 per km [35.41 g/mile]).
The fast-shifting dual-clutch transmission features a launch control function that provides optimal traction when starting. Power is delivered to the road via the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system with a rear-axle bias.
All versions of the R8 feature an axle load distribution of roughly 43:57 – ideal for a mid-engine sports car. Dry sump lubrication enables the engines to be mounted low, giving the vehicle a very low center of gravity. All of the wheels are mounted on aluminum double wishbones. The setup is tuned for high dynamics, yet delivers good comfort. The adaptive damping system Audi magnetic ride (standard in the R8 V10) adapts the response of the shock absorbers to the requirements of the driver and the road. The chassis of the Audi R8 V10 is decidedly tuned for dynamics. A special configuration including modified spring/damper tuning with a corresponding adjustment of the camber values at the front axle provides for even more dynamic handling.
The alloy wheels, which measure 18 or 19-inches in diameter depending on the engine, come in a variety of new designs. The brakes are incredibly powerful. All four discs are internally vented and perforated, and their wave design reduces the weight. Audi also offers optional carbon fiber-ceramic discs that are even lighter, yet extremely durable and long-lasting. These are standard with the R8 V10 plus.
