As you probably already know by now, the new Audi R8 generation is making use of an updated 5.2 liter V10 engine under its hood, the same one used on the Lamborghini Huracan too. This is offered in two outputs, with 540 HP (397 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, in the standard model, and with 610 HP (449 kW) and 650 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque, in the range-topping Audi R8 V10 Plus. Besides the impressive output, the sports car is also getting an evolutionary design, with a prominent shoulder line, a CFRP fixed rear wing, curved lines, large diffuser, LED headlights, LED taillights and a trapezoidal exhaust. The cabin is bringing the Bang & Olufsen audio system, Alcantara / pearl Nappa leather, 12.3-inch display and more.
