Audi R8 V10 Plus gets top power and features
The top of the range Audi R8 V10 Plus will come with enough power to satisfy any super hero. The V10 powerplant will pump out 550 horsepower with 398 lb ft of torque. Equipped with the available S tronic, it sprints from 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 196 mph. Audi says the new R8 V10 Plus weighs approximately 130 lbs. less than the R8 V10 because of a few key performance features.
