Today I attended the closed premiere of the second generation Audi R8 V10 plus, an event took place in the very heart of the capital - at the monument to Peter I. But before showing the photos, let me show you a short video with the novelty, which I made there :)
Good, isn't it?) Now let's take a closer look. The first generation of R8 was released back in 2006 and during all this time it has shown itself as a uniquely successful sports car - more than 27,000 of these lighters have already been sold in the world!) In Russia, for reference, there are 361 pieces :)
All there are three versions of the novelty - racing Audi R8 LMS (585 forces), Audi R8 V10 (540 forces) and Audi R8 V10 plus (610 forces). Only the most powerful, 610-strong version of the Audi R8 V10 plus will be delivered to our country …)
The atmospheric V10 with a volume of 5.2 in the plus version carries the "erka" to the first hundred in 3.2 seconds, and to the second in just 9.9 seconds!) The maximum speed is 330 km / h + there is a function of turning off the cylinders and the coasting mode, so if you go calmly, then you will also get a consumption in the combined cycle of 12.3 L / 100 KM, which is just a fairy tale for 610 forces :)
In the second generation the car has become even lighter: 79% of the frame consists of aluminum parts, 13% of carbon fiber elements - due to this, the dry weight is only 1,454 kg :)
Well, let's see how it is inside …)
The interior has become noticeably more space due to the new shape of the dashboard, which was so noticeably changed thanks to the integration of the functions of the central MMI monitor in the new Audi dashboard.
I wonder if other automakers will follow this move over time? They came up with it literally, however :)
Prices for the new R8 have not yet been announced, they will be a little later, and from the good news - such a lighter will soon be on the test, so let's study in detail what the latest technologies and developments from Audi are, because this car is primarily a demonstration of all the brand's capabilities today…)
By the way, it was very nice to find this beautiful ceramic mug from Audi Sport in a bag with a press kit, a trifle, but how nice!)
What are your opinions, friends? Do you like the new generation of the Audi R8 V10 in terms of exterior and interior? And who do you think is her competitor?
Best regards, Alan Enileev.
ps I will be glad to see you on my instagram and VKontakte, as well as on facebook and YouTube :)
UPGRADE: added a video with exhaust sound, bon appetit :)
