Audi R8 V10 – Carbon Fiber Mirrors & More…

Sep 2

After taking delivery of the new 2010 Audi R8 V10 the client was extremely excited and wanted to share his experience and initial driving impressions. From an appearance stand point the Audi R8 V10 has a larger rear lower defusser, larger sideblade for cooling, as well as full L.E.D (Light Emitting Diode) headlights. Now there are many other differences, those are just the most apparent (excluding the new R8 V10 style wheels & V10 engine.) We are lucky enough at Sunset Imports to build relationships with our clients that give them the opportunity to share their experiences and have them heard. No matter how you look at it, the Audi R8 V10 could not disappoint, even if you wanted it to. So enjoy these pictures and watch for this new Audi owners input in the future, as well, thank you so much for visiting and all your comments.

OK guys…having driven this car for a week, granted not too far….~100 miles….but I can say this car IS a WINNER! I have not found anything I don’t like or would change.

I can see differences between my M6…setup for me for the fastest shifting and the suspension and safety controls the way I like them, and the V10, but overall both are terrific cars. Since I’m still learning the R8….I can’t say how much more I’ll like it than the BMW, but the mid-engine, design, yada, yada, yada, will definitely give it the prize! I guess if the V10 was here in ’06, I wouldn’t have bought the M6. But now, having both, they both have great features and will serve me well for different things.

I love these cars. But you CANNOT go wrong with the R8!

Wow, I didn’t realize that the R8 V10 had so much carbon fiber, the carbon fiber side plane thing, carbon fiber mirrors etc.. .

That car is so sweet, never driven it, watched many review, like what Top Gear had to say about it. Is the whole body carbon fiber or just the exposed parts? Like does it have a carbon fiber hood and trunk but it’s just painted over?

Want to add to the conversation? Please do.



1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
