Audi R8 V10 – Specifications & Top Speed

From one of my favorite websites, Left Lane News an informative article on the Audi V10 R8. I like Left Lane News because they state the facts, with little to no sugar coating, they let us come to our own conclusions. Soon to come from I Am Audi a first hand review of the Audi R8 V10 at the Audi Sportscar Experience in Sonoma California.

“The V10 is the same 5.2L FSI powerplant found in the new Lamorghini LP560-4, albeit detuned to 525 horsepower and 390 pound-feet or torque to keep the R8 out of the Gallardo’s territory. But despite being down a bit on grunt, the R8 V10 can still rocket from zero to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 196 mph.”
