The new Audi R8 v10 Plus is truly one of the best products that Audi has put on the market. Compared to the rest of the R8 lineup, the new Plus version is distinguished by carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) additions from just about every angle of the sports car, including the front splitter, lateral air inlets, the huge rear diffuser, the lining in the engine compartment. The intense use of carbon fibre has helped drop the car’s total weight to an impressive 3,461 pounds. The aerodynamic ad-ons also give it good downforce at high speeds. The R8 uses a same platform as the Lamborghini Gallardo. The engine produces 550 horsepower. That’s quite a bit. It uses an effective mid engine all wheel drive layout to balance weight. The car also has a improved 7 speed dual clutch transmission which was so much better and faster than old transmission. The car’s brakes are huge, the carbon ceramic brakes are very effective. The black foraged rims looks amazing. The car has good driving dynamics overal. The 0-100 km/h acceleration is reached in an mind bending 3.2 seconds. The car could use a stickier tire which will give it better traction and braking. Personally I think the car looks amazing.
