New Audi R8 Launched at INR 2.47 Crores
Audi has had a great last year in India and the car enthusiasts are expecting the same excitement in 2016. For that, the German automaker continues to enthrall the audience with the launch of the new Audi R8. We first came across the vehicle at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, where we noticed plenty of changes compared to its predecessors.
Some of the new elements that the new Audi R8 encompasses include a digital 12.3 inch Audi Virtual cockpit system which replaces the previous vanilla looking multimedia interface system. The new interface enables the drivers to customise the options on the screen, based on their individual preference. There is not much change as far as overall designing of the car is concerned and the dimensions remain same as well.
Competing with the likes of Mercedes-AMG GT, McLaren 570S and Porsche 911, Audi R8 looks quite strong and it shares almost fifty percent of its parts with R8 LMS. The vehicle packs a serious fire power using the 5.2 litre V10 motor with two output specifications. The more powerful of the two is the 610bhp model, while the other one is capable of generating 540hp. Audi R8 has a top speed of 330kmph, where it can go from a standstill to 100kmph in just 3.2 seconds, and that is simply marvelous. Using a 7-speed S-Tronic gearbox, the engine sends power to all the four wheels via Quattro AWD system.
