Audi reveals R8 V10 before presenting it at Detroit Auto Show

When Audi first presented R8, it was obvious the supercar had a big deal of Lamborghini DNA, a company that Audi controls. It only did not have a Lamborghini engine, or else, no V10 and no V12, engines that have only beem under the hood of concept versions of R8. It will remain like this until January 2009, when the German automaker intends to officially present the new R8 V10, powered by a 5.2-litre engine able to generate 525 bhp and 530 Nm

With such an engine, similar to the one used by Lamborghini Gallardo, R8 is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km in 3.9 s and to reach a top speed of 316 km/h. The German supercar uses 19-inch alloy wheels, with 235/35 tyres in front and 295/30 tyres in the back. Ceramic brakes of 380 mm in front and 356 mm in the rear can be purchased as options, as well as buckett seat and Audi Parking System, which uses a rear camera.

With no options, or else, totally stock, R8 V10 will cost 142,400 euros in Germany, by the middle of 2009.
