Model Highlights

The 2010 Audi returns again as an affordable alternative to its supercar competition. The standard 420-hp, FSI direct-injected 4.2L V8 can be mated to either a 6-speed manual or the "R-tronic" 6-speed sequential manual gearbox. The 4-wheel independent suspension employs a magnetic ride adaptive damping system and Audi's legendary quattro all-wheel-drive system to maximize handling, and the R8's aluminum space frame keeps the chassis rigid and light. The end result is a car that excels when whipped through the corners.

A new V10 is optional for 2010, sourced from the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and retuned with direct injection and dry-sump oiling exclusively for use in the R8. It makes 525 hp at a screaming 8,700 rpm as compared to the V8's 420 hp, and it's only 68 pounds heavier. Audi claims the V10 can run to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.6 seconds, on its way to a 196 mph top speed.

Outside, the car has sleek and aggressive lines that pair nicely with the enormous front and side air intakes, as well as the handsome 19-inch alloy wheels. The R8's engine is on display through the rear glass (complemented by LED lighting). The end result is a look that is remarkably fresh and contemporary.

The interior is extremely well-equipped with all you would expect to find in a car with a sticker price sneaking into six figures. Features include heated leather-trimmed power seats, a driver information system, satellite radio, automatic climate control and an auto-dimming mirror. Bluetooth handsfree interface and Homelink universal garage door opener come standard as well. More than the equipment, however, is the design. Chrome trim tastefully adorns the cockpit, ergonomics are outstanding and the material quality is superb.

Standard safety equipment abounds, with newly designed all-LED headlights, anti-lock brakes, side impact air bags, knee air bags, stability control with anti-slip regulation, and a tire pressure monitor.

A terrific Bang & Olufsen audio system is optional and includes active noise cancellation. Carbon fiber interior inlays and Audi Navigation are optional as well, with the latter including a 6.25-inch LCD display and twin SD card slots for MP3 playback.

The optional Premium Package combines auto-dimming exterior mirrors, front and rear parking assist, and Hill-Hold Assist. Extra interior leather trim, an upgraded headliner, and various color treatments for the exterior side "blade" round out the options list.


Model News

Audi's R8 supercar returns for 2010 with few visual changes, including high-gloss black chin spoiler and air inlet paint, a new grille design, and new all-LED headlights. The most noteworthy change is the addition of an optional 525-horsepower 5.2L V10 sourced from the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. V10 models get unique 10-spoke 19-inch wheels, magnetic ride control, two large tailpipes instead of the V8's four, and larger brakes.


Value Writeup

Audi's 2010 R8 delivers a driving and ownership experience that only the most exclusive marques can beat, and it does so at a cost that is virtually half of most of its competitors. The striking styling, the mid-mounted engine and the thrilling exhaust note come together to create a dynamic driving machine that is nothing short of exquisite.

The V8-equipped R8 can sprint to 60 mph in just over four seconds and can ably run through whatever curves you might find. The R8 marries German engineering with Italian verve (the R8 shares its platform with the Lamborghini Gallardo) to great effect, and looks like nothing else on the road.
