Earlier this month a production ready Audi R8 V10 was spotted around the streets of Nurburgring. Now the V10 powered R8 is hitting up the Nurburgring for some high-speed testing alongside its less-powerful sibling the 420-hp R8.
Comparing the two you can notice the R8 V10 gets a new chrome grille, much like the ‘S’ models from Audi, and larger side vents.
So far we’ve heard that power will come from a 5.0L V10 TFSI engine found in the R6 Avant. However, the recent Audi product launch document that was leaked says that the R8 V10 will see a 5.2 liter unit producing 518-hp. Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.
