Audi R8 5.2 V10 FSI quattro isn’t confirmed for the stateside

Over the weekend we brought you a video of the 2010 Audi R8 5.2 V10 FSI quattro in action along with a bunch of new images. However, the press release had no mention of the car’s stateside availability. When asked by Inside Line when the much anticipated high-performance V10 R8 will come to the U.S., Audi said that it isn’t in the plan just yet.

“The 5.2 FSI isn’t yet fully confirmed for U.S.A.,” Audi of America spokesman Christian Bokich told Inside Line in an email. “Arrival wouldn’t be expected before the first half of 2010.”

The V10 R8 goes on sale in Germany in the second quarter of 2009.
