Spy Shots: Audi R10 makes round at Nurburgring

When the Audi R8 made its debut with a 4.2 FSI V8 engine everyone expected a V10 variant to follow. Since the R8 shares most of its components with the Volkswagen owned Lamborghini Gallardo, it was only a matter of time before that became a reality. Well rest assured, the Audi R10 is under development and spies have recently caught the R10 make rounds around the Nurburgring track in Germany for some high-speed testing.

The Audi R10 is expected to have a FSI V10 engine that will produce at least an extra 80 horsepower over the V8 model hitting the 500 horsepower mark. CAR Magazine says that the car pictured above differs from the R8 since the side sills are more heavily sculpted and also because the side scoops are reprofiled, giving the car more room to breathe with its powerful engine.

It is expected to make its debut within the next 18 months.
