January 2013 has already witnessed the launch of the new Audi Q5 in India. Hot on the tread marks of the SUV release is Audi’s R8, a luxurious drive in the sports car segment.
The drive is available in the V8 Coupé, V10 Coupé and V10 Spyder variants.
The car comes packed with power - a 4.2-litre engine supports the V8 engine, while the V10 boasts of a 5.2 litre.
Audi claims that replacing the R tronic with the seven speed S tronic has upped the car’s performance, enabling faster gearshifts and improving acceleration by 0.3 percent.

You can glam the interiors with the optional honeycomb-quilted Fine Nappa leather, and take your pick from new rim designs for your 18/19 inch wheels.
