Taking the New 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus for a Drive
For our latest video, we take a closer look at the new revamped version of the Audi R8. Deemed the Audi R8 V10 Plus, this version sees an increase of 25 horsepower to its NA 5.2-liter V10 engine, which is matted to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission — putting it near the 550hp mark with 398 lb-ft of torque @ 6,500 RPM — and sheds roughly 130 lbs in weight with the help of carbon fiber/aluminum construction and a more conservative use of sound dampening insulation. The good people over at Audi were kind enough to drop off a loaner for us to use in our drive out to The Hamptons to chat with General Manager of Brand Communications, Andrew Lipman — gaining some further insights on the exotic coupe.
