The 2016 Audi R8 has been officially unveiled six months ago, during the Geneva Motor Show.

The cabin has been nicely equipped with bucket seats, Alcantara / pearl Nappa leather, Bang & Olufsen audio system, 12.3-inch display replacing most of the controls and more. The new performance model has a 40 percent increased torsional rigidity and it is bringing an updated 5.2 liter V10 naturally aspirated engine under its hood, available in two outputs, with 535 HP (397 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, in the regular R8, along with the 602 HP (449 kW) and 650 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque, available on the range-topping R8 V10 Plus.
