Few weeks back we had the privilege to drive the one & only 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus with Castrol EDGE. The naturally aspirated V10 isn’t long for the world. That’s upsetting, but thankfully the R8 V10 Plus is fantastic.
From the first look at the new R8 with its edgier style, LED headlights, trapezoidal front grill, and dived door blade. One would simply think that the V10 plus was just a face lifted version of its former self. However sitting inside the cockpit and pressing the start button and hearing its 610hp V-10 roar to life, you rapidly discover this R8 isn’t all about looks.
With the advancement of racing and computer technology designers are able to take the new R8 places once only previously thought about in their dreams. To select drivers modes, the driver simply selects his mode from the steering wheel. This brings up a massive selection of sub options including the sound of the exhaust. Audi sticking with its normally aspirated Huracán V10 engine, has produced a Supercar that loves to rev, although it’s no dog when it comes to acceleration. With its electronically modified 7 speed dual clutch transmission and upgraded electronically controlled clutch to divert torque to the front axle, the V10 plus produces grip that is right at home on our track.
