Audi of America recently announced it will offer a limited edition R8 V10 to commemorate a decade of success for the automaker’s celebrated V10 engine. In a farewell bid to the R8 V10 quattro, the limited edition will consist of just 30 units and include technologies and features previously only found on the performance model.
Featuring the same naturally aspirated V10 engine as the R8 LMS racecar, the R8 V10 quattro puts out 562 horsepower and 406 lb-ft. of torque. It hits 60 in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 200 mph. The engine is attached to a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission.
The limited-edition R8 V10 quattro will come standard with a carbon fiber sway bar, variable exhaust system, and magnetic dampers. Featured for the first time on an R8 in the U.S., the 20-inch wheels are finished in silver with red-painted brake calipers.
