With a top speed of 196mph and acceleration of 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds the Audi R8 V10 is a breathtaking supercar.
On sale now at £98,550 the Audi R8 V10 is cheaper than a Ferrari, Aston DB9 or a Lamborghini. Audi offers a choice of gearboxes, a six-speed manual or the R tronic twin clutch system with its steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The Audi R8 V10 has unique ten spoke alloy wheels, bigger side sills, wider side vents, oval tail pipes and a special rear diffuser. On the nose are the world’s first all-LED headlamps for low and high beam operations. Inside the Audi R8 V10 it is quite roomy with superb leather sports seats and has tasteful LED illumination, although some brushed aluminum wouldn’t have gone amiss. Standard kit on the Audi R8 V10 includes a DVD satellite navigation system, electric seating adjustment and an excellent Bang & Olufsen stereo packing 465 watts of music power. The Audi R8 V10 certainly isn’t cheap but in the context of the supercar elite which it can live with in terms of performance, it could be construed as a bit of a bargain.
