The Audi R8 is fast becoming an icon. With a sound from it’s glorious V8 that resembles an American muscle car, it’s fast, comfortable and since it shares the same chassis from the Lamborghini Gallardo – very surefooted. As it also sports permanent four wheel drive, it’s an exhilarating all weather Supercar.
Rarely seen on the UK’s roads, the Audi R8 V10 Plus is quite a step up from its predecessor, the 4.2 V8. With a power increase to 550bhp, to say it’s fast would be an understatement! Just like its smaller brother with the V8 engine the V10 R8 shares the same chassis from the Lamborghini Gallardo, making it extremely surefooted. Dial in a manic soundtrack and a gearchange that takes milliseconds, the Audi R8 V10 makes a stunning gift experience for one very lucky recipient!
Audi is a German automobile manufacturer that designs, markets, produces, distributes and engineers luxury cars. The company had a complex background. August Horch (the founder of Audi) started two smaller companies in the early 20th century, it them joined forces with two other manufacturers; this lead to the foundation of Auto Union in 1932. The modern era of Audi began in the 1960s after Auto Union was acquired by Volkswagen – from there the rest is history.
The company name is based on the Latin translation of the founder’s surname. “Horch” means “listen” listen in German and then becomes “audi” in Latin. The iconic four rings on the emblem represents one of four manufacturing companies that banded together to create the Auto Union – the predecessor of Audi.
Audi’s slogan is “Vorsprung durch Technik”, translating to “Advancement through Technology”.
