Exclusive Audi R8 V10 Test Drive!!

June 25, 2009

What a day!  I got a call from the local Audi dealership that I just purchased the 2009 S5 from mentioning a few open slots to test drive the newest Audi: the V10 R8.

I didn’t take long to say yes and make the appointment.  The R8 was only available for one day and for a few select Audi owners to test drive so I was definitely happy to get this opportunity.

Upon driving over to the dealership, another Audi customer was already enjoying their test drive as it zoomed by me going the other way.  The LED front lights can be spotted from miles away and the bright red finish is hard to miss as well.

R8 V10 Specs and Stats:

  • 5.2L FSI v10
  • 525 horsepower
  • 390 lb-ft
  • 8700 redline
  • 0-60 in 3.9 seconds
  • Top speed of just under 200 mph
  • 3571 pound curb weight
  • 235/35/19 and 295/30/19 Pirelli PZero tires

Notable changes over the predecessor:

  • Larger carbon fiber side blade inlets for greater cooling
  • Dual oval exhaust
  • Larger rear diffuser
  • Aluminum engine compartment vents

The car was equipped with every option available including the R Tronic transmission.  If it’s not manual, I tend to have doubts but this transmission did not disappoint.  Auto blipping downshifts, vicious up shifts when under full acceleration and smooth shifts when cruising around.

Enough babling, here are the pictures and video. Enjoy!
