Audi gave us a taste of what’s to come at this year’s Geneva Motor Show as they pulled the curtain back on the 2016 Audi R8 V10.
Every year we wonder how cars like the R8 will be improved upon the subsequent year, and every year auto makers like Audi deliver. 2016 will bring to the streets Audi’s most powerful and fastest production vehicle ever. Powered by a 5.2-liter mid-engine V10 engine, this R8 makes 610 ponies, reaching 60 miles per hour from a dead stop in 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of 205 mph. Power is delivered through a shift-by-wire seven-speed S tronic paddle-shift gearbox, and Audi has kept in place the Quattro all-wheel drive system we love so dearly. The brand also managed to shed some weight on the coupe (110 pounds), with the new model now weighing in at 3,205 pounds. The inside is everything you’d expect from a luxury car – near perfection.
