Best luxury cars are mostly out of our budget, but that does not mean that we cannot enjoy them. Luxury car brands lSike Audi are trying their best to improvise and bring better technology for car enthusiasts like us. Their supercars are something out of a dream and drive like magic.
One of their most popular supercars is the Audi R8. The R8 is a coupe by Audi. It was launched back in 2006 at the Paris Auto Show. The R8 V10 Plus is considered to be one of the fastest supercars in the world, largely because of its amazing engine and power it generates.

It all begins with a powerful engine. It has a V10 5.2 liter 40-valve DOHC engine with aluminum heads and block with direct fuel injection. It has a displacement rate of 318 cu in, horsepower of 610 at 8250 rpm and torque of 413 lb-ft at 6500 rpm. It has a 7-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting.

It has a very beautiful interior with full leather trims. This R8 coupe has Audi laser light LED headlights. A 12.3 inches touch screen configurable display has all the conventional amenities, but it would not be an Audi if it did not have something new.

Right now, Audi is just offering a coupe model of this car for the masses. However, they do have a Spyder version in development mode, which will be available to us in the next year or so. The price of this coupe will start at $162,900, which is very affordable if you compare it with its main competitors like Lamborghini Aventador that gives you less for a price of $400K and more.
If you have an interest in buying Audi R8, you would have choices between a V10 engine and V10 Plus engine. The Audi virtual cockpit is available in all versions that give you three visual modes like Classic, Sport and Infotainment.
