If you’ve been ready 10 years to shop for an Audi R8 V10, the all-new Decennium version has become made for you. Decennium is Latin for “decade,” which is how lengthy the R8 V10 has been round, and Audi is rolling out a unique run of 222 vehicles to rejoice simply as European income of the refreshed 2019 R8 start.
The Decennium coupes provide a distinct Daytona Gray matte paint with 20-inch wheels and feature an engine cowl in matte bronze. Its front spoiler, aspect sills, and diffuser are gloss black, including the Audi rings and other badges. If that perhaps sounds too drab to your tastes, the special-version R8 can also be ordered within the metal shades of Suzuka Gray, Floret Silver, Mythos Black, Ascari Blue, and Kemora Gray.
Positioned at the back of the motive force like several correct engines must be, the clearly aspirated five.2-liter V-10 engine hooks to a seven-pace dual-snatch automated and offers 620 horsepower and 428 lb-feet of torque, the better of two available outputs for the brand new R8. The “normal” V-10 grants 570 horses and 398 lb-ft. Audi is claiming a zero-to-sixty two-mph time of three.1 second, in addition to a Vmax of 206 mph.
The Decennium’s cabin is dotted with special emblems and masses of smooth carbon-fiber inlays. The recreation seats have Alcantara inserts with diamond quilting, and copper-colored comparison stitching is applied to the center armrest, door panels, and Alcantara-wrapped guidance wheel, which also has a hash on the 12 o’clock role.
The R8 V10 Decennium is going on sale in Germany soon and could cost €54,000 more than the primary, lower-output coupe, or €220,000—that’s kind of $250,000 at these days’ exchange rates. It’s uncertain if any Decennium fashions will be presented stateside, but it’s not going. Every day 2019 R8 will hit American shorelines later this 12 months, and pricing has to be announced.
