After yesterday’s first details on the most powerful R8 ever, Audi revealed today new image gallery of the R8 V10. The car will make its world debut in January at the Detroit Auto Show, and sales will begin in the second quarter of 2009.

Although it’s the minor exterior details (such as new grille, new wheels, and oval exhaust tips) that distinguish the newest R8 in the family, it’s the engine that really counts. The R8 V10 will be powered by the same 5.2 liter V10 as the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. The engine is rated at 525 hp, which is 105 more than the V8 version but about 27 less than the Gallardo.
