Video: Audi R8 V10 driving in the rain
What could be more beautiful than a high performance sports car driving in the rain, everything from the sound of the super car cutting through the precipitation, tiny droplets of water racing up the windscreen and rooster tails being shot up from behind the car as well as the occasional controlled slide on the less than grippy surface. Well thanks to our friends at Sharp Magazine we can bring you this red hot V10 powered Audi R8 super car dance on a damp race track.
The R8 V10 will be powered by the same 5.2 Liter V10 power plant as the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. The engine is rated at 525 HP, which is 105 HP more than the standard V8 R8 but still about 27 less than the Lamborghini. Officially known as the Audi R8 5.2 FSI Quattro, the new super car can go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.9 seconds and equipped with Audi’s optional R-tronic semi automatic gearbox and a long enough stretch of pavement, the V10 R8 will reach a top speed of around 196 MPH.
