Video – Audi R8 V10 Plus heads to the track in new ad

The brand new Audi R8 V10 Plus is making a comeback in a new official teaser video released on the company’s UK account on YouTube. Here we see the range-topping model flaunting its rear wing with 610 PS available which makes it the most powerful production car Audi has ever launched. This particular car also has the optional laser headlights that originally debuted on the first generation R8 LMX special edition.

From the steering wheel, the driver has access to no less than 20 controls – including four new satellite buttons – and there’s also a performance mode available for the Drive Select system which upon activation will enable the driver to set the dynamic parameters based on the road conditions. The driver can also set the digital display to show info such as lap times and tire pressure by using the control buttons mounted on the steering wheel, creating an experience that is similar to a full-blown racecar.

The second generation Audi R8 V10 and R8 V10 Plus are both available on order across Europe and will soon be joined by the fully electric e-tron variant. There’s no word about the latter’s price tag, but it’s safe to say it will be a lot more expensive than the conventionally-powered version and it should be mentioned this R8 e-tron will be a build to order model.
