Audi enjoys an exclusive fan following in India and the past records related to satisfaction of customers, are quite pleasing. Beyond any reasonable doubt, R8 V10 Plus (new version) is more dynamic in all contexts than its predecessor, the R8 V10. This four-wheeler is capable of achieving the maximum speed of 317 kmph. The car is exhibiting carbon-ceramic brakes that are lighter and hence would facilitate in reducing weight. Audi India did reveal that the car could have hit the Indian market quite earlier but the company was dubious about introducing the concept of carbon ceramic brakes to the markets of India.

However, the company took a call finally and went ahead with the decision of launching the car for Indian terrain. There are no qualms that due to the hefty price tag, there will be limited number of buyers who will show interest towards buying this luxury car, but at the same time, there are no doubts that this car will prove to be an apt choice as it is a perfect blend of luxury, performance and comfort.
