Carbon, downforce and specialness aplenty for ultra-limited R8
Meet the Audi R8 V10 Plus Audi Sport Performance Parts R8 Edition… of which a mere five will come to the UK. The 602bhp 5.2-litre V10 and quattro allwheel drive remain, but a new carbon-reinforced aero package brings a significant increase in downforce. Nearly 50 per cent more at 205mph. There’s also lighter 20in wheels, Cup 2 tyres and ceramic brakes. Which helps justify its £176,560 price. You get rarity, of course; those five UK cars are part of a 44-car worldwide run, all of which come in Misano Red.
