sgCarMart – Using Audi's trademark quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, the Audi R8 was first introduced to the world in 2006. The car was exclusively designed and developed by Audi AG's high performance private subsidiary company - quattro GmbH - and is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform.
It was only two years later when the R8 V10 was unveiled, using a bigger and more powerful 5.2-litre FSI engine that's similar to the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. Naturally, like most sports cars, the topless version - dubbed the Spyder - was formally revealed a year later at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Now, it's a mid-life refresh for the car, with a few upgrades that separate itself from the usual batch of R8s. The R8 V10 Plus, as Audi calls it, maintains the fundamentals of the hand-built machine - a two-seater supercar with a high-revving petrol engine.
