Ever thought of stepping into a multi-national corporation just after completing your graduation? Or perhaps stepping as the CEO of a venture yourself? What about winning a lottery ticket of Rs. 10 crore in your first shot? Well, the lottery thing may still happen, but the chances of the rest are quite low. Likewise, it is totally uncommon for an inexperienced driver to get to ride a 525 bph beastly vehicle and race away without any trouble.
But, if the supercar we are talking about is Audi R8, that carries a staggering V10 badge, there may be better odds of that happening in the real scenario.
Audi R8 is one of the most usable supercars that one can come across. Audi revealed this supremely designed second generation R8 internationally and it’s soon going to make its way into India as well. This beautiful Rs. 2.8 crore masterpiece is handbuilt by highly qualified engineers in Audi’s Neckarsulm facility in Germany.
So, what is it that makes it such a user-friendly supercar ? Probably its because of the super comfy body hugging sports seats. You can enjoy a luxurious,smooth and exuberant riding experience in just two steps:
- Start the engine by twisting the ignition key
- Move the gear to A (Automatic) and there you go!
Once you start driving, you can either stick to the A mode, or you can switch to the manual mode and then make use of the paddle shifters. What’s more, if this is not interesting enough already, then sit back, simply engage the Sports mode and then let the ultra-slick seven speed S-tronic gearbox do the magic for you!
In fact, with the mid-life facelift that took place in 2013, the most important change to the R8 was the gearbox, replacing the ageing R-tronic gearbox. The new gearbox complements the 5.2 litre V10 Lamborghini sourced motor of Audi R8 V10 Plus.
This machine is a stunning package for the car-frenzied people, especially because of the engine (8700 rpm). For maximum output, the S-tronic offers a launch control that will hold the revs up to 4500 rpm before you unleash the brake pedal. Thereafter, the Plus lunges forward and before you know, the car’s meter shifts from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.77 seconds.
The R8 ain’t just about super speed. In fact, it can beautifully take the twists and turns as fast as the laws of physics allows it ! The Quattro all wheel driving system will help you throughout your driving experience, making it even better than what you might have imagined.
