Audi is refreshing the R8 lineup this year with a new stable of cars and a new top of the line model, the R8 V10 Plus. New this year is a 7-speed S tronic transmission, redesigned headlights, a new grill design, and a bumper with redesigned air inlets. As for power the V8 model will use a 430 hp, 4.2 liter FSI engine which gets the car from 0-62 in 4.3 seconds (4.6 w/ manual) while on its way to a top speed of 186 mph (187 w/ manual). The standard V10 will boast 525 hp, a 0-62 time of 3.6 seconds, and a top speed of 195 mph (196 w/ manual). At the top of the line is the V10 Plus which pushes out 550 hp, a 0-62 time of 3.5 seconds (3.8 w/ manual), and a top speed of 196 mph (198 w/ manual).
The 2013 Audi RS 5 Coupé is the star athlete of the A5 family. It offers the power and handling of a powerful sports car packaged in the body of an alluringly elegant coupe.
The Audi RS 5 features a high-revving 4.2-liter V8 with 450 horsepower and a seven-speed S tronic transmission with launch control program. An innovative crown-gear center differential in the quattro drivetrain transmits power to all four wheels, providing exceptional traction and grip for increased performance.
The Audi A1 Quattro packs 256hp and hits 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds. It’s one sweet compact all-wheel drive ride, if you can manage to get your hands on one. Only 333 unites will be made, and sadly it’ll only be available in Europe. No word on pricing yet.
