Audi India launched the most powerful and fastest production Audi ever built – the next generation Audi R8 V10 Plus at a showroom located in Mumbai. The naturally aspirated 5.2 FSI quattro V10 mid-engine produces 610 hp (449 kW) of power and propels the car from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 330 km/h. Much lighter than its predecessor, the R8 V10 Plus comes with a price tag of INR 2.55 crore (Ex-showroom, Maharashtra).
Audi Mumbai West is managed by Krishiv Motors. This is their second facility after Audi Thane. Spread over a total area of 12,000 sq. ft, the Audi Mumbai West showroom has a honeycomb aluminum facade on the exterior. With a display area that can accommodate 12 vehicles, the showroom displays the entire model range available in India.
Speaking on the occasion, Joe King, Head, Audi India, said that the previous model was already the sporty vanguard of the brand – and this applies to the second generation Audi R8 even more. The newly conceptualized high performance sports car has been made even tauter and stronger, both on and off the race track. Embodied in its DNA is the know-how acquired in the numerous car racing successes that Audi has achieved over the years. In fact, 50 percent of the components of the new Audi R8 are from the Audi R8 LMS. With this next generation Audi R8 V10 Plus coming in, they are now unleashing the perfect poster boy for contemporary panache, outstanding performance and daily usability.
Speaking on the occasion of the launch of the new Audi R8 V10 Plus at Audi Mumbai West, Gautam Modi, Dealer Principal, Audi Mumbai West said, “We’re excited to extend our association with the Audi brand through our second dealership in Maharashtra within six months. With the launch of the new Audi R8 V10 Plus, we’re reiterating our commitment to deliver and delight the brand’s discerning customers by offering an extraordinary experience at par with Audi’s international dealership standards.”
