    Audi R8 V10 in the Flesh!

    Was at my local dealer today (Tetbury Audi), they had just taken delivery of a V10 R8 for the showroom, OMG! What a stunner, in race blue with silver blades, totally awesome. Lots of subtle aeathetic changes of the regular 4.2. I loved it, but sadly I'll have ot stock with my A4 S-line for a while longer!!! Ah well, such is life!
    DELIVERED : 2014 Q5 S-Line Plus, 2.0Tdi S-Tronic, Phantom Black, Power Fold Mirrors, Heated Seats

    SOLD : 2013 A4 Avant Black Edition, 2.0Tdi Multitronic, (177bhp), Phantom Black, Leather/Alcantara, Auto dimming/Folding Mirrors, Mobile Phone Low, Heated Seats, Interior Light pack, 30mm S-line Suspension.

    Seen a few on the road, stunning! My friend's brother has 1, he's been in the V8 and the V10, he said the V10 is in a different league to the V8....

    I work for Southend Audi and we now have the Spider in our showroom, and our Sepang Blue V10 is now the current demo, it is very yummy, ive driven the V8 on the road but even just driving the V10 round the site, you can tell the difference!

    BE CAREFUL IT WILL KILL YOU!

    Being totally honest (but biased) I didn't feel a difference in the V10, in comparison to the V8. The noise is significantly less throaty on the V10 however!
