This Two-Tone R8 V10 Plus By Audi Exclusive Looks Rather Clever

It takes quite a lot of skill in order to make an extraordinary car look inconspicuous and awesome at the same time.

Of course, Audi pulled it off with this new-gen R8 V10 Plus, which can be seen here courtesy of Audi Deutschland’s official Facebook page, spoiled by Audi Exclusive and wearing a Nardo Gray body.

Also, the Orange finish is a great touch, since it works perfectly with the rest of the car – though if you see it from certain angles, you’d probably think to yourself that it’s not all that outlandish.

There are of course ways in which you can make your R8 stand out a lot more. Take this one for example – wearing Santorini Blue. It will definitely draw your attention more than any gray R8 would, though once you’re inside the V10 Plus version, you probably care very little about color combinations.

The Audi R8 V10 Plus sets you back €187,400 if you live in Germany, and that’s without any of the custom paint or the optional 20″ wheels. In terms of performance, I for one can’t wait to see it show up on the drag strip and take on rivals such as the Porsche 911 Turbo, Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari 488 and the McLaren 650S

The R8 V10 Plus features a 5.2 liter FSI V10 engine, good for 610 PS and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to these figures, the V10 Plus can get from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds. In theory, this car should do very well when getting off the line against say the 488 GTB or the 650S.
