Audi to debut 2010 R8 V10 in Detriot

Audi R8 2010

While some automakers are busy dropping out of the Detroit Auto Show, Audi is full steam ahead, preparing to show off the 2010 Audi R8 V10.

The updated super coupe is officially coming to Detroit, packing a 5.2-litre V10 putting out 520 hp and 398 lb.-ft. of torque. Aside from the performance differences to the outgoing model, the V10-powered R8 will use a pair of larger dual exhaust tips rather than the V8 model’s quad outlets. New wheels, upgraded brakes and a few changes to the interior are expected as well.

The heavily rumoured Audi R8 Spyder will hit the European market in late 2009, but little is known yet about the convertible supercar.
