Welcome to the crème de la crème of the Audi racing effort, a car that goes from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds: the limited edition Audi R8 V10 Decennium! Attaining an immense 602-power to its horses, the V10 Decennium culminates years of excellence with the V10 engine. The naturally aspirated 5.2 FSI engine in its most potent output grade constitutes the R8 V10 Decennium model’s core. With supreme torque coming in at 413 lb-ft combined with a Quattro 7-speed S-tronic transmission, it vaults the special edition V10 Decennium model to a prime track speed of 205 mph. Our local Audi dealer, Audi Gainesville of Gainesville, FL, said numbers 173 to 222 of this model (the final 50 units of this particular edition), will be accessible in America from the total global production of 222– so when we say limited edition, it means it! Plus, it looks so good we want to frame it on the wall! Let’s get into a bit more of this deluxe vehicle, paying some attention to the car built around the powertrain.
Individualized Interior Design Elements
The premier cabin of the R8 V10 Decennium is realized completely in smooth black treatments and finishes, with items like gloss carbon fiber inlays and diamond stitching both in gloss black color. Sport seats, also black, get distinguishing stitching in a copper tint. A “Decennium” logo embellishes the door panels over the armrest, the inlays in the door sill trims (made of gloss carbon fiber), as well as the middle console, and then even splashes out in light onto the ground if the door is opened! In fact, the door light outlines the model’s consecutive limited-edition number against the ground, enhanced by the “Decennium” logo alongside it. The middle console has some intense design craftsmanship: It establishes a rococo and patented (by Audi) partial-matte finish that gets sanded down via using a specific powder to a few thousandths of a millimeter. The selector lever and the black twelve o’clock notched steering wheel are both found with Alcantara and highlight copper-colored stitching, as do the door armrest, the door rail, and the center armrest.
Exterior design Items of interest
The model is granted only in coupe configuration, and in America, all 50 that are obtainable here are painted in Mythos Black Metallic, which is always a good look on an Audi! With special edition paint options available worldwide (and a performance Spyder setup), you may see the R8 V10 Decennium in other colors of course. Look for the fine touches of matte bronze finishing for the intake manifolds of the 5.2 FSI engine as well as its milled 20″ wheels. On the exterior, note that the side blades, the mirror casings, and the rear wings are constructed from gloss carbon fiber. The side sills, the front spoiler, and the diffuser are covered in gloss black, reinforced by great-looking blackened Audi rings & badges, just in case anyone left didn’t know what kind of car this was. The Audi R8 V10 Decennium Limited Edition sure is a sight to behold, and we understand if your heading to your next auto show specifically to see one! See you there!
