Deal & Drive, one of Luxembourg’s top luxury car dealerships, has just taken delivery of an absolutely unique 2016 Audi R8 V10 Plus. Apart from the fact that this car is a ‘Plus, and these things are rare to come by, it features ‘Exclusive’ paint job and interior trim.
On the outside, this Audi R8 V10 Plus boasts a sort of matte gold paint finish which should look terrible – because it’s gold – but somehow combined with all the carbon parts of the Plus treatment, it just looks superb. The contrast between the exterior color, the black wheels, and carbon aero parts including front and rear spoiler, side vents, and rear diffuser, create a car that is serious eye candy.
The interior trim is also brilliant, featuring Mocha colored leather for the seat upholstery, center console and door cards. A lot of people have criticized the new R8 for having a minimalistic and rather bland interior design. With this treatment that problem has been rectified satisfactorily. If anything, it makes the minimalistic design make a lot of sense as it makes the two-tone effect kind of pop.
Performance-wise, the Audi R8 V10 Plus is powered by a 610 horsepower Lamborghini-derived V10 engine, hooked up to a S-tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel-drive system. The combo is good for 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of 330 km/h (205.1 mph).
