The R8 Plus accelerates from 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds and can achieve a top whack of 317km/h. Thus it is 0.1 second quicker in the dash and 3km/h faster in its top speed compared to its regular V10 brother. This is Audi's quickest production car yet.

Internationally, the R8 V10 Plus is about 18,600 euros (approx Rs 13 lakh) more than the regular V10 Coupe.

It remains to be seen how much of a premium Audi India would place on the V10 Plus over the existing Rs 1.57 crore (pre-budget price, now estimated at Rs 1.81 crore) for the V10 Coupe.

Stay tuned for the details.
