The R8 V10 Plus is an Audi Engineering Orgy

Supercar

The R8 V10 Plus is Audi's answer to new supercar competitors that threaten this mid-engine wonder's prestige.

It’s hard to believe that the Audi R8 was first unveiled back in 2007. It was a game changer in the world of supercars due to it being a well-rounded daily driver in addition to its incredible performance figures. But that was nearly seven years ago and the competition has very much caught up with the R8. With a major refresh this past year, the R8 continues to be a standout, but are Audi’s upgrades enough to keep the mid-engined, all-wheel drive Ferrari-fighter a true competitor?

Renowned racer Justin Bell gets behind the wheel of a 2014 Audi R8 V10 Plus Coupe to find. With a road test that takes him through the canyons of Malibu to the track, Bell does ask a good question: "What does the 'Plus' stand for?" Tune into this mouth-watering test drive video to find out.
