2010 Audi R8 5.2 V10 Confirmed for U.S. - Car News

The one-year countdown begins.

We have received confirmation that the recently revealed Audi R8 5.2 FSI will arrive in the U.S. at the end of 2009 or in early 2010. This news is music to our enthusiast ears.

As the name suggests, this new R8 model gets a high-revving 5.2-liter V-10, which produces 525 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. Zero to 62 mph is quoted at 3.9 seconds, but our tests of a 4.2-liter V-8 model produced a 4.0-second run to 60, so there's a chance that number is conservative. We expect pricing to be at least $150,000, an amount that is sadly anything but conservative.
