Audi R8 V10 Performance
With the new Audi R8, you do get increased performance but thankfully there is still all 10-cylinders in place.

With 671 fully electric horsepower and 612 lb-ft of fully electric torque, the E-Tron is not one to mess with.
When dealing with mainly anything concerning the automotive world, you begin to realize that it's truly a numbers game. Along with this comes the idea that bigger is better. This, of course, is backed up by the fact that you could push 1500 horsepower out od a W16 vs the 789 horses you can pish out of a V12. On top of these behemoths, most of them have some type of forced induction which in return makes them more powerful. While if you're in the market for pure power forced induction is by every means the way to go, but on the other hand, there is still some beauty in a naturally aspirated engine.
10 years and three model years later Audi has finally introduced a special edition r8 celebrating their use of a naturally aspirated V10 for 10 years. The Decennium model is not only among one of the most limited variants by Audi ever made, but it's also their fastest production car ever.
Audi hasn't really made many other limited production run R8 models aside from the GT model for the first gen and the RWS for the second gen. Audi releases these limited editon nad special mdoels because it atracts peoples attention. The RWS was such a successful car because it was the first time ever that Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system wasnt in Audi's flagship supercar.
Pricing for the Decciniun is yet to be announced, but it's expected to start at around 250,000 with only 222 units ever being produced. Audi has also yet to release pricing for other R8 variants such as the V10 plus along woth the spyder models.
