Over a decade later, 2010 Audi R8 V10 still at the peak of its powers, includes new exhaust system, integrated radar detection.
Is there anything more timeless than the Audi R8? Over two generations spanning from the turn of the millennium to the New ’20s, the R8 and R8 V10 represent to this day the pinnacle of everything Ingolstadt has built.
Thus, this 2010 R8 V10 we happened upon on Bring a Trailer the other day should easily find a new home with plenty of roads to play upon, laying down all the luxury and performance it offers along the way.
This silver R8 V10 landed in Virginia before moving to Maryland, Florida, and its current home of Tennessee. Along the way – likely after leaving Virginia – it picked up an integrated radar detection system. Once in Tennessee with its current owner, a new sound was given to the Audi via a Fabspeed exhaust system. The forged 19-inch wheels will need some new rubber to replace the 2012 date code tires. Tires from 2019 and 2020 are on the Audi, too; those should be okay.
The R8 V10’s 5.2-liter V10 and six-speed manual logged over 52,000 miles in the 12 years it’s been on the road. Each mile, of course, felt all 525 horses and their combined 391 lb-ft of torque rumble over them, including more than a few spirited gallops down the highway. Whether they got to go 220 miles per hour – like the speedometer suggests – is a matter we’ll likely never know about.
Whether flying down the road or cruising on the street, though, the R8 V10’s black leather seats provide all the luxury and warmth anyone could ever want. The driver will definitely love rowing through the gated shifter for the six-speed. And all will love hearing their favorite songs coming out the Bang & Olufsen stereo system, too.
A 2022 R8 V10 performance with quattro starts at nearly $200,000. This one is nearly half that as of this post. One could say this is due to all the supply chain issues pumping up used vehicle prices through the roof. We would say it’s because an Audi like this is truly special.
