R8 V10 plus Coupe Specifications
The real Audi R8 V10 plus
For 2014, the R8 V-10 will receive a new Plus model. Plus refers here to the additional 25 hp that Audi has extracted from the 5.2-liter V-10.
But the biggest change is the S tronic, a new seven-speed double-clutch automatic transmission. It is a $7800 option for all R8s and replaces the clunky automatic-manual transmission called R tronic. With the S, shifting up with partial throttle is free of any jerking, which gives the R8 the manners of living in traffic. For maximum acceleration, the S tronic features a starting control system that keeps the engine running at 4500 rpm before the first gear clutch is engaged.
The R8 owner’s manual recommends that you look for a free, empty road before using the start control, as this could cause unwanted attention. This is good advice. Accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds and passing the quarter mile in 11.4 seconds at 126 miles per hour certainly caught our attention. That is two tenths faster to 60 and in the quarter mile than the 525 hp R8 R tronic.
Other changes for 2014 include LED front and rear lights, a revised radiator grille design and round exhaust tailpipes. Our plus came with the $5,000 full-grain leather interior and cross-stitched seats. Apart from the rough ride, the Plus has a thick luxury veneer that matches its base price of $174,795. Choosing the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic Plus model costs at least $182,595; a regular V-10 starts at $155,450.
