In pictures: Audi R8 V10 Decennium celebrates a decade with V10 engine
Audi is celebrating the success story of the V10 engine with the Audi R8 V10 Decennium. It stands for ten years of fascination on the road and success in motorsport.
The special model is available as a coupe and painted in exclusive Daytona Gray, matt effect. Right from the exterior design, the Audi R8 V10 Decennium makes its character abundantly clear. The milled 20-inch wheels and the intake manifold of the 5.2 FSI engine are finished in matt bronze. The interior of the Audi R8 V10 Decennium is also finished entirely in black, with the inlays in gloss carbon fiber adding highlights. The quilted rhombus pattern stitching on the sport seats is finished in gloss black; the contrasting stitching in a gloss copper tone. The selector lever and the steering wheel – with Alcantara rim and black 12 o’clock marking – feature copper-colored stitching, as do the center armrest, the door armrest and the door rail. As with all R8 variants, the Audi virtual cockpit and the MMI navigation plus come standard. A “Decennium” logo adorns the center console, the doors, the inlays in the gloss carbon fiber door sill trims as well as the logo projector. The naturally aspirated 5.2 FSI in its most powerful output rating forms the heart of the R8 V10 Decennium. With 456 kW (620 hp) and maximum torque of 580 Nm (427.8 lb-ft) it catapults the edition model from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.1 seconds and on to a top speed of 331 km/h (205.7 mph). The door light projects the “Decennium” logo onto the ground, supplemented by the model’s sequential limited-edition number. The name Decennium comes from Latin and means “decade". The edition model with 222 units coincides with the sales launch of the new Audi R8.
