Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro: Road tested

Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro
Here’s a nice short road test with the Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro.

By making available an R8 with a monster 525-hp V-10 engine—complementing the 420-hp V-8 model that was introduced two years ago—Audi has elevated its exotic-looking two-seater from “almost-a-supercar” status to a true competitor in the high-performance realm above mere sports cars. The 105-hp increase comes from a 5.2-liter, direct-injection V-10 that is virtually identical to the engine found in the Lambor­ghini Gallardo LP560-4. Unique engine programming and intake and exhaust systems are the chief differences in the Audi engine over the Italian job.
