For the first time in Forza history, I finally got my hands on the brand new Audi R8 V10 or to be precise, the Audi R8 V10 plus. The facelifted version of the R8 looks pretty much the same but with the addition of the V10 plus model, it truly sets apart from the old R8 V10 model, which you can find one on Forza Motorsport 5.

Question is, does the plus version of the Audi R8 V10 really is an improvement to the old Audi R8 V10? To find out, I went to the Top Gear Test Track using both the old R8 V10 and the new R8 V10 plus model. Fastest time is the winner.

For a quick briefing about the new Audi R8 V10 plus; it uses the Audi R8 5.2 FSi quattro as its base. The R8 V10 Plus features a new S tronic double clutch transmission as well as the updated version of the 5.2 V10 engine generating 550HP of power output.

With those improvements, the R8 V10 Plus can accumulate a 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of around 197mph.


The old Audi R8 V10 finished at the time of 1:22.314 while the new Audi R8 V10 plus finished at 1:21.675, a second quicker. So, there we have it. The new R8 V10 Plus really done some improvements to keep Audi's first bonafide supercar with some Lamborghini components in it fresh and ready having aged through the years. Well, I'm glad I finally got behind the wheel of this facelifted R8 V10.
