More test numbers for the 2014 Audi R8 V10 plus - 11.4@126 1/4 mile, 3689 pound curb weight
Here are more test numbers for the facelifted Audi R8 V10 Plus
model with the 550 horsepower 5.2 liter FSI V10 motor and 7-speed S-Tronic dual clutch transmission. Car and driver was able to get a healthy 11.4@126 out of the car in the 1/4 mile which lines up exactly with what German magazine AMS was able to hit
. Edmunds got a slightly better elapsed time at 11.3 but their trap speed was lower at 123.8 miles per hour
Curb weight numbers all line up as Edmunds weighed the car at 3676 pounds and Car and Driver weighed it at 3689 pounds. So, not super light as the dual clutch trans is adding a little bit of weight.
Definitely a very quick car in stock form and the dual clutch transmission is giving approximately three tenths of elapsed time versus the R-Tronic although the R-Tronic V10 had less horsepower so it is difficult to say definitively. Either way, this is the fastest R8 made for the street thus far.
