2016 Audi R8 V10 Plus and E-Tron Coupe

By Quinn L.V. McDonald

Just before the 2015 Geneva Auto Show opened its curtains, Audi revealed to the world the new faces of the R8.

Pictured above in blue is the new R8 E-Tron, an all electric variant with enough power to hang with its gas brethren. The battery-powered car still churns out 456hp and hits 60mph in just under 4 seconds, with a range of 280 miles.

But if old fashion vroom is still your thing, the 2016 Audi R8 V10 (pictured below in orange) replaces the old 8 cylinder base model with a top tier V 10 motor.  The new base model gas R8 will come equipped with a 5.2 liter 10 cylinder engine pumping out 540 horsepower, and allowing it to sprint to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. If even faster is what you fancy, then opt for the V10 Plus model, which bumps the horsepower up to 610, launching you to 60 in only 3.2 seconds.

The R8's will range from about $120,000 to $200,000, so you gotta be making serious coin to cop any of these super cars. But if you strike the lotto sometime soon, these Quattro demons are set to drop before the year is out. Check the R8's trailer and more photos below. (Photo Credit: Drew Phillips/Audi)
