The limited edition R8 quattro is powered by the 5.2-litre V10 FSI engine developing 525bhp and 530Nm of torque. The engine is connected to the R tronic single-clutch automated manual gear box. The super car goes from 0 to 100km/h in a mere 3.9 seconds.

Limited to only 30 units, the special edition R8 is going at 2,628,000 Yuan (S$518,542). With rising affluence in China, you can bet that this will not be the last dedicated R8 for the economic powerhouse.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
