It would seem that it should be very difficult to keep onroad is so fast car. But this is an absolute misconception. Audi R8 V10 fulfills any wishes of the driver on the road. If necessary, gain speed, he dials it, brakes it if necessary, brakes. This is the real dream of any driver.

The updated version of the Audi R8 V10 Spyder is prettyvery different from the fellow. First of all I would like to note the work of engineers who reduced the center of gravity of the engine thanks to a new dry lubrication system. The base R8 has 8-piston calipers in the front, as well as 4-piston calipers at the rear. Brake discs with a diameter of 365 mm at the rear and 380 in front. If desired, you can install ceramic brakes, the discs of which will be made of composite material. It, in turn, consists of silicon carbide and carbon fiber. The installation of these discs will increase the life of the brakes up to 300 thousand kilometers.

To appreciate all the benefits of the Audi R8 2012,you need to test it on the racing track, which we did. Seated more comfortably behind the wheel, and this is possible thanks to the ideal seat, start the car and press the button "sport". This action will make the car even more dynamic. We tested the car in rainy weather, but this did not in any way affect its obedience. The stabilization system and all wheel drive work brilliantly. In order to control the car, you need only a small correction of the steering wheel. This effect was the result of a decrease in the center of gravity, of which we have already spoken.

Inside the Audi R8 V10 you feel great. The one who already sat in it will remember the hereditary traits. Absolutely all the driver controls are centered around it. Passengers can hardly get information about the speed, because the speedometer with a tachometer is recessed into deep wells.

The first hundred on the speedometer flies instantly,It seems that R8 just gnaws the asphalt underneath. The transition from one transmission to another is felt literally by the whole body. For some, this is a disadvantage, but how do you feel the speed! For those who prefer a smoother gearshift, you need to choose a mechanical box. Naturally, the driver will have several times more to strain. A "machine" it can get rid of it.

Many experts call the Audi R8 V10 the mostcivil supercar, and we agree with this. As for the nearest competitors, it has a lower fuel consumption. It is perfectly suited for daily use. Even on Russian roads, he will be able to last a long time without resorting to the services of service centers. However, it can not be said that it is inferior in terms of technical characteristics. If the car can survive in our country, then it certainly deserves the title of the most popular among its class.
