Audi India on thursday hosted Audi Range Drive event in Bengaluru in presence of Joe King, Audi India Head and brand ambassador Virat Kohli. The main agenda of the event was to launch the new Audi R8 V10 Plus, which was showcased at Auto Expo 2016 back in February. The Audi R8 V10 Plus is priced at Rs 2.55 Crore (ex-showroom, Mumbai) and Rs 2.60 Crore (ex-showroom, Bengaluru).
“Since our entry into India in 2007, we have defined the way the luxury car market has evolved, by launching more than 40 products in India, which include a successful range of Sedans, SUVs and performance cars. Luxury to us is about choice and our wide range of models showcased here today has helped us in building an extremely strong foundation in the country. We are buoyant on India and are looking forward to a sustained profitable growth as we complete a decade in India,” said Joe King, Head, Audi India.
The Audi R8 V10 Plus is powered by a 5.2 litre V10 FSI engine producing 610 PS and 560 Nm of maximum torque, can do 0-100 in 3.2 seconds, and has a top speed of 330 km/h. The car also has a cylinder on demand technology.
The Bengaluru event showcased Audi’s complete product portfolio in India including the A8 L, A6, A4, A3, A3 Cabriolet, RS 7, RS 6 Avant, S5, TT Coupé, Q7, Q5, and the Q3 quattro. The star attraction was of course the new Audi R8 V10 Plus, the most powerful and fastest production Audi ever built. The program presented an opportunity to experience the capabilities of these vehicles on different kinds of tracks.
“Our focus is on the road ahead for the next 10 years. We will be introducing products in new segments, with new body styles, new design language and new technologies. We will also focus on strengthening our dealer network by introducing new customer touchpoints and innovative concepts like the Audi Mobile Terminal which is already a success in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. We will continue to provide the best to our customers in India and will launch at least 10 new products in 2016,” added King.
