This Audi R8 is for sale in the used car market and is similarly priced like a Fortuner.

The Audi R8 here is located in Chandigarh and it is a 2010 model. The best part is that this car has done only 14,000 km on the odometer, which is not much at all. The seller has put a price tag of Rs 45 lakhs, which is only Rs 2 lakhs more expensive than the Toyota Fortuner top-end in Bangalore, Karnataka. This Audi R8 is in a top-notch condition and since it has been used so less, all the electronics and mechanicals are in a pristine condition.

The pictures of the car from all around show that there are no dents or scratches on the body. It is the 2010 Audi R8 V8 version. It is currently owned by the second owner, which means that the new buyer will become the third owner of the Audi R8.

This car is powered by a 4.2-litre V8 naturally-aspirated petrol engine. The engine produces a maximum power of 420 PS and peak torque of 430 Nm. Audi used to offer this model of the car with a manual as well as an automatic transmission option. This version for sale is an automatic version.

This 2010 Audi R8 can do 0-100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 301 km/h. It sends power to all the wheels through the Quattro system. Even though it is 4WD, the system is rear-wheel drive biased, which means that it is more likely to do oversteer instead of understeer. The car gets launch-control mode too, which can propel it quickly during a drag race or a timed lap time. There are also paddle shifters to control to take control of the transmission. The R8 was launched after Volkswagen Group bought the Lamborghini brand. The engine and transmission used in the R8 are heavily inspired by the Lamborghini. Also, the car offers a range of futurists features including the magnetorheological dampers that stiffens up to provide high cornering speed.
