Audi celebrates a decade of the R8 V10 with Decennium Edition


There will only be 222 units of the limited edition model, which will go on sale in conjunction with the new Audi R8.

The name Decennium is taken from the Latin word “decade” to celebrate 10 years of success of the V10 on the road and in motorsports.

Available only as a coupe, the (approx. RM1.02 million) Decennium can be had with an exclusive Daytona Grey paint job finished with a matte effect, complimented by 20-inch wheels finished in matte bronze.

Also in matte bronze is the intake manifold of the 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine with 620 hp and 580 Nm of torque – good for a 0 to 100 km/h time of 3.1 seconds. Top speed is rated at 331 km/h.

Inside the dark black interior, Decennium logos adorn the centre console, doors and on the carbon fibre door sills.

The “polished look” on the door sills is roughed a few thousandths of a millimeter using a special powder. When the door lights come on, not only is the Decennium logo projected on the ground, but so does the model’s series number.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
