The new model is scheduled to be available order in the UK in April 2006 for first deliveries in June.
It is Audi’s first ever 10-cylinder model. The car uses a 5.2-litre V10 FSI petrol engine developed using the Lamborghini Gallardo’s 5.0-litre unit as its technical basis, linked to a six-speed tiptronic automatic transmission.
The engine generates 448bhp and reaches 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds. The car has an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. It delivers 20.3mpg.
