Audi R8 in India soon...

The Maruti 800, Hyundai Santro and Honda City are cars that do the job of providing transportation from point A to point B but the spice of life, however, comes from exciting exotic cars like, say, an extremely desirable, wish-I had-one, yellow Lamborghini Murcielago. So here comes, another contender in this desirability stakes - Audi R8, which has recently joined the ranks of these super-exalted, blindingly fast, super cars.
German luxury car manufacturer, Audi, will launch its exclusive mid-engine R8 in the later part of 2008 in India. The spectacular model, which is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform, combines its superior performance with the unmistakable design proportions of a pure sports car.

The Audi R8 is powered by a 4.2 L FSI V8 engine developing 420 PS (414 hp/309 kW) and 317 ft-lb (430 N-m), a 0-100kmph in 4.6 seconds.
And…the top speed is 301kp/h!! The company, however, has not decided about the pricing of the car in the Indian market.
The Audi R8, which has won several awards in Germany and Europe, would be available at the company's seven exclusive dealerships in Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Pune, Hyderabad and Bangalore.
