Audi AG unveiled the Audi R8 V10 on December 8, 2008. It uses a 5.2 litre FSI engine, based on the unit in the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. Compared to the V8 variant, the R8 V10's performance numbers are enhanced. Audi states the new 0 to 100 kilometres per hour (0.0 to 62.1 mph) time as only 3.9 seconds, other changes to the V10 version of the R8 include some aesthetic differences such as all-LED headlights and interior enhancements like the Bang & Olufsen 465 watt sound system, and a more aggressive body styling, larger rear brakes and different wheels. The Spyder version was formally unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Compared with the coupé model, the convertible had extra chassis support and a pair of roll-over safety bars, as well as minor changes such as the location of the fuel filler. It was powered by the uneven firing 5.2 FSI V10 engine.
