Euromobil launched the Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI quattro in Malaysia on ( Thursday ) 18th March 2010 and also officially opened its Audi Kuala Lumpur showroom in Jalan Imbi, Bukit Bintang. The event was officiated by the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The permanent all-wheel drive vehicle comes with a choice of manual six-speed transmission or optionally with R tronic, which enables the driver to change gears in an instant via rocker switches on the steering wheel, with a Launch Control function available with both tranny types.
The exterior of the R8 V10 naturally differs distinctively from that of the V8 version, notably at the front (with all-LED headlights part of the parcel), at the sideblades - that provide the engine with intake air - and at the tail end.
Standard equipment includes heated seat covers of Fine Nappa leather, a navigation system plus, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, automatic air conditioning as well as 19-inch, 10-spoke Y design wheels wearing 235/35 front and 295/30 series tyres. There's always optional kit, of course, and these include items such as carbon fibre ceramic brake discs.
As for the Audi Kuala Lumpur showroom, it's a one and a half storey building aimed at giving the marque higher visibility and market presence. Designed around the brand's Terminal concept, the showroom features a total of 8,048sq ft in built-up space. The location, while prime, does however translate into it being a 2S outlet - the service equation will be taken up by a new service centre in Jalan Chan Sow Lin, which is slated to open in May.
