• Second win for Audi R8 in World Performance Car category at
World Car of the Year Awards
• Third win out of five for Audi in World Performance Car category
Ingolstadt/New York, April 1, 2010 - The Audi R8 V10 was named as the
2010 World Performance Car at the World Car of the Year Awards ceremony at the
New York Auto Show. This is the second time that the R8 has won the
World Performance Car award: the V8-powered R8 took this award in 2008.
The World Car Awards jurors observed that: "In the opinion of many on the World Car
Awards jury, Audi has at long last satisfied our hunger for a street car that lives up to
the excitement of the original Le Mans series-dominating R8 LMP1 race car."
Developed jointly with quattro GmbH, the Audi R8 V10 is powered by a 5.2 liter direct
injection ten-cylinder engine which develops 386 kW (525 hp), enabling it to sprint
from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in just 3.9 seconds and then to a top speed of
316 km/h (196.35 mph). It features Audi technologies such as quattro permanent
all-wheel drive, a lightweight aluminum body and the innovative all-LED lights.
This is the second World Performance Car award win for the Audi R8: the original
V8-powered version won the same award in 2008. Whether a customer chooses an R8
with a V8 or a V10 engine, they will get a World Performance Car award winner.
This is also the third Word Performance Car award for Audi in the five years that the
award has been on offer: the RS 4 was named as the 2007 World Performance Car.

The truly global nature of the World Car jury is evidence that Audi is hitting the
performance car sweet spot of car lovers around the world.
Since the awards began, Audi has claimed one overall award and five category awards:
2005 Audi A6 World Car of the Year
2007 Audi RS 4 World Performance Car
Audi TT World Car Design of the Year
2008 Audi R8 World Performance Car
Audi R8 World Car Design of the Year
2010 Audi R8 V10 World Performance Car
