Audi R8 V10 Road Trip

We’ve known Audi of America to be staffed by largely level-headed, responsible human beings. Yet somehow company officials have handed us the key to a freshly minted 2010 R8 5.2 FSI (that would be the one with the 525-hp V10 bolted behind the seats) and allowed us to drive away with no babysitter, speed or distance restrictions or even a GPS ankle tether.

You might remember that we’ve done this before, when the V8 version of the Audi R8 debuted. This time we will likely eat less BBQ, but we will certainly be covering as many miles of interesting (and not) roads as we can cram in. Some of those might have Christmas Trees at the beginning of them.

Audi didn’t specifically say that we couldn’t take its $147,200 silver bullet to the racetrack. Heck, the company let us take the beast around Infineon Raceway in Sonoma. We’ll depart from there, head to San Francisco to pick up Ed, and from there, well, we don’t know. We’ll figure that out once we’re driving, fast. Join us over the next few days.
