Have your eye on the new V10-powered Audi R8 5.2 FSI Quattro? You're not alone, but you'll have to pay big for the privilege as Audi has announced U.S. pricing for its top-of-the-line supercar.
The R8 5.2 packs two more cylinders, 105 more horses and 74 more lb-ft of torque, for which buyers will have to pay nearly $32,000 more than the existing V8 version. While the eight-cylinder R8 4.2 sells for $114,200 with a manual transmission or $123,300 for the R-Tronic version, the ten-cylinder R8 5.2, as has now been revealed, goes for $146,000 with a clutch or $155,100 without, all prices before the $1,200 destination charge. But if that seems hefty, consider that one of the first examples to reach the United States went for $500,000 in a recent charity auction.
