Ever wondered why the Audi R8 V10 Plus costs $200,000?

This video addresses this question

The Audi R8 was always Audi's motorsport knowledge transferred onto a road-legal car. But when such know-how is involved, the car's final price is bound to go through the roof.

However, the current Audi R8 V10 is a big step forward from the model it replaces, both when it comes to horsepower and build quality.

Of course, technology has evolved a lot since the first-gen Audi R8 saw daylight in 2007, and Ingolstadt had all the time in the world to gauge the clientele's desire and come up with a more enticing product.

Case in point, the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus. As the name states, it uses a 5.2-liter TFSI V10 powerplant that churns out 610 hp, but the new and more potent engine is not the supercar's only quirk.

As highlighted by the video below, the new R8 V10 Plus is close to a masterpiece when it comes down to build quality and the amount of technology Audi poured inside its cockpit.

Since summer won't be gone for a couple of weeks, Audi's open-top R8 V0 Plus Spyder is still a joy to behold, whether you choose this double-trouble commercial or the photo gallery.
