Audi has announced that a new version of its R8 V10 model is now available to order in the UK, alongside updated TT RS and RS 3 models featuring the Audi Sport Edition specification.

The manufacturer has revealed that its new R8 range offers “more power, torque and performance” as well as top speeds of beyond 200mph. The model is available as the 570PS R8 V10 and 610PS R8 V10 performance, with the latter featuring a host of exciting elements including ceramic brakes and a fixed gloss carbon rear spoiler.

Furthermore, the V10 performance Carbon Black specification offers anthracite black 20-inch wheels with red brake calipers, as well as carbon sideblades and a high gloss black finish for the famous Audi rings and badging.

The confirmation that the R8 V10 is returning to the UK range has come just weeks after Audi unveiled its special limited edition Decennium model of the car, which was created to commemorate the V10’s ‘ten-year reign’ as a much-loved road and motorsport engine and was limited to just 222 units worldwide.

Elsewhere, the manufacturer revealed that its latest TT RS and RS 3 models feature the 2.5-litre TFSI, which combines 400PS output with 480Nm of torque. All of this adds up to a 0-62mph sprint time of 4.1 seconds in RS 3 models, while the TT RS Roadster is capable of 3.9 seconds and the TT RS Coupe can achieve 3.7 seconds.

The TT RS Audi Sport Edition has also been created as part of the update programme and is available as a Coupe or Roadster. Audi outlines how the edition can be distinguished by its black exterior highlights, which run from the radiator grille to door mirror housings, front blade, rear diffuser insert and badging and rings.
