Check out this R8 posted by forum user Nightranger in another thread. It was his contention that this car is a V10 version of Audi's supercar in testing at the Nurburghring. Though there's nothing conclusive that proves that claim, this is certainly an odd duck.
The HH on the license plates and preproduction status of the R8 suggest this is a car owned by quattro GmbH. Note also some details pointed out by Nightranger. The side blade intake is rounded out for greater airflow to the motor. Also, a new sideskirt design on this particular R8 is similar in design to the skirts on the S5.
So what do you think? V10?

I would love to see it, and it makes sense based on the engines in the Audi Stable. When would be the question. Would it undermine all the people that have deposits and/or paid for V8 versions?
But the real questions is by how much will it blow everything else out of the water.

If they really wanted something special - they could put that rumored twin turbo V10 from the RS6 in it like the concept car had. 600-650hp would stop ALL comparisons regardless of price
