This can't be the first imported V10 'cause i have pics of a V10 in Chennai for a while that's already sold to a customer and that's why i'm not sure if i should post pics of the car. Anyways, the Quattro is a beast and thanks for posting pics of this model. Cheers!

Here's a sneak at "my" Quattro

The dealer told me that this is the first V10 R8 imported through Audi India. So have written. You too can post pics if you want.

Ibis white looks killer. I prefer the red shade which is there on the brochure. The car looks killer, esp with those wheels.

Awesome snaps Sid! That shade I think is a country first. Think it'll be more greenish in flesh than in pics.

Does it sport all-LED headlamps? As in the copper R8 from Mumbai.

Sid, that is not a M/T but a selector gear for the A/T which looks almost identical to the M/T shifter of the R8.

For me, the white one takes the cake!

The aluminium sideblade looks neat. Besides looks, does it serve any other purpose?

Basically its a air scoop which scoops air into the engine bay from both sides. The aluminum particularly adds-less to the total weight, there are also carbon-fiber side blades on option which is even lighter.

The V10 is a good car but given the choice i would go in for the V8. The exhaust notes are crisp and much more practical for our weather conditions.

Thanks Scorcher for clearing that out.
Another doubt : Isn't there a body panel with the air-scoop already on the car? Asking this question as the R8 seen in IronMan-2 did not seem to have the Aluminium panel. So people have the aluminum sideblade installed sort of as an additional performance accessory .. is it?
