Besides these two, Audi is also displaying the S3 Cabriolet and the SQ5 under its high-performance range of cars at the Auto Expo. Audi has turned up the heat over at the 2016 Auto Expo with the help of two of its fastest production cars ever. The cars in question are the all-new R8 V10 Plus and the RS7 Performance. While the R8 is a low-slung, two-seater sports car, the RS7 is both fast and practical thanks to four seats and a big boot.

Although its looks are a bit controversial, there is no doubt that this all-new generation of the R8 draws attention wherever it goes. Powering it is a naturally aspirated V10 engine which develops 610bhp of power and 560Nm of torque. Audi, however, has tried to make this engine a bit eco-friendly by adding cylinder on demand and stop-start technology.

Thanks to the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and Audi’s famed quattro all-wheel drive, the new R8 V0 Plus can accelerate from 0-100kmph in 3.2 seconds. Top speed, meanwhile, is rated at 330kmph.

The more practical four-door RS7 is just as potent with 605bhp of power. However, the 4-litre, bi-turbo V8 makes a lot more torque at 700Nm. As a result, 0-100kmph comes up in just 3.7 seconds and top speed is rated at 305kmph.Besides these two, Audi is also displaying the S3 Cabriolet and the SQ5 under its high-performance range of cars at the Auto Expo.
