The Audi R8 “Decennium” edition is powered by a version of the long-serving 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10, producing 611bhp and 580Nm of torque. As in the standard R8, power is sent through to a seven-speed automatic gearbox then to a Quattro all-wheel-drive system, with Audi claiming a 0–62mph sprint of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 205mph.

A few exterior revisions set the R8 Decennium apart from its standard-issue stablemates. Updates include an exclusive “Daytona Grey” paint finish, a set of 20-inch alloy wheels, carbon fibre engine intakes, carbon fibre mirror caps, a matte bronze intake manifold and a range of “Decennium” badges.

Inside, the R8 “Decennium” gets a pair of diamond-quilted sport seats, an Alcantara steering wheel, copper-coloured stitching on the door cards and centre console, carbon fibre trim, a new gear selector, a digital instrument binnacle with integrated satellite navigation and a reversing camera.

Additional standard equipment for the ten UK models includes Audi’s “Laser” LED headlights, a Bang & Olufsen sound system and adaptive dampers.

Audi’s R8 Decennium edition launch coincides with the arrival of the new Audi R8. The next-generation model will feature the same 5.2-litre V10 engine in two states of tune. Prices for the 562bhp base-model start from £128,200 for the coupe and £136,890 for the drop-top. Range-topping “Performance” models, with 611bhp, are respectively priced from £141,200 and £149,890.
