Opinions are divided concerning the new R8’s looks as while some say the angular evolutionary design is appealing, others believe the first generation has a better design. If you still haven’t made up your mind about the new one, this Mythos Black example could help you decide which side you should take. As you can see, this is an all-black R8 V10 as the interior cabin carries over the body’s theme and in this configuration the side blades are not so visible while the rear wing at the back denotes we are dealing with the range-topping Plus model.

Lighter and more powerful than the base R8 V10, the Plus version adds clear coated carbon fiber front splitter, side blades and rear diffuser which are optional on the standard version and makes the switch from steel brake discs to a carbon fiber ceramic set.

With a €187,400 starting price in Germany, the Plus version is for now the most expensive R8 money can buy, but pretty soon Audi will start taking orders for the fully electric e-tron version which will cost a lot more. The R8 lineup is going to be expanded sometime next year with the arrival of the Spyder which will be offered in both standard and Plus flavors.
