Audi is celebrating 10 years of its R8 supercar with the R8 V10 Decennium (the latin word for decade).

Just 222 examples of the Decennium will be built featuring unique trims to mark it from ‘regular’ R8 models.

Only available as a coupe, the R8 Decennium is available in Audi’s matt effect 'Daytona Grey', with the 20-inch alloy wheels and intake manifold finished in matt bronze. 

The front spoiler, side sellers and diffuser are painted in gloss black, while the side blades and exterior mirror housings are finished in gloss carbon fibre. 

The cabin of the R8 Decennium is finished purely in black, with Decennium badging featuring on the centre console, doors, inlays in the door sills and from the puddle lamps on the doors. 

The seats feature rhombus diamond stitching, while the contrast stitching on the seats, doors and steering wheel is coloured in copper.

Despite being a special edition, the R8 Decennium features the same 456kW/580Nm 5.2-litre V10 engine and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission as the standard R8, which has been upgraded from 449kW/560Nm for 2019. 

It's claimed to accelerate from 0-100km/h in 3.1 seconds, and is capable of a 331km/h top speed. It uses 11.4L/100km of fuel on a combined cycle. 

Australian availability is yet to be confirmed, though European pricing starts at  €222,000 or AUD$356,000. 

Considering the standard R8 V10 is priced from $366,340 in Australia, the Decennium would likely be priced closer to $400,000 if it’s launched locally. 

Is the Decennium enough of a celebration of 10 years of the R8 V10? Let us know in the comments below.
