Here it is folks. Audi's very own supercar has finally been spotted hurtling around the Nurburgring Nordschliefe in its complete production-ready form.

As the name implies the R8 V10 is powered by Audi's 525hp 5.2-litre V10 engine, itself a derivative of the Lamborghini Gallardo's 5-litre bent-ten. The differences aren't just limited to the engine bay though. As you can see in the pics snapped by the kind folk at Bridge To Gantry, the V10 features a revised front grille with a chrome bezel, fewer vent slats and enlarged side air intakes to help cool that big engine.

Unfortunately we can't get a glimpse of the engine in the Nurburgring R8, however the existence of the V10 powered super-coupe has been one of Audi AG's most poorly-kept secrets. Not only that, but pre-release cars fitted with the V10 were handed out to existing R8 owners back in May, with pictures of the even-more-crowded engine bay predictably finding their way onto the Internet. All I want to know is when will Audi up the insanity-level with a harder core S or (god forbid) RS version of the R8?
