THE AUDI R8 V10 has been declared the 2010 World Performance Car Of The Year, its win announced at this week's New York Auto Show. Audi's supercar beat out the Ferrari California and Porsche 911 GT3, topping a list of 16 eligible cars in total.

"We’re honored that the Audi R8 V10 was chosen by this distinguished group of jurors as the 2010 World Performance Car," Johan De Nysschen, Executive Vice President of Audi of America said.

"This is the fifth year of the World Performance Car award and the R8 has won it twice. The truly global nature of the World Car jury is evidence that Audi is hitting the performance car sweet spot of car lovers around the world."

According to the 59-member judging panel, the R8 V10 offers a level of driving pleasure close to the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, with which it shares its 5.2 litre 391kW V10 engine.

"In the opinion of many a judge on the World Car Awards jury, Audi has at long last satisfied our hunger for a street car that lives up to the excitement of the original Le Mans series-dominating R8 LMP1 car that changed the endurance racing game starting in the 2000 season.

This civilian trim uber R8 shares the 5.2-liter engine and chassis of the more powerful and lighter Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, so that we all really liked driving it this year should come as little surprise.

Previous World Performance Car winners were the Nissan GT-R in 2009, the Audi R8 in 2008, the Audi RS4 in 2007 and the Porsche Cayman S in 2006.
