Audi R8 to go on sale in China on January 17th according to various
sources on the internet. Google "Audi R8 China" and you will find
various stories. One story on The Auto Channel.com said the R8
will start at a bit less than 2 million yuan ($274,914) and will come
with a V10. YES A V10 similar to the Lamborghini Gallardo!
How come the Chinese who only in the last 30 years were allowed to
buy cars and learn to drive are allowed to have the V10 before the
rest of the world?

For that price it is unlikely that it will be a V10. The V8 is on sale in HK for approximately that price and China has even higher taxes.

I agree with you 800. For that price, it's highly unlikely that it will be a V10.
That's about the price that most of the asian countries pays for the V8.
