Audi is considering a diesel hybrid supercar which would be slotted above the R8.

Set to rival the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari's Enzo replacement, this Audi hypercar could wear the R10 moniker and feature some tech developed for the 2012 R18 e-tron that managed to win this year's Le Mans.

Audi technical development chief Wolfgang Durheimer gave an interview to Auto Express saying "there is definitely room for a super sports car above the R8" and if they would make it a diesel hybrid "it could be a hot-seller".

It could provide a combined power output of about 700 hp (522 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque that would enable it to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in three seconds and hit a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h).
