Thanks to RM Design, we have one more vision for the next generation Audi R8
Thanks to RM Design, we have one more vision for the next generation Audi R8.
The work is probably based on the 2015 Audi TT and features its aggressive front fascia with a hexagonal grille, surrounded by matrix-beam LED lights. According to previous reports, we can also expect shorter side blades and a Le Mans inspired "double diffuser".
As reported before, engine options are likely to carryover with some minor modifications to increase their output. Choices could include a 4.2-liter V8 with roughly 450 bhp (335 kW) and a 5.2-liter V10 with about 570 bhp (425 kW).
A TDI version could be introduced in 2017. There is still nothing official about this car, but the model will reportedly use either a 4.0-liter V8 TDI engine or a 5.0-liter V10 TDI engine. There's no word on specifications, but the R8 TDI Le Mans concept had a V12 TDI engine with 500 PS (367 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque.
An R8 V10 Plus is also expected with 600 bhp (447 kW) and 413 lb-ft (559 Nm) of torque.
