Audi supercar gets evolved sheetmetal, dual-clutch transmission and a wonderful soundtrack
The next Audi R8 is in the performs, and now there’;s video of the newest from Ingolstadt testing on the Nürburgring. Probably the ideal function? The clear sounds of the R8’s mill — we’re just not certain if it is the V10 or V8.
Styling-sensible, it seems a whole lot like the existing R8 with 3 big intakes in front, although the front and rear clips seem a little a lot more squared-off to us. We can also see what looks to be a new diffuser in back.
Rumors have the automobile weighing in at about the exact same as it does now, at about 3,700 lbs. The 4.2-liter V8 might be swapped for the company’s twin turbocharged 4.-liter producing someplace in amongst 420 and 520 hp. We anticipate output on the V10 to increase as effectively. Audi’s new 7-speed dual-clutch will see duty, and hopefully a 6-velocity manual.
