    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2016 model) - Review (updated Feb 13th 2017)

    I was invited at the launch of the pss4. 

    They are better than the Pirelli as they were tested on all conditions against them...

    So what about this whole discussion about the VAG group not wanting the R8 to interfere with their other product strategies? To me, it seems like with this supercar, they are creating the exact same problem, albeit in a different target group maybe. yes

    OK - its a concept, it must provoke. But - this front is just mind-blowing spectacular. I hope this is the new Audi front!

    In comparison it makes the (beautiful) R8 front looking so old 


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2016 model) - Review (updated Feb 13th 2017)

    Yes, the new front looks amazing but I still have my doubts that the final product will look that spectacular.

    sure the real deal will be less dramatic. However, it shows that even an amazing looking front has the potential to look better.

    Facelift with V10 n/a, next gen some sort of V8 Biturbo with "mild" hybrid. V10 is still in the possibility but unlikely.

    Again: This can change in a week again, so many rumors right now.

    The problem with Lamborghini in Germany is: No real good lease deals and/or any deals.

    Not sure if I am going for the FL though, 10 hp more don't cut it.

    I may switch to the current Spyder Plus though, if I can find a good deal. 

    We'll see...

    620 hp engine for R8 V10 Plus facelift confirmed, new cylinder heads (to cope with the power loss due to technical changes, WLTP and all) and particulate filter.

    Also, as it seems...the last R8... laugh

    Release? Well...it seems early 2019(!) but official presentation could be earlier.

    Hopefully the technical changes like WLTP and filters etc. will not disturb the sound. That could be a reason not to buy the “Final Edition”.

    Sound will be affected but I was told that they kind of changed the sound frequency to make the sound (almost) as good as on the current car but in reality, it is quieter. Not sure how this is supposed to work though. Mercedes apparently used a similar strategy for the new facelifted C63 S but I already heard the car and you can clearly hear the sound difference to the "old" car and yes, it is quieter, especially in the higher rev range.

    You should really try the Lamborghini Huracan Performante...wow...what a sound. This car has basically an open exhaust (no kidding, no clue how they got this through German certification), it is loud as hell, best sounding car ever.  Unfortunately the Performante gets a particulate filter as well soon...

    Lease offer was insane, 3700 EUR without down payment for the Performante Spyder, I cannot really afford this. I would buy this car in an instant if I had the money, this is a real keeper.

    Certification and homologation is way more easier when you are talking about limited number of cars on the market compared to mass production car as a C class AMG or not.

    "Audi R8 GT3 LMS Evo racer previews 2019 supercar" (Car magazine)

    Camouflaged R8 Spyder spotted already
    ► New race car revealed at the Paris motor show
    ► Is this a preview to the new R8?

    (2 October 2018)

    Audi has revealed its new R8 GT3 Evo LMS racer, and it looks to be a preview of the company’s forthcoming flagship supercar. Ingolstadt revealed the last R8 in racing-trim before the production version, and it looks to be doing the same this time around, too.

    So, what’s new?

    Ignore the huge wheel arches and aerofoils for a second, and the first thing you notice on the R8 LMS racer is a slightly revised grille. It keeps the same octagonal, Singleframe shape as the current Audi line-up, but also features a trio of quattro-style slots at the top – much like the new Audi A1.

    We know Ingolstadt is keen to sprinkle some motorsport pedigree into its upcoming cars, and that retro grille will do just that.

    At the same time, new, rhombus shaped front air-intakes seem to echo that of a R8 development mule we’ve already seen, and the ‘straight-across’ mesh at the rear of the racecar also matches up with our existing spy shots. If the new R8 looks anything like this beast, we’ll be happy.

    Back to the racer

    Audi says the new racer will features improved drivability for amateur, gentleman drivers and will use a new front splitter to increase downforce and rear-brake cooling. At the same time, a revised gearbox and clutch should stretch out the time between rebuilds by 50%.

    As for the engine? Audi says the new car keeps the same 5.2-litre V10 as before, which will require servicing every 10,000km and a rebuild in double that distance. Deliveries of the car will start in November at of 398,000 Euros, with an Evo kit available for existing cars landing at almost affordable 28,000 Euros.

    New Audi R8 (2019): everything else we know

    Our spy photographers have spotted an updated Audi R8 supercar again, and this time in Spyder form. Like the coupe version we saw before, the new car comes with a new face and some rather telling new exhausts, too.

    From the front, the R8 Spyder we’ve seen has the same tweaked grille shape we saw on the coupe, and shares similar styling to the new Q8 SUV. What’s more, there’s more venting on show – with clean areas of mesh rather than the finned ones of the current R8.

    At the back, this Spyder version of the mystery-R8 features the same drain-pipe exhausts and new cooling seen on the coupe. The same spoiler as seen on the Plus remains here, but the rear venting area has been shaped to span right across the rear of the car, even if some of it is blanked out for the number plate. There are even slim vents in the side sills, features unseen on previous versions of the car.

    Most crucially, though, are the exhausts; these are new, fat oval ones usually seen on Audi’s RS cars like the RS5 coupe and TT RS, for example – and on the camo’d coupe we’ve already seen. These, along with Audi’s ceramic brakes suggest that this version goes beyond the R8 V10 Plus – almost as if this is the flagship R8 GT, like the previous generation.

    If that’s true, power is expected to come from the 5.2-litre V10 but with a little more power squeezed out of it.

    We’ll surely find out more from Audi in the coming months...
