    Audi R8 V10 updates

    Power and engine confirmed 5.2L V10 386kw/540Nm
    6speed manual and R-Tronic
    Intro-maybe even before Paris 2008
    Sales start-end of 2008
    Price wise-it seems that it will be marginally cheaper then facelifted 997 Turbo(!!!)
    Performance wise 315km/h, 0-100km/h 4.0s, 0-200km/h: 12.8s
    Styling difference:
    - Different side blades that have a larger opening
    - Oval exhaust outlets
    - The front and rear bumpers have fewer louvers in them - only 2 per side instead of the 3 louvers on the V8 bumpers
    - The rear bumper actually had a defined diffuser on it like the A4 DTM and RS6 have

    There are currently 4(at least) R8 V10 on the road in Germany near Neckarsulm. Two are Daytona Grey, one Black and one Red.

    Rear end with different difuser is clear from this pic...

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    new front...

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    side profile with new side blades and skirts

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    rear from different angle

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    This car will be a great offer

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    Interesting, thanks!

    So it will finally match the Turbo in speed. Not bad.

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    Looks like a serious competitor to the TT. I quite like the new look.

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    Cool!

    Was hoping for a bit more ext changes tho, but its still nice!

    Thankss Kreso

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    Very cool .

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    We have a winner!

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    awesome, saw one on the road yesterday, I used to have mixed feelings, but I dig it...In fact, I would get it in the color that Mike S got on his M6 cab maybe...

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    I don't understand why this car exists. When we talk about a car that has soul, more often than not, we are referring to its sound. Just think about it.
    Now what kind of soul does this car have with a tractor engine?

    Well, it sound pretty simiar to Gallardo LP560-4... Just little bit quiter and deeper...

    If that is for you tractor sound then ok I guess...

    If you don't like the sound of the stock R8, you can always modify it. Here's a before and after with EDO exhaust:

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    Thanks for the info guys

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    Thank god. Now it'll have a soundtrack to match the car's styling. The V8 grumble just never matched anything about the car.

    Hopefully it'll have the Gallardo ripping shriek now.

    Now I understand farmers better

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    This must be some kind of joke I am not getting. A Gallardo-like shriek? How is that happening with a diesel engine?

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    It's not a diesel engine.
    It's the V10 benzin engine like in the S6\S8 (only stronger ).

    I have to ask-did you read entire thread from the start

    I wrote 5.2L V10 with 386kw/540Nm... Even to non-Audi fan here on rennteam is pretty clear that it is petrol engine...

    So, it is not joke at all.

    Number are the same as on LP560-4 540Nm(398lb-ft). Just at little bit lower revs(cca 4500-5000rpm)... Intake system is also different then on LP560-4...

    Are you serious? This is a V10 engine, not a V12 diesel .

    So, are there any other parts that are different or just the electronics and intake? If not, it would probably be very easy to make the car faster, no?

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    In R8 V10 engine is tuned differently. Yes, intake system, electronics and exhaust are different but, some other parts as well. For R8 engine is tuned for little bit more low rev torque and little less peak hp power. Actually, if you aske me this is a good thing since R8 V10 will be heavier then LP560-4.
    BTW, when I was in Neckarsulm few weeks ago I saw Brilliant Red R8 V10 in person. Sound is combination of Gallardo LP560-4, current R8 and Ferrari F430-truly amazing soundtrack... I saw the way it accelerates also... This thing is at least as fast as 997 Turbo manual... New Ceramics on it were silent on hard stop as well... Also had a chance to speak with some Audi guys, R8 V10 is faster then 997 Turbo on the Ring according to them. I asked:"current 997 Turbo? NO, facelifted one!" They said to me.

    Very nice!

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    Right, sorry, I see it. It's just to show you how upset I am about the new R8 TDI hocus pocus that my brain made a short cut. Of course, you all know I was referring to the R8 V12 TDI. Forget my prior posts, please.

    I will reserve all my animosity for the future threads on V12 TDI.

    Thanks!

    Re: Audi R8 V10 updates

    guys do you think that this new car will cause the R8 4.2's second-hand prices take a big hit

    Probably not. The R8 is still rare and attracts attention, so God willing ( ), prices will remain stable. Do you own one?
