    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    R8 Cabrio or R8 V10?
    Or maybe...R8 V10 Cabrio!?

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?




    Pss... 520hp...

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    I would have expected an auto show debut first

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    OH Man Kreso I hope you are right. The V12TDI did nothing for me...I wanted the V10 all along!!!!

    Quote:

    If at first -- or three times -- you don't succeed, then try a V10 without turbos. After a few RS8's went up like popcorn while testing with the twin-turbo V10 from the RS6, Evo magazine bolsters our report from yesterday that the new supeR8 will come with a normally aspirated V10. However, it will be a clean-sheet-of-paper engine, and not related to the V10s in the RS6 or Lamborghini Gallardo, but rather an evolution of the V8 in the RS4.

    In his interview regarding the incinerated R8s, Quattro boss Werner Frowein said that Audi was experimenting with a V10 that would get more than 500 horsepower, but the fact that the brand would commit to a brand new powerplant -- even if it is an evolution -- is somewhat surprising. Evo pegs the new engine at about 520 brake horsepower, which would put it ahead of the M-division unit from BMW and even the freer breathing versions of AMG's 6.2-liter lump. The car's arrival has been pushed back slightly to satisfy demand for the regular R8, though. In the mean time, we'll savor the possibility that the new engine will go in the S8.

    Would be nice to have an RS8 though, to compete with the AMGs.

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    It is the R8 spider. The V10 or V12 version will come later this year.

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    Name for V10 version will be R8 V10.

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    I don't wanna make you all disappointed... but isn't this just an ad for the upcoming release of the NEW AUDI A4 the headlights look like the new A4 even though they are very similar to R8... If you look at A4 on the North american site it is still shows the old model..

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    no... probably is the R8 anyway after I took a second look at the picture ... sorry for that, hehe

    Looks so much bette rwith those 2 slats on the rear in stead of 3 and 3 slats in the front in stead of 4. Single oval endtips isn't an improvement for me tho.
    520HP is a NICE bonus

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    Can you imagine getting a fully loaded V10 R8 with ceramic brakes, B&O sound system, magnetic ride....? Sounds tempting

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    R8 Spider






    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    Nice photoshop

    Re: Audi R8 V10...............?

    what do they mean with '140 million tv-viewers will witness the Start of a New Era?'

    is it going to be on national television or what? And isn't a New Era a little extreme? I'm curious though!
