    Audi supercar...

    Audi is apparently serious about making a supercar under the audi badge. As you can tell by the spy pics... it's rolling on lambo wheels so you know the tires are wide. I dunno, I like it-it may look better than the gallardo. If you look at the first pic you can see the HUUUUGGGEEE brake caliper. I want one!












    Re: Audi supercar...

    just a quick look at what the R8 CONCEPT looks like.. The real car is obviously up top.


    Re: Audi supercar...

    Thanks for the pics. Looks like this R8 will be a hand me down from Lambo all the way

    Re: Audi supercar...

    There was a concept car that looked exactly like this a few years ago, it was meant to have a twin turbo version of the v10 Lamborghini Gallardo engine. I would be very surprised if they make this for production.

    I'm sure it won't be the V10 twin turbo but AUDI announced that they'll make it.

    It is now official: the new Audi sports car will be called the Audi R8. Presented as the "Le Mans quattro" concept study two years ago at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show, Audi has now taken the decision to build its new sports car. Everything is already being prepared for the series production of the R8 at Audi's plant in Neckarsulm, due to commence in the fourth quarter of 2006. The market launch is scheduled for the second quarter of 2007.

    28 million euros are being invested in the R8 production line. The Audi subsidiary quattro GmbH will be responsible for production. Development and test construction at quattro GmbH and technical development at AUDI AG are currently in full swing. 250 employees will work on the production of the R8.

    "Through the R8 we are looking to build on our successes in motorsport and carry them over to series production. This model represents Audi's very own interpretation of sportiness," says Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of AUDI AG, about the new member of the Audi model range.

    Audi is relying on intelligent lightweight design for its R8, a core area of expertise in Neckarsulm. The Audi A2, A6 and A8 were all developed at the Aluminium Centre there using lightweight design technology.

    Indeed, it even has the old Gallardo wheels on in the pictures from wintertesting in Sweden.


    Thanks for posting the pics Otwo9

    Re: Audi supercar...

    Im not sure about this one, yes it looks good, but it looks JUST like a Gallardo! cmon, dont rob lambo!

    Re: Audi supercar...

    Price at the 911 level, not in the same price range as Lambo.

    Re: Audi supercar...

    thanks, great pics. actually the first i saw after the car at the IAA. I think the car has great potential, if they give it 450-80 hp and a decent price, it could be an alternative to the 997tt.

    All it's missing is the bull on the hood!

    Re: Audi supercar...

    The price will be interesting, if they can offer it at a 911 price tag it will sell well. I like the styling

    Re: Audi supercar...

    But i heard that they'll make a v6 280 hp version in like 2010. Iono bout you but if I buy a car in that price range i dont want a year later to see other cars liek mine for way cheaper .
