Rendering of Next-Gen Audi R8
Audi will be expected to develop an aluminium and carbon fiber platform. Carbon fiber will be used for the rear firewall, the transmission tunnel and the B-posts. Weight will be 100kg less and the body will be 13 percent stiffer. The V10 will get a 550hp figure, whilst the V8 will a 450hp power rating. Alternatively, Audi may choose to replace the V10 with the brand new turbocharged 4.0 liter V8 used in the new Bentley Continental GT V8 and the Audi S8. If so, expect around 600hp. What do you think of the rendering? I think looks aggressive and awesome.
