The wait is over, right before the public debut next week, Audi unveiled the all new R8, or is it all new?
As you can see, the recipe remained mainly the same, car is easy recognizable, as Audi adopted a more conservative approach, they did applied the new styling cues, with the 6-point grille and more angular design lines are present in the front bumper, rear bumper and side skirts.
Good news is that Audi gave up the V8 engine, which means the R8 will be available with 2 versions, the V10 with 540HP and the V10 Plus, with 610HP, top speed of 333km.h.
Traction is provided by their Quattro system - now capable of transffering 100% of the torque to one axle and, which means all four wheels help the car sprint to 100km.h in 3.2s. The 7-speed S-Tronic transmission has been uprated as well.
The new R8 has been put under a diet, now weights 50kilos less than the previous version, thanks to the new Audi Space Frame.
