Article by Christian A., on May 29, 2014

It is not a secret that Audi is working on the next-generation R8, but today we found out more details regarding the upcoming supercar. According to Audi bosses who confirmed to Autocar, the new Audi R8 will follow the same general layout as the Huracan, just like the current version did with the Gallardo.

Still, it appears that the new Audi R8 will include wider tracks and a longer wheelbase. The rear end will be wider than the current model and will offer a larger air diffuser.

The next-generation Audi R8 will be powered by the same 5.2-liter V10 engine found on the new Lamborghini LP 610-4 Huracan, capable to generate 610 hp (448 kW) and a maximum torque of 560 Nm.

Just like the Huracan, we expect the new R8 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds, while top speed will be in excess of 320 km/h or 200 mph.

The R8 will also be offered with the smaller 4.2-liter V8 that will deliver more than the current model’s 430 hp. Bothe engines will be offered with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and in all-wheel-drive dorm only.

In addition, the new Audi R8 will use plenty of components made from aluminum in order to save weight. Next-gen Audi R8 will keep the same basic dimensions as the current model, while styling updates will include new front air intakes, a smaller grille as well as redesigned headlights.
