The Audi R8 is revealed before the auto show in Los Angeles
Just recently, Audi presented the latest R8 supercar. The official debut is planned on this November at the annual auto show in Los Angeles. The car is expected to come on sale the upcoming year.
The R8 is equipped with the 5.0-liter V10 engine, which is able to produce the output of 570 horsepower instead of previous 525 and 550 horsepower.
Owing to the updated powertrain, the car can accelerate from 0 mph to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds; the maximum speed is 199 mph. The novelty will be equipped with the seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch gearbox. The drive is all-wheel.
Besides the more powerful engine, the novelty gets the back diffuser, front spoiler, side blades, mirror housing and the engine bay cover. Due to using lightweight materials such as carbon fiber in some elements, the car’s weight is reduced to provide more downforce.
The carmaker plans to offer only 60 versions of the new Audi R8 in the U.S. auto market. First orders will be done soon after the introduction in Los Angeles in November. Moreover, the Audi R8 is the first such supercar issuing the output of 570 horsepower, which is available on the U.S. market.
