Audi is preparing the next generation R8. The model will be equipped with all the top technologies and will debut in the second half of 2014.

Audi will unveil the next generation of the R8 super car in the third quarter of 2014. The supercar will compete Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche and the Germans want to ensure the success by using the most advanced technology available in aerodynamics, electronics and manufacturing.

The model will be inspired by the concept of E-Tron and the body will be made of aluminum. The R8 will benefit from a more spacious cabin, a central engine and standard four-wheel drive.

The supercar will be lighter, as the basic version will have a mass close to 1500 kg, which makes for a difference of only 60 kg, but the advantage is that the engines are more efficient and the active and passive safety systems are more numerous.

R8’s engines will keep the aspirated configuration, the displacement and the number of cylinders, but will meet the Euro 6 requirements and will more powerful and more effective.

The website Autocar claims that the V8 version will develop around 450 hp, while the V10 model will develop around 550 hp. The R8 will be equipped with a Start / Stop automatic system, brake energy regeneration and a “sailing” function, which idles the engine on downhill stretches.
