Audi R8 To Get Lighter And Faster

An all new Audi R8 is set to make its debut in with a 200lbs weight reduction. Audi will rely on a smart mix of aluminum and carbon fiber to build the structure of the car. According to R&D boss Michael Dick, the German manufacturer wants to achieve the maximum weight reduction and rigidity. Although the new structure will be more expensive, the new materials will help Audi obtain an important weight reduction that will increase performance and reduce fuel consumption. The weight reduction of the engine is still discussed but the new car could receive a V8 engine delivering over 500 hp, featuring two turbochargers and a cylinder deactivation function.
The answer could be the all-new 4.0 TFSI engine seen on the new S6, S7 and S8 super sedan. This engine delivers between 309 kW (420 hp) and 382 kW (520 hp) and could have up to 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft) of torque in standard tune.
