Audi R8 to continue using the V10 for this generation

Audi R8 to continue using the V10 for this generation

- 2.9 – litre twin turbo V6 on hold for now

- 5.2-litre V10 will continue screaming for now

In this age of downsizing where most of the epic engines have been replaced by force-fed four-bangers, Audi aims to standout with their R8, well at least for the second generation version by holding on to their epic naturally aspirated V10 engine. The V10 is for sure, one of the best engines out there offering hair-raising performance and a goose bump inducing wail.

However, there were talks about the R8 getting a smaller engine, namely the new 2.9-litre, twin-turbo V6 jointly developed with Porsche. Now we are sure that would offer matching performance, but as the old saying goes, there is no replacement for displacement and for that we are glad Audi has decided to stick with ten cylinders.

With Audi planning to go all-electric in the future, there were talks about Audi not bringing out a third-gen R8, so the current R8’s production could end with the V10. The updated R8 was revealed recently with sharper styling, 612bhp and handling inputs taken from the R8 LMS GT3 racecar.
