Audi RS8

RS6080015 Audi have apparently signed off on allowing the immense RS6 V10 Turbo lump to go into the R8.

The RS8 will be the most powerful version of the R8, and will undoubtedly be the ‘HALO’ car for the brand.

If the R8 get’s the top of the range Audi lump, it would be a true challenger to the Ferrari and Lambo’s of this world.

Let’s hope the news is true, also let’s hope we see the V12 Diesel version as well.

Audi R8 V12TDi

The Geneva motor show started today, and Audi seemed to want to show the R8 TDi off. However rather than doing what Ford or GM would do, and ship the car they showed off in Detroit to the show, it built another one. This time in Red and black, and it does look good!

I challenge anyone to say that this car is not production ready, if they can just knock together 2 ‘prototypes’ in under a month, then there must be some drive inside Audi to do the Diesel SuperCar.

This car however might not see the light of day, now that Porche have been given the all clear by the VW board to take a 51% stake in the company, will they want a challenger to the Porche 911, that could be considered ‘Green’, well Green for a SuperCar at least.

Audi R8 V12

r8-v12-tdi Yup, Audi have done it. A V12 Audi R8. Well a diesel V12 Audi R8 anyhow, but that’s good.

Apparently it will be officially unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show next week, but a video of the car (promo video) has been leaked onto the net

The details are a little sketchy, but it’s apparently 500Bhp and 737Ft-Lb, with a 4.3 0-62 time and top speed just shy of 190Mph. And even get’s 10ltrs to a 100Km on the fuel side of things, which isn’t shabby for a supercar.
