2015 Audi R8 – Nurburgring Testing [video]

Posted on 28 March, 2014

WCF has published a video with a 2015 Audi R8 wearing some camouflage doing some high-speed tests at the Nurburgring.

Some of the highlights include an aggressive front fascia, a big grille and larger air intakes. There are also new side blades and an active rear spoiler. At the rear, there are slender taillights and an aggressive rear diffuser housing a four-tailpipe exhaust system.

The engine range will include a 4.2 liter V8 with 430HP (316 kW) and 430Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. There will be also an updated 5.2 liter V10 with over 525HP (386 kW) and 530Nm (391 lb-ft). Both will be connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and a quattro all-wheel drive system.

Other innovation will be significant weight reducing between 50 to 60 kg (110 to 130 lbs).
