Report: V10 Audi R8 expected to set new 'Ring record
The differences between the V8-engined R8 and the V10-engined R8 extend beyond just horsepower outputs. The chassis has reportedly been modified to accommodate the extra power, expected to be fitted with larger brakes - possibly even carbon-ceramic units. Other differences will be larger air intakes and newly sculpted side blades.
Whether or not the new model will be called an RS is still undetermined. Other names that have been suggested include ‘R8-S’, similar to the sporty TT variants, or ‘R10’ to denote the new engine as well as allude to Audi’s diesel Le Mans racer.
