It has become a practice in the car industry that by the time one specific vehicle has entered the market ground another generation is already being prepared. So it is no wonder that Audi R8, that got available in 2008 (Europe ground bit earlier in 2006), and had his first remodeling in 2014 (2013 for Europe), is now getting another refreshing touch as 2016 Audi R8 model. The plan for the new 2016 Audi R8 is to remain the loyal to its predecessors but also to obtain a more modern new look with that include a lot of design elements inspired by the R8 E-tron concept car with almost inevitable options of containing the single-frame grille and the matrix-beam LED lights. Be sure that those in charge for it are doing their best to make it more lighter and powerful but with keeping the same Lamborghini Gallardo platform. So they made an effort to combine elements made in carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), such as the bonnet and roof, with the new Multimaterial Spaceframe body used in the R8 e-tron and hopefully this combo will make it weight less as intended.
2016 Audi R8: Review, Engine
Not escaping from what is proved to be good, the newest 2016 Audi R8 will be offered in standard V-8 and V-10 versions, both receiving power and fuel economy boosts. It seems pretty possible that the V-8 version will be able to deliver 450 of horsepower and the V-10 version may even pull out up to 570 horsepower, which is a significant gain of 20 and 50 horsepower. In order to boost fuel consumption up to 10%, they both will receive cylinder deactivation and stop-start technology. Since Europe always gets these guys on the market little earlier, 2016 Audi R8 will be available there in 2015, and in 2016 everywhere. The roadster version will probably be a little late in the same model year. We already said that this lightweight guy gets inspiration from R8 E-tron concept. But what is it that this version will ultimately contain? Well, kind of new single-frame grille plus new headlights with matrix-beam LED lights. They also created larger air intakes and heat extractors to ensure a better cooling to make more powerful engines. Will 2016 Audi R8 indulge customer’s needs and create revised taillights, tailpipes and diffuser, remains to see.
2016 Audi R8: Exterior
It is expected that in the same time Audi launches its 2016 R8, the Maserati will do the same with newest Gran-Turismo. This new model, 2016 Audi R8, packed in more aggressive suit, stuffed with all-new headlights and taillights, a redesigned front grille, a larger lip spoiler, and larger air intakes and enriched with newest V-8 engine developed by Ferrari at Maranello, really does have things to offer. Even with harsh competition, we still cheer for 2016 Audi R8.
