The Audi R8 is a mid-engine sports car that has announced its release in 2005. The R8 was officially launched at the Paris Auto Show on September 30, 2006. This car was based on the Audi Le Mans Quattro concept car. The Audi R8 will be available for public purchase sometime in mid 2007. With the 4.2 L V8 screaming under the hood everyone will enjoy a spin in the car. The 3439 lbs of this machine makes for an immaculately smooth ride when cruising down the highway. Also, to look forward to, is the future upgrade to a 520 hp, 5.2 L V10 upgrade, similar, but larger than the Lamborghini Gallardo engine, currently available in the Audi S8.
With a V8 engine this low laying vehicle hugs the road at tremendous speeds. This car is equipped to accelerate quickly and change gears effortlessly. The design on this model one of a kind for a street vehicle. This beefy machine appears to be showing some muscle as it sits at an idle in the street. It has the typical layout of a race car. The motor can be found behind the drivers seat. The stalky set up is for optimal performance at high speeds thus allowing the vehicle and driver to become one with the road. One way of noticing the intense dynamics of this design is by the two large format diffuser openings coming out of the rear bumper. The tail pipes are large and have an oval shape to them. And they rest just above the diffuser openings.
The interior is definitely more for the driver than its one possible passenger. This is true of the cockpit area meshing in with the driver. The switches and console are leaning slightly towards the driver of the vehicle. Audi, known for producing some of the best, futuristic looking interiors ever seen, may surprise the Audi fan with the rather basic, or “normal” interior design command center for the R8. Audi has also dabbed a few carbon fiber components in the R8, which doesn’t actually enhance the comfort level any, but does come in quite handy when remembering the R8’s overall potential for performance.
The only downside that comes to mind is the amount of production taking place at the Audi plant, or rather, lack of production. Only 15 cars are manufactured daily, which makes for a overwhelming yearn for a higher productivity count after considering all the countries worldwide that sell Audi products. Nonetheless, Audi guarantees it is definitely worth the wait.
