The Audi would say goodbye to the aspirated V10 of Lamborghini origin in lieu of a V6 biturbo For The 2020 Audi R8.
We had left a few months ago with the news that the House of Sant’Agata Bolognese was intent on the production of a 2020 Audi R8 powered by a V6 engine.

From that moment onwards there were more or less details that alluded some to the abandonment of the V8 and others to that of the V10, engines that would have been worthily replaced according to some by the 3.0 V6 TFSI (Monoturbo) of Origin Audi while according to other From the most recent 2.9 V6 TFSI (Biturbo) of Porsche origin. From Ingolstadt, rumors were made that the second series with the V8 engine would not have been possible due to the excessive costs of adapting the engine to future emission standards, especially in countries such as China where taxes are tied to displacement.
But these telenovelas seem to have an additional stake because Peter Mertens, the main figure in the research and development Audi sector, would have issued a statement for nothing unambiguous. The House of the four rings would, in fact, decided to permanently abandon the original Lamborghini-aspirated V10 to equip the 2020 Audi R8 with a V6 turbo petrol paired with one or more electric units.

The new thruster would still be under development in the hands of German engineers, but after all, according to Mertens, the current supersport of the four rings should not be updated or replaced in a round. Efforts for the foreseeable future will be focused more on the development of electrified units throughout the Audi range without forgetting the production of cars capable of transmitting true emotions
