There is big good news for the super car lovers from Audi. Not long before in March 2011, did Audi launch the most anticipated Audi R8 Spyder roadster in India. Now the German luxury car manufacturer is already gearing up for the next generation Audi R8 super car and the next generation Audi R8 Spyder roadster versions in 2014 and 2015 respectively. The German engineering has taken a huge leap with some innovative technologies to enhance the performance and fuel efficiency of the two Audi cars to the next level. The Audi cars are lighter by 60 kg and odd to cut down the weight to 1500 kg boosting the performance to an all-time high. The Audi R8 super car powered by the 4.2 L V8 engine is now made to deliver 450 Bhp peak power while the power-packed driving experience of the Audi R8 Spyder roadster version with 5.2 L V10 engine is improved to churn out 550 Bhp maximum power. Both of them will be mated with the seven speed dual clutch gearboxes.
The luxury cars are ideally the chauffeur driven cars meant for the elite people more than for a common man. But of late, it has been observed that the luxury car brands are into sport car manufacturing with the launch of Audi R8 with V10 engine in February followed by Lamborgini’s LP 700-4 launch in March, this year. Now, the sports car lovers are eagerly waiting for the launch of Jaguar XKR-S, which was globally unveiled in Geneva Motor show in March, this year.
