No one is bitter sweet without saying anything you already know that the new Audi R8 is better than the last in everything and you'd love to have it, but you can not imagine what is the big leap which he has resulted in all sections. It was a car of spectacular beauty, and that has not changed. By the above behavior was closer to a Gran Turismo that of a supercar. Now Gran Turismo nothing and yet is more comfortable. After driving the impression that I have left Audi has changed the orientation of this car, It happens to be very fast and spectacular spectacularly effective, as if to demonstrate to Maranello that have nothing to envy. Audi has a long way with R8 to reach the emotion that is capable of transmitting any Ferrari, there is not to start it to feel it, but in terms of effectiveness and dynamism have already achieved them and soon we will know whether they have passed them or not.
Development of second generation of the Audi R8 zero game is being completely new despite sharing some dimensions, like the battle. A generation ago there was a lot of Lamborghini Gallardo Street and that forced Audi to be "tied" in some respects, the competition for example. Before it was a road car with a later version of races that could evolve to a point. Now the racing and street were born to the couple, along with the Lamborghini Huracán, and both R8 as the R8 Plus and R8 LMS, and they have jointly developed -comparten 50 percent of the pieces-. There are new factory in Böllinger Höfe, where 400 employees manufacture the R8 Hand in their only three versions.
R8 is aluminum, with a frame weighs 200 kg less as above and is a 40 percent stiffer. The key has been used more resistant aluminum greater amount of carbon fiber in key sites. uses the same V10 two powers adapted to a sportier use and, at the same time ecological. It is double injection system, variable valve timing intake and exhaust, selective disconnection of cylinders, Start / Stop, driving candle ... They manage to save 10 percent on consumption while increasing performance and, of course, it meets the required EuroVI.
540 or 610 hp, all V10
It is available in two versions, normal, if that can be called so, with 540 hp, and the bonus 610 CV. In either pushed as if no tomorrow; a Porsche 991 Turbo S patadón gives you back the throttle a R8 V10 Plus 200 kg placed on your back while passing from 1,000 to almost 9,000 laps. At the end, precious feelings even or sound of an atmospheric V10 are exceeded only by a V12. I think a success that has opted to keep the V10. Someone to come and tell you that better is a 6-cylinder 8 to show you what data is fine, because even what you can prove, but the pleasure of a big engine in areas such as mechanical touch, sound or the overall response are well above, either idling or in the red zone. It's not romantic, it is a reality. You can change the sound goes from being beautiful to deliciously tacky to blow button. You'll like it, but not so much your neighborhood.
All-wheel drive has a new multidisc front differential water cooled. The cast can be up to 100 by 100 on each axis. The address is active and the variable magnetic suspension. Everything has been evolved and adapted to the chosen configuration with the positions Comfort, Dynamic or individual, and by Performance button with features Dry, Wet or Snow (Dry, wet or snow). If you're going to R8 adapting to each situation. The brakes are ventilated steel, perforated and lobed for better cooling. Optional -standard in there Plus- discs carbocerámicos.
Driving this car at normal or fast pace is easier than before. It is clearly more docile in the street as a matter of comfort, even if you opt for the Plus. The entire cabin is driver-oriented, Main protagonist. I find it amazing visual line that has managed, with all major controls on the steering wheel and easy to read box, configurable and full of information. If you want to go fast the thing is already complicated by a pure question of speed, because he runs a lot. It remains docile but everything happens so fast that you have to be very careful. Dry in position "manettino" (Forgive me Mr. Enzo) motor goes wild, and differentials by demanding and hard suspension, ie, car racing elegant bearing.
