Audi 5.2 V10 Coupe


 Audi R8 GT V10 Spyder


 GT Coupe

 This model was unveiled on December 9, 2008, using a 5,200-liter FSI engine, which is the same engine used for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 (Audi: S6C6) in English: Audi  C6 S6) Audi D3 S8.  This engine is able to output 525 hp, capable of accelerating the car from 0-100 km / h in 3.9 seconds.  This is in addition to some minor modifications, such as LED headlights, and some additions to the cabin, such as the powerful 456-watt sound system of Bang Alwosen type.


 There has been a lot of news about this model since 2006, but nothing was confirmed of it until August 2008 when spy photos were taken of the car while it was undergoing initial tests. In May 2010, this model appeared in the Iron Man 2 movie, and the car appeared in the film with a roof covering and also  The sideblade of the Audi sideblade has disappeared.  In 2009, the car also appeared at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

 Comparing the coupe model, we find a difference in the place of supplying the fuel, as well, adding the steel safety rails at the overturning and of course the new engine (5.2 FSI V10 engine).

 Audi R8 GT

 GT 'symbol means luxury high-performance car (Grand Tourer)

 This version was launched in May 2010 and it is priced at 142,585 pounds and is the fastest car produced by Audi in its history.

 The car's weight has been reduced by 100 kilograms, and the capacity of the FSI V10 5.2 engine has been developed to become more powerful to produce 560 horsepower. Because of these adjustments, the top speed of the car has become 320 km / h and proceeds from stability to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds.

 This is in addition to a number of cosmetic modifications to give the car a look that fits its power, such as the red brakes, a new rear spoiler, front wings, and added the GT brand instead of the V10.

 The production of this car is limited in number, but this is to maintain the luster of the car and to enhance its taste value, of which only 333 cars were produced, of which 33 are reserved for customers from the United Kingdom and 90 for the United States of America.

 Audi future research (R8 e-tron)

 The i-Tron Compact appeared in 2009 during the Frankfurt International Fair. Come on, it is similar to the coupe, but slightly smaller. It is equipped with four separate electric motors 2 for the front wheel hub and 2 for the rear wheel hub.  .

 The car has almost the same shape as a coupe car and the Audi company claims that the car is able to move from steadiness to a speed of 100 km / h within 4.8 seconds, that is, it is two seconds slower than the R8 v8 4.2.  Audi expects that the top speed of this car will not exceed 200 km / h to maintain energy inside the battery. Audi said that this car will enter commercial production lines in 2012.

 Audi R8 NF

 At the Audi Research Center in Nicholas, reporters learned about a new version of the R8 that would be lighter in weight, codenamed NF.  The car is expected to add carbon and fiber, for example, to replace the hood with a cap made of carbon, the roof, and a counter from other parts.


 Since Volkswagen owns both Audi and Lamborghini, it is natural for Audi R8 to share some advantages with the old Italian company Lamborghini, for example, the engine, parts of the internal structure, door handles and gearbox even it shares in the quality of the shock absorber in addition to the convergence in price.

 Audi added several modern safety and performance systems that express the company's development such as the E (Electronic Stability Program) "ABS" (Anti-lock Braking System and electronic braking force distributor) and anti-slip (Anti-Slip Regulation) and torque output manager (  As for the air bags, they are available in front (to protect the driver) and on the sides.  The car is also equipped with lamps that illuminate a daylight type diode, incorporating an X lamp
