Audi R8’s new-gen to gain 4.2 liter V8 engine

The future generation of the Audi R8 will be hitting the market with a 4.2 liter V8 engine under its hood, as a recent report is showing.

While the new generation of the Audi RS4 will be dropping the large V8 engine in favor for a six-cylinder unit, which will bring it closer to one of its main competitors, the BMW M3, the company’s supercar, the R8, will not be coming with an engine smaller than a V8. In fact, rumors are saying that the new generation of the Audi R8 will be hitting the market with a 4.2 liter V8 engine. We’re not sure for the moment what it will develop but we do know that it will be naturally aspirated.

The current Audi R8 has been in production since 2007 and at the end of 2013 it has been produced in 31,500 units. The supercar is assembled in Neckarsulm, Germany, and it’s offered in two body styles, two-door coupe and two-door roadster, with a longitudinal mid engine and a Quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The model has a choice of two engines, a 4.2 liter V8 and a 5.2 liter V10, along with four transmission options.
