The Lamborghini Huracan and the Audi R8 might receive, for the very first time, a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine option under their hoods.
The brand new Audi R8 and the Lamborghini Huracan are believed to try and “revolutionize” the rear mid-engine segment for supercars as the two models should get a 2.5 liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine option. The announcement hasn’t been made official but it has been reported by in this case, it is rated at 600 HP (441 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque, thanks to the electric turbo.
This is really evolution in the automotive industry and even if we prefer a large naturally aspirated V12 engine behind the rear seats, we have to admit that technology has made vehicles capable of impressive performance. Keep in mind that the current Lamborghini Huracan and the Audi R8 are both taking their power from the same 5.2 liter V12 engine, which has been carried over from their predecessors. The Italian exotic ride is coming with 602 HP (449 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque while its German cousin is good for 540 HP (397 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque in standard and 602 HP (449 kW) and 560 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque in the R8 V10 Plus.
