Audi R8: 520 bhp V10 confirmed for 2008

Audi R8
Again, for all of you who need another confirmation: Audi will bring a 520 bhp V10 in 2008! If you read us continously, you already knew that long time ago.

Confirming our earlier news story, the V10 engine will be completely new and not related to the V10s in either the RS6 or the Lamborghini Gallardo. Instead it is essentially a development of the high-revving V8 from the RS4 and R8.

Engineers tell us that this new engine will shade BMW’s 500bhp M Power V10 – as found in the M5 and M6 – in terms of outright power and revs. Considering BMW’s figures, that means the new 5.2-litre engine should be good for around 520bhp and rev beyond 8250rpm.
