Will the upcoming Audi R4 look like this? Check it out.
Destined to slot between the R8 and TT ranges, the new R4 will get its own unique platform and likely appear in both coupe and roadster bodystyles. Like the Audi R8, the R4 will also feature aggressive styling and will only be able to seat two. A brand new aluminum spaceframe chassis is being developed and Audi is targeting a final kerb weight of around 2,500 pounds. Expect to see a mid-engine layout and quattro all-wheel drive as standard.
Several engine options will be on offer for the R4 as this won’t be an exclusive supercar like its bigger brother. Expect to see a range-topping model with a high-output forced-induction mill developing in excess of 300 horsepower. There should also be a diesel model as well as an all-electric version wearing an e-tron badge.
