Default Audi R8 info

via leftlanenews

The Audi R8 only got the green light a few months ago (see report), but things are already moving along quickly. AutoExpress has a new report on the car, which it says will be show this fall at the Paris Motor Show, and will go on sale in early 2007. Not only will the car go on sale sooner than you might expect, it will also cost less. The U.K.-based magazine says the R8 will cost 70,000 in Britain, which compares to about $90,000 in the U.S. The interior is said to take inspiration from the TT Shooting Brake Concept. A 450 hp 5.0-litre V10 powerplant coupled with a DSG transmission will push the car to 60 mph in four seconds, with a top speed of 200 mph. Lastly, the car is rumored to get the Roadjet Concept's Magnetic Ride suspension, which rapidly adjusts thanks to a magnetic fluid that changes thickness when a current is applied. Recently, we brought you some R8 spy photos.
