2015 Audi R8 GT – 2015 Audi R8 is the replacement of the new high-performance sports car design engine two-seater, which was released in Europe in 2007 and came to the United States the following year. Georg Kacher reports for the British car magazine and Greg Kable AutoWeek and Autocar in the UK say that the new R8 will start selling U.S. in the first quarter of 2015. Although the time of designation suggesting a model in 2016, we believe that the car coming here as a “delay” ’15. Typical European brands will start the Audi 4.2 V8 and 5.2 V10 interface. Fabric Fellow Spyder convertible about 12 months later. Audi quattro four-wheel drive is standard for all the signing. Also new in a limited edition 5.2 GT coupe in the works is said, but is not expected before 2016. Meanwhile, our British friends say the current R8 is getting a facelift in the light of the model year 2013.

Audi is one of the top brands in the Volkswagen Group’s large barn. The others are British Bentley, Bugatti is still incorporated in France, the Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini Porsche power and Germany into the family. The current R8 shares a basic platform with V10 Lamborghini Gallardo, but it has a different style, slightly different dimensions and specific features and prices. A revised Gallardo name LB274 code is produced for incorporation in the 2013 calendar and used the basic model of the R8 next underskin internally designated AU274. The same reasoning can also enjoy a Porsche rumor Touring upcoming bridge a big price difference between the high-end sports cars and 911 new RS 918 plug-in high-performance hybrid Spyder, which was announced at $ 845,000 minimum and starts producing 18 September 2013.

But back to the R8. Although the new design probably means higher prices, should this Audi again one of the best exotic cars, a low to medium price of around $ 100,000. Participate in the performance and attractiveness of front-engine Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the Jaguar XKR / XKR-S that are less expensive, rear-engine Porsche 911 Turbo and GT2/GT3 models that cost about the same, are the front-engine Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and SL55/SL65 that cost more, and of course the Gallardo. Other options include front-engined Aston Martin Vantage coupe and convertible, and to a lesser extent, the large, elegant Bentley Continental GT / GTC. The obvious R8 takes in a dilute class, so it is not common, even after more than four years on the market. The message should be no different in this regard. As usual, the R8 has proven to be one of the most popular sports car, with calendar 2011 sales of 1,145 units, an increase of not less than 43 percent over the previous year of 799 Americans.

2015 Audi R8 Chassis Design and Engineering

Show British reports, the 2015 Audi R8 is about the same size as today the global model, although the wheelbase increased by an inch or two to make more space in the cockpit. The style shown is fresh but familiar with a number of elements from different concepts such as R8 e-tron electric battery in the last two years. This is the case as the starting e-tron on sale in Europe later in 2013. America is likely to see in the ’14 calendar. It was reported that a kind of preview of the style and architecture of the next R8.

Below the cool stitching, replace 2015 Audi R8 skeletal aluminum frame “ASF” called today with a newly designed modular structure MSS uses the aluminum and carbon fiber. Carbon elements to the transmission tunnel, the floor of the cabin and the rear compartment, in addition to the amounts of the B section, which contain apparently to gain enough strength to provide protection against tipping. British sources say that Audi has already naked body weight 62 pounds of coal used to trim 53 pounds – about 437 total claims that about 278 pounds lighter than the steel monocoque Porsche 911 Turbo. The structural elements are bonded with the epoxy resin patented process. With all the new spatial structure is claimed that 13 per cent should be stiffer than the current structure and record a heavy 220 pounds empty weight, which bodes well for performance and fuel economy.

Although we have not yet heard of suspension design, the 2015 Audi R8 will probably move the basic geometry of the modern 4-wheel double-wishbone/coil-spring front and rear stabilizers, installation of classic sports car it works very well. However, we are not surprised to see this increased shock “Magne Ride” as the new standard. As in other cars, including other Audis use these dampers a special fluid to vary the resistance in two or more driver-selectable modes. Be ABS disc brakes on all 4 wheels, of course, no doubt, supported with larger rotors of the ESP stability control with traction control Audi.

In contrast to the structure of the new Audi R8 V10 2015 model remains familiar 4.2-liter V8 and 5.2-liter Lamborghini-based if each will produce more energy. V8 should get 30 horses adjusted U.S. total about 450, while the V10 should be good for 550 hp, 25 According to Greg Kable, these increases are replaced by a variable intake manifold and increased system pressure, derived direct fuel injection. Although Audi has developed a twin-turbo V8’s high-end sports sedan S8 great (and Bentley Continental), the brand has decided to stay with the non-turbo power to keep the handling characteristics of the R8, which is considered an important factor The success of the model. As a connoisseur Audi Cable said: “We want to keep the throttle response, hiking nature [power] of the delivery and the inherent noise, see ‘What distinguishes our cars, many of them decides now forced” induction – a clear reference to BMW and Mercedes-Benz .

2015 Audi R8 should be more than a 6-speed manual transmission and the next GT Limited reported in a new manual 7-speed dual-clutch transmission automatically behaves like a conventional automatic. What is clear is whether the 7-speed and non-GT will simply replace your current drive, 6-speed, called Audi R-Tronic clutch. We believe that the dual clutch transmission its way into the regular models from, if only because it promises so much smoother changes and with the extra speed, better fuel efficiency. As already mentioned, the quattro all-wheel drive is standard in all areas, no doubt, with some improvements in 2015 Audi R8 own.
