Back on July 15th we reported that the 2016 Audi R8 would "inevitably" be turbocharged. I’m sure the news was a bit expected, considering Audi throws a turbo at most vehicles in its lineup. Now, it looks like Audi has had a change of heart.
During the international launch of the new R8 last week, our sources learned that the R8 will not be getting a turbocharged engine anytime in the near future. For now, Audi will stick with two naturally aspirated variants of the 5.2-liter V-10.
