Audi R8 sport car will be offered initially with the Lamborghini Gallardo’s V10 engine, and not with the V8 engine how it was said earlier.

Audi R8, set to come in mid 2007, already shares much of its running gear with the Gallardo. The V10 engine, 550 hp would put the R8 in Porsche Turbo territory (AWD, 480 hp, $123,000). The quattro-equipped R8 is said to be positioned against Porsche’s all-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4S, with What Car? reporting a company spokesperson as saying the Audi will be priced slightly above the Porsche, which lists for $87,100 in the U.S. market.
