Maybe this R8 V10 will have a beter gearbox

Iam not surprised, they are using the gearbox of the A4. You’d think that they would develop the gearbox along with the engine.

you’re right, the V12 TDI R8 has 1000nm of torque, but for now the Audi engineers are keeping all that power to 503 nm becouse the gearbox can’t handle it

Iam thinkng more in terms of economy and the fact that the V12 is ultra silent for a diesel. It would be cool to zip past cars without the engine making more than a whisper.

The V12 TDI R8 is a very good car too, but i still prefer this one

This is good but for some reason I would prefer the V12 TDI R8. Maybe that is because it has 1000nm of torque.

that’s amazing; this car will have more horsepower then the Audi R8 V12 TDI Le Mans that has 507 hp. I can’t wait for more specs about this car!!
