The new Audi R8 is expected to go into production late this year, and will be launched in early 2007.

The Audi R8 shares a version of the Lamborghini Gallardo’s structural underpinnings and will come with a detuned version of the Gallardo’s 5.0-litre V10, giving 450bhp, as well as the 420bhp V8 found in the RS4.

Current rumors around engine choices seem to be centered on the 4.2 FSI V8 engine from the RS 4 and the 5.2-liter FSI V10 from the S8 and S6.
