The Aileron will continue to use the Audi 4.2 litre V8 that delivers 400 hp and a peak torque of 480 Nm. This state-of-the-art 5 valve 4 cam engine is now mated to a 6 speed Getrag manual or a 6 speed automatic ZF gearbox.

With the increased wheelbase (10cm / 4.5 inches) the doors grew by the same length allowing for more comfortable in- and egress. The first generation cars have split side windows which were not optimal in terms of sealing (wind noise and water management). The Aileron has single pane side glass that drops when the door is opened and closed, creating improved comfort level. The rear diffuser was redesigned for improved functionality. The redesigned rear lights are LED units. The outside mirrors were redesigned and the cone is mounted on two turbine fan blades, standard in body colour (but available in polished aluminum as an option).

Press release after the jump.
