Audi is preparing a successor to the R8: the sports car may be electric.

It was supposed earlier that the model will change its generation in 2021. According to more recent data the novelty of German brand will appear in 2023.

Production of Audi R8 two-door sports car was launched in 2007. Since then, the model has changed its generation only once — in 2015.

On the Old World market, sales of the niche car have been gradually declining over the past few years.

At the end of last year, severely affected by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, dealers sold 747 units, which is 21.3% less than the year before.

By comparison, customers bought 1,428 units in 2016, the peak year for this generation.

Previously, the next-generation model was supposed to be introduced in 2021, but the company hasn’t had any fresh information about the development of the novelty for a long time (although there are only a few months left before the end of this year).

Not so long ago, Audi’s head of sales and marketing Hildegard Wortmann said that the new R8 this year is not worth waiting for.

According to the brand’s representative, the R8 is now a symbol of Audi, and he explained that «icons of the past are not necessarily icons of the future.»

In an interview with Top Gear, Hildegard Wortmann noted that the successor to the sports car will not just be the same car equipped with an electric motor.

The top manager explained that «it should be the R8, but different». It is not yet known whether the next R8 will be sold under the same name.

Now there is fresh information regarding the successor to the Audi R8.

According to the German edition Auto Bild, the company will present a brand new sports car relatively soon, probably in 2023.

Details about the future of the cars are still scarce and they are, of course, hypothetical.

According to the German edition, the R8, which is expected in 2023, can get a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine under the hood. Now its output ranges from 460 to 650 hp.

To date, this engine is used in various brands that are part of the German Volkswagen group: we are talking about the models of the Audi RS line, as well as the Lamborghini Urus.

According to preliminary data, the successor of the Audi R8 will be equipped with a hybrid power plant, no details about it yet.

It is expected that the total capacity of the system of the new sports car will be equal to 700 hp. At the same time Auto Bild believes that the future novelty can get completely electric «stuffing».

Its characteristics are not reported yet. In general, it would be quite logical if we take into account that Europe continues to tighten the economy, and Audi is preparing for a complete transition to electric power in the future.

We shall note that the actual sports car Audi R8 is equipped with V10 engine with the volume of 5,2 liters. In the base version the payoff is 562 hp, in the top one — 612 hp.

There is a seven-speed automatic gearbox with double clutch offered to this motor.

The starting price of the coupe on the home market in Germany makes 208 thousand Euro (the equivalent of about 17,2 million rubles at the current exchange rate) and for Spyder it is necessary to give not less than 221 thousand Euro (about 18,2 million rubles).
