2020 Audi R8 GT Review
First, the front fascia receives a series of new styling settings, which include a slightly larger grille, a sharper front splitter with Lambo-type fins on the outside of the lower vents, and three small splints on the Grille and under the hood as a tribute to Audi Sport Quattro, winner of the World Rally Championship of the years 80.
At the rear, there is a larger ventilation area between the taillights and the rear bumper, and the exhaust pipes have more silver-lined housings with a large rear-side separator in the middle.
Audi Sport has been seen trying an updated version of its supercar 2020 Audi R8 GT. Previously it was thought to be a more unconditional variant of GT, a source has revealed that the planned changes are only a mid-cycle update for the car.
The latest tester carries new front and rear fascias as well as large oval exhaust points instead of the square units of the current 2020 Audi R8 GT. A pair of oval escapes is a characteristic feature of Audi sport design, so perhaps the designers have implemented them to connect the R8 with other models of the Audi Sport line.
As for the other changes, we can see that the grid has become wider and flat. There is also a gap between the headlights and the shots below, which acquire a more angular shape compared to the shots currently found in the R8. Finally, there is the new lip spoiler and this leads to extended side skirts on the sides of the car.
In the rear, there are the above-mentioned escape points plus a new ventilation hole covering the entire fascia. It is difficult to judge, but there may also be some active elements in the rear diffuser. Audi Sport presented a new version of the car show of Paris 2018 with the presentation of the race car 2019 R8 LMS (shown below).
It is not clear what mechanical upgrades are planned, although we could see an increase in the power of the 5.2-liter V-10 of the car. The same engine in the Lamborghini hurricane performer generates 640 horsepower and 442 lb/ft of torque. That’s against 540 hp and 398 lb-ft in the current R8 V10 and 610 hp and 413 lb-ft in the current R8 V10 Plus.
Note that, in a moment, Audi Sport was planning an entry-level R8 V6 with a dual-turbocharger V-6. The model had to be directed to high tax markets for high-displacement engines, although it is now believed that the car is off the radar. In fact, Audi Sport does not even have a plan for a replacement for the R8 at this time, as the company is investigating the electrification of its future models and can launch a fully electric successor to the R8. Audi Sport will also launch the Super Electric sedan e-tron 2020 Audi R8 GT.
Look for the updated R8 to debut at the end of this year or early next. You should get to the showrooms as model 2020. An updated version of the R8 Spyder should arrive at approximately the same time.
Things will be pretty busy for Audi Sport in the next few years. Other models in processing include an updated TT RS, new Rs 7 and new Rs Q5 and Rs Q8 SUV.
The other distinctive changes are under the hood, or back cover, we should say, where 2020 Audi R8 GT continues to proudly “Nein, Danke ” The turbochargers. The 5.2-liter V10 is still offered in two power outputs, this time with 562 horsepower and 406 lb.-ft. of the base motor torque, an increase of 30 hp and 8 lb.-ft. Over the past year
As for the R8 Performance model, it increases the temperature up to 611 hp and 417 lb.-ft., a 9 hp stroke and 4 lb.-ft. Over the past year, so clearly the base model gets the best end of the deal.
With regard to technology upgrades, the R8 keeps it focused only on performance, with a series of software adjustments that Audi ensures will improve driving experience, such as three new profiles in the drive mode selector for Dry, wet and snow conditions adjustments to the stability control settings that help shorten the braking distance of the car.
The 2020 Audi R8 GT will go on sale in Europe early next year and come to the United States later. The prices will be available closer to the launch.
