Everybody already knows that Audi is preparing the launch of its newest supercar. The vehicle is highly on demand and there is a lot of hype about it. But actually, this text is not about that car, it actually speaks about a vehicle which has been spotted through spy photos somewhere on the streets of Europe.
It was spotted as a camouflaged car doing test drives and the spy pics have quickly swept the net. We have reasons to assume that this is actually Audi’s way of saying goodbye to its R8 edition by releasing the 2015 Audi R8 Final Edition version. This rumors have later been confirmed and the car is scheduled to appear first on the LA Auto Show, this year.
The release date is still far away to be announced, but we are happy to know that Audi is going to give us a way to say goodbye to one of its best brand vehicles by enabling the Final Edition model.
2015 Audi R8 Final Edition Exterior
As we still have not been officially introduced with the new 2015 Audi R8 Final Edition, the only thing we have to go on are the numerous spy pics which are circling the net.
That is why we are still shorthanded on the information about the inside of the car and may only presume what will be going on inside of the Final Edition. We are assuming that much of the inside will remain the same with only slight changes in the design but with a higher technological upgrade. On the other hand, there is quite a lot going on outside.
The initial impression is that the vehicle’s design is very aerodynamic. The makers of Audi have certainly decided to do something about the wind resistance and have managed to solve that problem or rather upgrade it by releasing a totally new and very aerodynamic design. The aggressive look of the vehicle is enhanced with the addition of the new side skirts.
A massive diffuser with an adjustable wing at the back were also added which are a great part of the car’s balance but also give it a cool new look as well. as for the exhaust setup, it is completely clear that it has been taken from the V10 Plus. And it really suits well, as one may say so. One can also say that the entire concept of the car has been modeled after the V10 Plus model, and you are probably right about that being the case with the front fascia.
But the lower apron has a totally new and innovative design, at least an uncharacteristic design seen from Audi. It incorporates a brand-new splitter and several winglets added as well. The hood on the other hand has been remodeled and mainly takes after the R8 LMS Ultra model. It has a large vent fitted on it, which is the characteristic of the LMS Ultra racer.
The R8 model is being sent to the history books in great fashion, and that is by upgrading its engine. By designing an aerodynamic exterior of the vehicle, we assume that the car has to be fitted with an engine which will give the car its edge and enable it to reach its potential and perform at great speeds.
That is why the first assumption about the engine were that the 2015 Audi R8 Final Edition will be using a 5.2-liter V10 engine. These were first rumors which have later been confirmed as the car will be fitted with the aforementioned engine which will enable it to reach the power of 570 horsepower, which is actually 20 horsepower more than V10 R8 model. This is truly an exciting time for the Audi brand as they are saying farewell to one of its legendary fitting it with a great engine as its retirement gift.
As we are still new to the concept of having the 2015 Audi R8 Final Edition a reality, all of these information are new to us and are getting them minute in and minute out. But sadly the price still isn’t one of them.
The official release is scheduled for the upcoming LA Auto Show, when we hope that the pricing of the vehicle will officially be announced and the official release date as well which is planned some time after the show.
