PostHeaderIcon Audi Shoots Down Rumors That It’s Developing a V-6 R8

Pew! Pew! Pew! That’s the sound of Audi taking aim at rumors that it’s developing an entry-level, V-6-powered R8. The German automaker quickly responded to rumors of such a car, dismissing it as nothing more than a rumor. Word of the possibility of an R8 V-6 spread quickly on rumors that Audi was considering adding new options for its supercar in time for its mid-life cycle. The company immediately responded by saying it wasn’t true, leaving plenty to wonder if the recently launched R8 RWS is the only new R8 that’s on the table.

“There is no V-6 planned for the R8.”

Well, that didn’t take long, did it? Only a few days after rumors of a V-6-powered R8 were reignited, the German automaker quickly responded by bringing out the water hose. According to an Audi spokesperson who spoke to Road & Track, a V-6-powered R8 isn’t happening. In his own words, the spokesperson said: “there is no V-6 planned for the R8.” So, there you have it. The entry-level, Audi R8 V6 isn’t arriving anytime soon, if it even does in the first place.

Now that it’s clear, we can safely assume that the entry-level R8 will remain the 540-horsepower, V-10 model. The R8 V10 RWS will slot in as the new trim option, offering prospective customers the chance to enjoy the thrill of the supercar with a rear-wheel drive setup as opposed to the company’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The 610-horsepower R8 V10 Plus will also retain its place as the range-topping model.

“According to Audi, the current R8 still has a long life ahead of it”

It’s important to note here that just because an Audi spokesperson shot down the rumors of a V-6 R8, it doesn’t mean Audi never considered building one. After all, the talk of a V-6-powered R8 stretches back a few years when Roland Schala, the car’s technical lead, told Top Gear that the V-6 engine is the perfect engine for a car like the R8. Then, in 2016, a reported future product lineup showed a V-6 R8 that was being targeted for a 2018 launch.

But as they say, the industry evolves on a daily business. Yesterday’s news is today’s gossip, and it seems that we’re dealing with that with all these rumors of a V-6 R8. So, if you were looking to score an R8 before the current-generation model runs its course, the most affordable version remains the $165,450 R8 V10. Don’t worry; there’s still time to save up for the car because, according to Audi, the current R8 still has a long life ahead of it. Just don’t wait too long to get one because it’s unlikely that a third-generation model is happening. At least that comes straight from Audi itself.
