    • Hardcore second generation Audi R8 GT with rear wheel drive on the way?

      That is the rumor being circulated due to this set of spyphotos. You may recall Audi did a first generation Audi R8 GT which received a bump in power along with roughly 200 pounds stripped out. That car was all wheel drive.


      Audi recently launched a RWS series of limited edition rear wheel drive R8's. The best way to shave weight off the R8 would be to go to rear wheel drive. Maybe they will, maybe they won't, who knows.

      Expect the R8 GT to have more power and a bit less weight whether it has all wheel drive or not. Also expect suspension and aero revisions.

      It will be interesting to see how much further they continue to push the naturally aspirated 5.2 liter V10.

        So it would seem now we know what the prototype really is and there of course is the possibility of both.
