    • Next gen 2023 Audi R8 not dead and set to go Hybrid likely paired to a V10 gasoline motor

      Imagine the current R8 with a hybrid drivetrain. That essentially points you toward the next generation R8 according to a recent Audi Sport interview. The rumors of the R8 being killed off or that it would be electric only were wrong.


      Expect the V10 with electric motors:

      Things can change as the director of Audi Sport states the next generation R8 platform is not decided. It is clear though a hybrid is in the cards.

      Keeping the V10 for racing customers as well as having something unique in the marketplace makes complete sense. Add electric motors if you must but do not get rid of that gem of a motor. We can live with that.
