The renowned German automaker, Audi, hints at a significant revelation for its R8 model, set to be unveiled on September 12th. As industry enthusiasts are aware, Audi has plans to discontinue its V10 supercar, at least within the U.S. market.
Naturally-aspirated V10 supercars seem to be nearing their end. Lamborghini is making tweaks to its Huracan, and Audi has already shared its intention to pull the R8 model from the U.S. market.
Audi’s teaser came in the form of a statement on their official Instagram page, accompanied by a series of photos showcasing an R8 draped in unique graphics. This leads to speculation that we might be looking at a special retirement edition of the R8. Regrettably, Audi hasn’t divulged more, leaving fans and experts guessing about the specifics of this announcement.
The future of Audi’s sole supercar, at least in its current configuration, seems uncertain. There are growing rumors suggesting the Germans might be working on an emission-free version of the vehicle.
Regardless of the speculation, all eyes will be on Audi come September 12th, as the automobile community awaits more details on the fate of the R8.
