V10-powered Audi R8 unconfirmed for U.S.

The Audi R8 is still a stunning sight out on the roads but excitement is starting to dry-up, with traditionally long waiting lists now just withering to a month or two in most markets. To drum up interest once again, and attract new customers, Audi plans to launch several new versions over the next 12 months, including a new ‘Spider’ convertible as well as a high-performance RS variant. Before these arrive, however, Audi will start selling the R8 with a second engine option. Joining the current 420hp (313kW) and 317lb-ft (430Nm) 4.2L V8 version is the new V10 model powered by the naturally-aspirated 5.2L engine found in the S6.
