Audi R10 supercar reportedly approved for production with up to 1000bhp

The second-generation Audi R8 is expected to debut sometimes this year or in early 2015 and it looks like in addition to a new R8 there will be soon an even more powerful supercar with the four rings.

According to Auto Motor & Sport Sweden, Audi management has given the green light for a new supercar – the Audi R10. The new supercar would be bigger than the R8 with styling heavily influenced by Audi’s Le Mans R18 race car.

The R10 would feature a lightweight carbon fibre monocoque chassis and a twin-turbo 6.0-litre V10 that produces around 850bhp.

The high-output V10 could be combined with electric motors for hybrid model for a total output of around 1000bhp, putting it right where the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari are.

Production is reportedly to start in 2016 and of course the production would be very limited.

The new platform and engine are very likely to be used also by Porsche, Lamborghini and Bentley.

Porsche is reportedly already working on a new model to slot between the 911 Turbo S and 918 Spyder and there are plans to use the V10 in the second-generation Panamera.
