The coming news of a 2018 Audi R10 concept model has stormed the market and the emerging pictures of the car are here to back it up. This is really an exciting piece of news, but we do not have a whole lot to support it and determine how far they are planning to take this model. The production car has not been firmly stated for release, but it does seem exciting to have one.
The 2018 Audi R10 is a two-seat sports car which will make its way within the luxury segment. It has the classic car look and manages to integrate the design and the cues of models from the past and also give us a sense of a modern design here as well.
There are already many theories regarding this car and how it might fare in the market. The production car will probably not be too far off and we are here in our review bringing you all the currently available news and specs of the car so you do not only have the pictures to go with.
2018 Audi R10 Release Date
The 2018 Audi R10 is a concept model for now, but with a tendency to become a full-fledged production vehicle in due course of time. The model might go through some changes until that happens but we are expecting it to come out as early as 2019. If everting goes well, this concept will be built into a car which will start sales and be offered for use for the customers.
What is the Price?
It is maybe a bit too early to talk about the price of the 2018 Audi R10, but we can make our estimation about it. The price that we are certainly going to get is going to amount to $115,000 to $160,000, which is a very hefty sum for a vehicle like this. But we are hoping that they do bring all the gadgets and comfort sets that they are saying they are doing so we get a very lucrative offer from Audi.
The most exciting part of the 2018 Audi R10 is its exterior. The car looks pretty good for a sports car and has certain elements of a futuristic racer. Although it appears in the luxury segment you will be hard-pressed to immediately place it there. But after carefully considering the details you will be convinced that that is its place. The only thing that they have released is that they are making this car using advanced aerodynamics and giving it a sleek and a revolutionary character. But as we were able to see form the pictures, the front end has a very peculiar grille and added openings. Some fixed but also extended side plates are seen on the sides. The tail end is uniquely designed and shows us the characteristics of a racer that we mentioned. All in all, it would be interesting to see all of this on the production model, but as things usually go a lot of it will be dropped.
Taking about the interior of the 2018 Audi R10 is a lot more difficult. First of all, there are far less pictures and stats released about the interior compared to other parts. Secondly, most of the gadgets are still rumored and have not been actually confirmed that they are going to make it inside the car. What we are able to see is that this is an elegant two-seater and that it comes with a centrally mounted engine. It has a luxury and very fierce look on the inside which we came to appreciate. Audi is sparing no funds when it comes to designing this model so we are getting a model which will probably make a lot of efforts to get as many likes as possible.
What is There Under the Hood of the 2018 Audi R10?
There are many rumors about the possible engine used for the 2018 Audi R10 but some of them might be true. We are certain that they are planning to add new technology to make the powertrain and are employing advanced mechanics. But not a lot is talked about it and it will be confirm a little bit later what they actually decide to do here. For now we are most certain that they are going to employ a 4.0-liter V-8 engine which is going to motivate the vehicle enough for a stellar performance. Sadly, there are no words on the output of now and these will depend on the mechanics they employ to make the engine.
0-60 mph and Top Speed
The newest 2018 Audi R10 will need to be quick so it races past the competition. The employments which the engine adds will be crucial to make the car as quick as it possibly can be. The luxury segment does not require speed so much as luxury but this model will race to 0-60 mph in 8.1 seconds as it was stated. No word on the top speed and it will be available once the output stats are.
Improvements Made for the Fuel Economy
One things that they are adamant in improving is the fuel economy of the 2018 Audi R10. Even in its concept stage the car will need to make better stats in terms of fuel usage. What we assume the car will do is to use the newly formed mechanics to improve on the fuel usage. Some news have stated that this model should improve on fuel use for 15% and from there on we can hope to get better rates.
The new 2018 Audi R10 is still in the concept stage and the dimensions are not disclosed officially. Until the car reaches its development stage and until we see the production version, some things might change for the car. The production version might decide to implement dimensional change but we are still not sure how big the concept version is.
Safety and Security
One of the top concerns of the 2018 Audi R10 is the amount of safety and security the car will have. Well this is a thing that we should not be worried about at all. The R10 will certainly have a large safety package and we can be assured that major safety concerns are being made. The vehicle will probably be made with the top safety additions that make the prospect of this car even greater. Expect advanced equipment to make it in.
Rivaling Cars and Other Models
The new form of the 2018 Audi R10 will probably give it new and different cars to go against with. The old version of the R10 was simply a racing car but with the change to the luxury segment we will probably get new and different vehicles. The current opposing models were the Porsche 919 and the Porsche GT1, but we will have to see how much will the car change and then we can probably also accept the new competing cars.
