Proposed 2015 Audi R8 performance is a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of more than 200 mph. This is based on the model with the 5.2-litre, 602 horsepower engine that powers the Huracan. This will also make use of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, although there will be a less-powerful, and so cheaper version.

The 2015 Audi R8 price has yet to be set, although we still expect it to be around the same price as the current model, which is just under $115,000 in the US.
