With Audi being owned by VW and VW owning so much great diesel technology, why not push a little of it into an R8? Well, the folks over at Audi have decided it is time for that to happen. The 2016 model year will feature a diesel variant of the R8. No one is certain yet what engine will be used, but it is currently being speculated that it could be one of Audi’s V8 4.0-liter TDI turbodiesel that is available over the Atlantic Ocean, or there are talks that a V-10 with a 5 liter displacement could also make an appearance. As always, a V8 and V10 option will be available in regular gas-guzzling options.
