Audi R20 supercar concept based on R18 design
|   Monday, December 31, 2012
Audi has been producing sports cars for a long time. The cars have been performing well on the race tracks, and have kept up the reputation of Audi. There has been a series of luxury cars also from Audi. These luxury cars have been equally impressive and they have also been good for the name of the brand. There have been no Supercars; however, from Audi that has attracted much attention. Audi has put an effort into changing this, and is going to release a Supercar in the near future.


Audi proposes to release the R20, a supercar version of the R18 Le Mans racer. This is not a very farfetched idea. Rather it is quite feasible. Some minor changes to the already existing design of the R18 can transform it into the R20, a car that will be legal to drive on the roads. The minor changes include adding a second seat to the R18, and a trademark wide grille with the symbol for Audi, and the vehicle is set to hit the road.

The officials at the head of Audi had decided to do something new for a long time. They experimented with different car models for some time now. Some changes at of the top authorities of Audi took place recently. After all these efforts, Audi succeeded in planning the R20, the ultimate supercar. The original model, R18, is inspirational in itself. The on road version of the car is an improvement of the R18, so it is obviously going to be phenomenal.

At first the idea of a supercar based on the R18 seemed quite distant. A race car that competed in the Le Mans race is one of the best in its class. To transform that into a supercar, a comfortable luxurious version that is fit to drive on the road was next to impossible. Yet Audi succeeded in at least planning the supercar.

The manufacturing of this supercar has not yet been started. Still it can be appreciated that the prototype of the car can be launched as soon as 2015. The car is going to be a limited edition item, with the total number of units manufactured ranging from 100 to a maximum of 250. The car is going to be very expensive. It would stay exclusive to even the millionaires. Still if the car performs as the R18, and is street legal, then the limited units produced will sell like hot cake, as per estimations.

The car will be driven by a very powerful twin turbo V6 engine. The engine is capable of producing high power and torque. The engine pushes out a total of more than 500 kilowatts. The two electric motors produce a total of additional 110 kilowatts, along with the 405 kilowatts produced by the V6. The horsepower of the car is also very impressive.

The car keeps up with the modern technology. It is not overcrowded with features, and holds on to the integrity of the R18. The idea is an overall success.
