Audi Might Actually Build a More Affordable R8 With a V6

For $162,000 and change, you could buy a brand new Audi R8 with 540 horsepower and a snarling V10. That’s not exactly what one would call ‘cheap.’ Luckily for you, Audi wants to sweeten the deal with a more affordable version, relatively speaking.
There aren’t a ton of rumors to go by, but one would assume the lighter, more efficient R8 V6 would come strapped with turbos, fitted with rear-wheel-drive, and pump out somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 horsepower. That would put it directly in competition with cars like the F-Type, Corvette, and Porsche 911.
