Audi S8 with Lamborghini engine ? - the STORY

The new Audi S8 has a V10 engine by Lamborghini.

At the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show, Audi AG will show their brand new S8 flagship, powered by a 5.2 liter V10 petrol engine that was based on the Lamborghini Gallardo's power unit.

In the big Audi saloon, this engine will have a power output of 450 Bhp at 7000 rpm with a 540Nm at 3500 rpm, this is more than enough to urge this four door car to very high speeds, but in typical German tradition, the top speed is limited to 250 Km/h (155 Mph).

This engine is the first result of the German - Italian partnership, taking Italian mastership in building engines and combining this with German workmanship on larger, four door cars ... perhaps we will see a new Lamborghini GT soon that will also feature a four seat arrangement, however personally I think a 2+2 GT would be a better idea to keep the more exclusive, sporty character of a Lamborghini.
