The Germans are developing a new flagship supercar for Audi, which will receive a diesel hybrid setup for the rear wheels and the electric motor for the front. According to majority of official press releases of the company, the novelty will act as a link between the serial and racing model of Audi. In this case, it will not be the successor to the current R8, but will take the place of higher class and will compete with supercars.
