Audi R4

http://www.motorauthority.com/news/c...-2011-audi-r4/

At roughly 2800 lb and 300 HP..that will be a quick car. I hope the production looks like the picture in the article. I wonder how much the base model will be. I'm guesstimating that the base model will be at least 5k more than the top 3.2 TT model.

If the 300 HP version is around 50K, I think it will be a great seller.

Yeah, even the new TT are over 3k lb's.

I'm just going by what's stated in the article...

The chassis will feature steel construction but engineers are targeting a final kerb weight of around 1,250kg

That's just a chopped Audi Mettroproject. Still, this car should be interesting indeed.

Last count I think was 14 models over the next 7 years, that will all but match the amount BMW are believed to be introducing over the same period.

If they can really keep the weight down...that'll be one nice car.
