Audi R8 And Lamborghini Huracan May Get 2.5L Turbo For China

China always derives special treatment from the carmakers, just like the extended wheelbase versions of sedan and so on. Expectedly, this new is not too different from the given condition, and a source confirmed the People Republic will get a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine fitted inside the very muscular Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracan.

The decision is taken by VW Group to go for this new venture in the bay as a result for the heavy taxation on bigger engine displacements in Asia. But it is very disappointing to imagine a Lamborghini Huracan with such drivetrain in place of the rowdy V10 engine.Audi R8 And Lamborghini Huracan China

Audi has already portrayed TT Clubsport Turbo with the 2.5-liter motor with electric boost that churns out 600PS of max power and 650NM of torque, enough to pull either of the cars with same excitement, but with smaller displacement of ‘less excitement’.

However, the fun and experience of driving a naturally aspirated engine is really out of this world, and that is even explained better by one of the top hats of Audi. As the small motors need electric boosting even after turbocharged, the weight is suffered due to the additional kerb of battery pack, which further dilutes the thrill of performance, he commented

Hence, during the recent past Audi too was compelled with the weak demand of V8 and as result it dropped it from the lineup for pushing more the bigger displacements. So, it could become possible for the maker to sell R8 with a 2.5-litre.

Top 5 Expensive Cars Launched In India During 2014

The riches need a reason to splurge, but they get more cautious when it comes to cars. After all, the ‘most expensive’ is an ultimate option for them. So carmakers not shying of any filth to be stopping them from selling their niche cars in this extensive market, for which rolled out a number of them during 2014. Though, we managed that hard job to find the best five of them which made way to India over the past year. Mentioned here the top-five that raised the eyeballs in terms of prices they for which were launched, and the newness they offered to buyers.

Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II

The entry-level sedan of Rolls-Royce which has found many buyers in India during the lifetime, received a facelift during 2014 with the tag of Series II. Launched at a price of Rs 4.5 crore (ex-showroom Mumbai) the car saw new headlamps with daytime running lights, redesigned bumpers, fresh bonnet design and reworked tail lamps. The front air intakes do get chrome lining, whereas the range of selecting alloys have been widened with numerous other options.

Power remains constant at 563bhp from a 6.6-litre V12 engine.

Lamborghini Huracan

Lamborghini’s new baby car for India after the end of Gallardo, Huracan, was made to foray for a price of Rs 3.43 crore (ex-showroom Delhi). Though, this baby Bull of Italy ventured into the tradition of using a bombastic V10 engine for producing matured amount of 602bhp, with the electronically capped top-speed of 325kmph and 0-100kmph in 3.2 seconds. However, the cabin too is enough for housing only two at a time, both can travel in ultimate speed with the expertise of jet plane on steering, as well as at the passenger’s seat. For India, Lamborghini had added a special function of lifting up the nose by 40mm over the standard ground clearance for road conditions of this country.

Range Rover Long Wheelbase And Autobiography Edition

Range Rover which was already long enough to fit a King in its rear, now gets longer with more 186mm of wheelbase, where out of the whole 140mm is added for the rear seat only. The long-wheelbase edition can be easily identified from the size of rear doors where they comparatively appear bigger than before. So, those wishing to end their drive in the lap of luxury and also admit their vehicle shall be rugged and must take on the every terrain, surely this is the right option to choose from. Even getting more exclusive, buyers are given to choose from a bench and executive seats for the rear passenger. Large panoramic sunroof and 17-degree reclining seat at rear are standard on all the variants. Top of the line Autobiography Black edition takes the cake away, where subtle changes on outer paves way for the exclusive buyout. The 10.2-inch screen, massage rear seat, chiller compartment, special leather for seats, LED ambient light to suit the mood are some of the examples which its owners will experience. For the price tag of anything between Rs 2.08 crore and Rs 2.63 crore (launch price ex-showroom Delhi) it hits the nail on its head with options of petrol and diesel both. Former set of buyers (of petrol) can get the supercharged 5.0-litre V8 petrol of 510PS and 625Nm of torque. The 4.4-litre V8 diesel will send power of 339PS grunting over the 700Nm of torque. Another starting variant of diesel gets the base price stuck with its 3.0-litre mill. However, they say, the engine options are standard as of the stock Range Rover.

Jaguar F-Type Coupe

The success of Jaguar F-Type speaks about itself. Thoughtfully, the company has played smartly with this model, as launched the convertible first and then brought the hardtop called as F-Type Coupe later. Launched for the price of Rs 1.21 crore, it goes upto the max level of Rs 1.82 crore ex-showroom Mumbai. We loved this car just because of its Wild Cat-ish looks. But for the adrenaline lovers, British automaker had lent it number of options which sound like a music to the ears. Power of 340PS is just the standard for this coupe from a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine, whereas the slightly more powerful version called F-Type S delivers 40PS more than the said, and the result is 380PS. The top of line uses a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 for the staggering 550PS and 680Nm of torque. Wholly, the range topping also differs on the equipment level with 20-inch wheels as against the 18-inch of the said two. Top-speed of the range topper is clocked at 300kmph with 0-100kmph being touched in 4.2 seconds. The S trim of 380PS successfully delivers 275kmph of max-speed and 0-100kmph in 4.8 seconds.

Aston Martin Rapide S

Though, this launch happened in the last week of 2013, but this car turned towards 2014 for getting delivered into the hands of buyers. A family sports sedan with 4-passenger seating capacity, this turns out to be monstrous when led unchained on the open racetrack. The model already exists in the country back from 2011, but the addition of ‘S’ to the badge makes it worthy for a price of Rs 4.4 crore ex-showroom Mumbai. Now it enjoys a healthy power output of 550bhp (from 470bhp) and 619Nm of torque (against the 600Nm) with the traction being sent by a 6-speed AZ automatic transmission. One couldn’t deny its opulence of being a proper four-seater with the right balance of luxury and healthy sports characteristics. Wished, it could be in everyone’s wish list if desiring to shell out the tag of something more than Rs 4 crore.
