The Audi R8 is known to be one of the best among powerful supercars, however there is some doubt about its performance future after reports that it may be in for some big downsizing.

Rumors have been going around about the Audi R8 not offering a V8 engine soon. Instead it was said that they may go for the smaller V6 engine.

The V6 engine in question is the same one that was used on the Porsche Panamera and this is the 2.9 litre twin turbocharged engine offering up 400 horses along with 405 torque.

If the rumors prove to be true then the makeover V6 engine could mean a step back for the Audi R8. This is due to the fact that the vehicle has always been able to offer up plenty of power and a smaller engine doesn’t sound such a great idea.

But what do you think about the Audi R8 if it offered up the smaller engine?
