Report: Next-generation Audi A8 coming next year

According to a report by German publication Automobilwoche, the next-generation Audi R8 will be heading the market in 2010.

An Audi spokesman told the publication that the next-generation model will use the ASF II, the second generation of Audi’s Aluminum Space Frame. The spokesman said that the next-generation Audi A8 will initially be offered with an 8-cylinder diesel and petrol engines. Other engine choices will join the lineup after launch.

Unlike Mercedes-Benz’s S400 Hybrid and Lexus’s LS Hybrid, Audi has no plans to offer a hybrid version of the A8.
