Audi R8 Green Hell or more hadcore version of the supercarMarch 20, 2020
Representatives of the German brand have registered the trademark Audi R8 Green Hell with the patent office. It is possible that a new name will be hiding a haunted version of the supercar, which may claim to establish the absolute record of the Nurburgring track.
The Patent and Trademark Office is again becoming a valuable source of information about future cars – it was thanks to them that we learned about the new logo of Nissan and its sports car Nissan Z. Now these same sources tell us that Audi has registered something interesting in the European Union Intellectual Property Office. The guys from Ingolstadt claim the right to own the nickname “R8 Green Hell”.
What could they use this name for? Most likely, we are talking about a race-track-oriented version of the supercar, given the fact that Green Hell (Green Hell) is a nickname given in the early 1960s by the legendary Formula 1 driver Sir Jackie Stewart. That is how he called one of the most dangerous and difficult routes in the world – the German Nurburgring.
Audi Sport boss Oliver Hoffman said almost two years ago that his sports division has “some good ideas for creating a more extreme R8.”
We are not sure if he was referring to the R8 Green Hell, but he said that the car with the V10 engine will be certified for racing in the FIA GT3 European Championship.
If the GT3 R8 is on the way, expect a mid-engined supercar to “lose” a few pounds and possibly get a little more power from the 5.2-liter FSI engine. It produces 612 hp. performed by Audi R8 Performance, but the same engine develops 631 hp. in the Italian coupe Lamborghini Huracan Evo.
For R8 Green Hell, it makes sense to try to claim the title of the fastest production car at the Nurburgring, that is, take this title from the current “king” – the Italian Aventador. SVJ, whose full circle pass result is 6 minutes 44.97 seconds.
