Codinome Scorpion

In 2012, when Audi dominated FIA World Endurance Championship, the German company was studying the viability to have a competitor for the hypercar holy trinity. However, the plans didn’t work as plan. One of the reason is, the combination of diesel-electrification is limited where the Scorpion could be sold. So, the company decided to postpone it.

Today, after almost six-year, Audi provides information that this project is here. In terms of the road car, the next-level in-house isn’t limited to the Audi R8. Note: The next generation Audi Avus, which was an inspiration for the Audi A4 Typ 8D
