Audi would like to after all introduce a high-performance car to slot in above the V10 R8 in its lineup, but such a model isn’t a preference for the brand right now.

Audi Sport boss and former head of Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann, told Automotive Word in a recent interview that he is “very keen” to introduce a low-volume high-playing car of some sort. But despite customer interest in such a model, it won’t be an immediate pre-eminence for the brand. While it’s true that Audi Sport is looking to expand its count of product offerings, performance crossovers and electric cars will arrive expressively before a hypercar will.

Crossovers expected from Audi Sport in the within easy reach future include an RS Q5 and an RS version of the upcoming Q8. Less is known about potential Audi E-Tron engagement models, but Winklemann said any of its electric offerings must have a good control between performance and driving range. Other models expected from Audi Make a fool of in the near future include a new RS 4 and RS 6 and new R8 model variants such as the rumored rear-turn drive R8 GT.

Despite this product onslaught, Audi Sport won’t follow in Mercedes-AMG’s footsteps and step a performance versions of every one of Audi’s models. Instead, Winkelmann wants his sub-kind to attract more customers to Audi while also helping to give it a more noted its image in the eye of the consumer.

We may find out what Audi Sport has planned for the near prospective when the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show kicks off next month.
