Audi R8 'Green Hell' name registered. Is it for a Nürburgring record-breaker?

Audi appears to have a new project in the works, based on its recent application to trademark the name “R8 Green Hell", a reference to the famous Nurburgring circuit in Germany. The application, filed earlier this month, points to Audi possibly developing a faster iteration of its existing mid-engined R8 sports car. The 'Green Hell' name is likely inspired by Germany’s famous Nürburgring racing circuit, which was once referred to as ‘Green Hell’ by British Formula One driver Jackie Stewart.

Five reasons to love the 2020 Audi RSQ3

That alone is reason enough to love something a bit different... but here are five standout highlights from what is a proper performance SUV.
