New second-gen Audi R8 spied for the first time on the Nürburgring

Here we have the very first pictures of the second-generation Audi R8, caught testing on the Nürburgring, and on the roads near the famous race track.

The testing season on the ‘Ring just started and Audi engineers are already busy testing the all-new R8 with an evolutionary design and no big surprises.

The new R8 has plenty of disguise, but we can already see that the front is lower with new grille, new headlights and air intakes. The side air intake looks rounder, when compared to the current model.

On some of the pictures you can also see the daylight running lights and the front indicators. At the rear we can also see little of the new taillight graphic, new exhausts and a massive rear diffuser.

The rear window over the engine looks also wider compared to the current model and we also get to see the active rear spoiler.

New Audi R8 shares its platform with the recently revealed Lamborghini Huracan and the range topping model is expected to use the same 602bhp 5.2-litre V10 found in the new Lambo.

An updated 4.2-litre V8 is also expected to carry over and there are rumours that Audi is working on a smaller turbocharged petrol engine for the entry level R8.
