Doesn't look much faster than the old one.
Following yesterday’s official unveiling, comes the first look at the second-generation Audi R8 in action, complete with funky soundtrack. In base trim, the 2016 R8 comes with a 540-hp V10, but in ‘Plus’ guise that wonderful naturally-aspirated ten-cylinder unit generates 610 hp as well as a sublime exhaust note. Mated to a seven-speed S tronic gearbox, the new range-topping R8 will hit a top speed of 205 mph and sprint to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds.
Flat, wide and muscular, the new R8 has evolved the original model’s styling beautifully and we can’t wait to see this thing in the metal. In the meantime, enjoy the R8’s dynamic debut.
