Monday, December 29th 2014. | Audi

Some snap shots just surfaced online. Those shots showed some details of the new 2015 Audi R8. This would be the second generation of the wonderful car. If you pay closer attention, it’s clear that the interior is drastically revamped. There are a bunch of new features making appearances on its interior, like a new all-digital dash. There are also small LED running lights that look even more stylish than before. When it was tested in a famous circuit recently, the new series was not really hidden behind heavy camouflage, which is a good thing because we can really see that appears on the inside and where it differs from the last release.

We can see clearly the shape of the car through the new shoots. It still maintains the old basic dimensions. This is never a bad thing, at least it does not matter much considering other enhancements are pretty obvious. Some visual upgrades make the new series more tempting than ever before. For example, the new series come with front air intakes as well as a smaller front grille. Is there anything new on the rear end? Of course, there are new exhausts, a large rear diffuser, etc. The insider confirmed that the new car will share some characteristics with the Huracán especially in their layouts. The difference is that the new Audi features wider tracks and a longer wheelbase.

Speaking of the technological advances, the new car also has a rear firewall. This one is carried over from the Huracán. The body frame will be mostly made from aluminum. The material is known for being lightweight and strong. With this material, the car has successfully shed off some weight. There is nothing new about the engines. They are all the same as what the current Audi brings, V8 and V10 engines. The latter is similar to the 5.2-liter that powers the Huracán series. With this spec, the engine can generate up to 602bhp. This wonderful supercar is truly one of a kind event in the Audi family. Its performance is steps ahead of any series, very astonishing, indeed.

The next generation has some different colors available for purchase. It means that you can choose a car that you really like. There will be several models rolling out to dealers. All of them differ in feature, but they are powered by different engines. As for features, there are real-time traffic, Bluetooth, and excellent Audio cover on some models. The interior has a kind of limited cargo. It’s expected from the weight reduction. Though the new generation is yet to be tested by the official agencies, it is flooded with a bunch of safety features.
