The second generation of the Audi R8 will be officially presented to the public in a couple of months, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
After the introduction of the Lamborghini Huracan, the successor of the Gallardo, last year, in Geneva, most questions have been focusing on the development of its cousin, the Audi R8, in a new generation, but it seems that development of the German supercar have been made quietly, as this is just about ready to be officially presented to the public. According to the guys from Car Advice, who have spoken to Ulrich Hackenberg, the Audi board member for technical development, the model in question will be making its debut in two months, at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, in March.
The new generation of the Audi R8 is expected to be riding on the same platform as the one under the Lamborghini Huracan. The two vehicles will also share some of their technologies and the same 5.2 liter V10 engine, which has been inherited from the Gallardo and updated for the Huracan, will also be adopted under the hood of the 2016 Audi R8. The German vehicle will also give birth to a “green” version, which might be wearing the “tron” in its name. In terms of design, the new rear mid-engined and all-wheel drive supercar should be instantly recognizable so we are expecting an evolutionary look. More details on it remain unknown for the moment and will probably be announced in Geneva.
