It’s actually quite hard to believe that the Audi R8 has been with us for five years. But it has.
To celebrate all things R8 Audi have been busy reminding us that it’s not just the original R8 anymore – far from it – with the original R8 V 8 joined by the R8 V10, R8 Spyder, R8 V10 Spyder, R8 LMS, R8 GT, R8 e-Tron and probably more we can’t remember.
So we get treated to a bit of R8 action on video and claims that the R8 is a landmark in the history of design and sportscar evolution, which might be a bit of an exaggeration but there’s no doubt the Audi R8 has joined the Porsche 911 as a supercar you can use every day.
But what we get at the end of the video is a darkened outline of the new Audi R8 with the strap line ‘New Audi R8 – Coming’.
As far as we know the new Audi R8 is on its way and is expected to arrive in 2012 – perhaps at Paris in September – although we’re pretty sure it won’t be much more than a comprehensive facelift.
Still, with this video Audi has made it clear the new R8 is on the cards and not far off.
