The R8 manages to combine a sleek modern exotic sports car appearance with just enough power, yet it is not an all-out supercar like a Lamborghini Gallardo or Ferrari Italia. The latest Audi design debuted at the 2006 Paris Auto Show, and may be about to do an about-face!

Well, I suppose some five years of sporting the same telltale grill and shape could appear stale to some, so what is Audi intending to do? The photo depicts a new front end for the Audi R8, a mock-up that could become standard if met with approval.

The changes include a hexagonal grille rather than the standard oval, and an edge where it meets the lights. Aggressive LED lights are prominent, and the headlight will span from the quarter panel to the grille. The grille mesh has been altered from the current crisscross to a hole-style mesh.
