The next generation of the Audi R8 is here, holding true to form with minimal styling changes. The tweaks for the new lineup are barely noticeable, lurking mostly in the power and performance arenas. Exterior alterations were kept at revised LED lighting, rounded exhaust pipes and revised bumpers. New trim options will be available for the cabin. The R8 still snags hearts with that oversized greenhouse and dazzling shape.
