The new sports car will be easier to notice courtesy of its angular style and modern tweaks in-line with current-generation Audis. The interior will be similar to the TT concept revealed earlier in 2014.

The new R8 has a mid-engine platform, one also used in the Lamborghini Huracan  though it has not been confirmed what will power Audi's next sports car.

Rumour has it that it will use a version of the RS7's twin-turbo V8 and a non-turbo V10. A plug-in hybrid will be available.

Engines should be mated to the automaker’s S-tronic seven-speed dual-clutch auto gearbox though a six-speed manual is in the works.

The second-generation Audi R8 will be launched in 2015.
