The new second-generation R8 was spotted undergoing testing at Germany’s Nurburgring race track sporting minimal camouflage.

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.
