Is This The All-New 2016 Audi R8?

To quote the wise Col Hans Landa (Inglorious Bastards), “Facts can be so misleading -but rumors, true or false, are often revealing”. Sometimes this is how we feel whenever we get to see leaked photos or when we hear someone use the word “allegedly”. It’s exciting!

Thanks to instagram user ‘dreboog‘, what we might be seeing here appears to be the all-new Audi R8. In the post, he also mentions that the scoop came from an anonymous Audi insider, which is another thing we always enjoy hearing.

And so just by analyzing its looks, it seems to the all-new Audi R8 and not some expertly executed body kit hoax. Never mind that the headlights, the overall shape of the front grille and the spoiler are downright identical to what we’ve seen in our spy shots. It’s when we looked further down the side of the car where you have a midsection design line starting from underneath the side mirror and moving straight towards the rear wheel arches – we realized that this is exactly what we saw in the spy shots. It’s got the same design cues.

Also, the current generation Audi R8 has a slightly different shoulder line, different mirrors, different grille, headlights and so on. This is clearly something else.

Just so we can keep the good news flowing, we’ll remind you that you won’t have to wait much longer until the R8 is officially revealed at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.
