Until fairly recently, the all-new upcoming Audi R8 has been pretty buttoned up.
Camouflage covers the vehicle head to toe, the interior is essentially a gigantic sheet and it was hard to distinguish little details. Now times are a changin'.
The clothes are starting to fall off slowly. And what we're starting to see is beginning to paint a picture of a much more evocative and aggressive design.
Though the first-gen R8 seemed to balance a new age look with exotica, it seems that the next-gen car will be more of a leap into the exotic category. If you scope out the images closely you'll note the much larger side intakes, squared off front and rear fenders, a more prominent rear diffuser and squared off exhaust tips. Overall, it looks more brute-ish and less "pretty."
It looks like Audi is starting to embrace more of the Lamborghini attitude of making no apologies for its vehicles' looks.
