Unlike the last R8, this one is much less revolution and much more evolution. It has Audi's new corporate grille and the new LED patterns. The full side blades appear to be smaller and it has a definite link to the TT in its styling.
As we already knew, the new R8 will come with a V10 in 540 or 610 horsepower form, with no V8 option to start. We'll know more when we see the R8 for real in the next few days.
