LEAKED: All-New Audi R8 Is Out Of The Bag Before 2015 Geneva Motor Show

Woops. Here’s another secret that’s been let out of the bag before its big debut at the coming Geneva Motor Show: the all-new Audi R8. Spotted on Spanish motoring website Motor Pasion, the image you see above has spread across the web rather quickly.

Audi hasn’t yet responded or reacted to the leak (manufacturers sometimes do by releasing a full gallery of the car after it’s been leaked out), so for now, it’s just the one image for your viewing.

Recapping what we already know, the German supercar will ride on the same architecture as its Italian cousin, the Lamborghini Huracan, and will feature two versions: an R8 V10 with 540hp, and a more potent R8 V10 Plus with 610hp – no more V8s it seems, only 5.2-litre V10s here.

Included in the dismissals is an option of a manual transmission, with the four-ringed manufacturer only offering a seven-speed S-Tronic dual-clutch gearbox.

On towards the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, then.
