Exterior of Audi R8 V10 2016
Being a 2-door supercar, Audi R8 does not lack in aerodynamics. Outside, the 2016 Audi R8 is slightly different from its predecessor, although not much. LED lights are standard, laser lights optional. The 2016 Audi R8 will use the slightly different platform and will probably be a bit wider and longer than the previous R8. As for the chassis, Audi will use an aluminum and carbon fiber monocoque which is going to add some weight, but it will also add sturdiness which supercars desperately need.
Interior of 2016 Audi R8 V10
As far as the interior goes, the 2016 Audi R8 will most likely be a combination of luxury and supercar. It probably will not start any revolutions in this field, but should satisfy even the pickiest of customers. The 2016 Audi R8 will come with all the usual trimmings and a few extras like internet and radar-assisted parking. The 2016 Audi R8, like the previous generation, comes with a standard virtual cockpit which has been refined further.
