The next-generation Audi R8 will be revealed next month at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and the German manufacturer started today teasing its upcoming supercar. Audi also revealed the fact that its new mid-engined sports car will feature high-tech LED headlights, which can be supplemented as an option, by a laser high beam lightning module.
Laser headlights use high-intensity laser diodes and the beams attain almost twice the lightning range when compared with LED headlights. Laser headlights will be easily recognizable thanks to their intense blue light signature. As standard, Audi will offer the LED headlight system, which use 37 LEDs per headlight.
Moreover, the next-generation Audi R8 promises to set new standards and according to the latest rumors, the new supercar will be available only with an upgraded version of the 5.2-liter V10 engine producing around 580 hp.
Still, Audi will offer at a later date a smaller turbocharged petrol engine. An e-tron version is also planned and will go on sale in about two years, powered by a V6 or a four-cylinder turbocharged engine, paired with an electric motor.
