Here are latest photos taken just yesterday in the United States capturing Audi’s upcoming new super sports car R8 in full showroom trim during the shooting of a commercial. Here the car can be seen for the first time clearly from all angles while speeding up and down a mountain pass for the film crew.

Overall design is nearly unchanged from the dramatic LeMans Quattro concept car which Audi had on display at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show. Audi’s management had then decided to go ahead with a production version in order to give Audi a high-performance sports car to compete with the Porsche 911

The new sports car will not be called the LeMans, a name already used by Pontiac many years ago, but instead will stick with Audi’s typical alpha-numeric names and will be the R8. It is expected to go into production late this year, and will be launched in early 2007.
