Hardcore Audi R8 Caught Testing on Nurburgring
As we’ve already seen Audi’s 2013 R8 get a nip here and a tuck there, it seems like the German group is all set to send of their first generation sports car in a blaze of glory with some special editions like Lexus before them with the LFA. Although no details have officially been confirmed, some reports suggest that this in-between R8 caught running around the 'ring could come in the form of a street legal GT3 special edition to mark the end of the first generation, or even a test mule of the even more new, not yet released third-generation.
Recently spotted testing around the Nurburgring, this Audi R8 was coated in a two-tone blue and black paint scheme, came with a revised front splitter and new aerodynamics, and of course, was supported by a rear wing that goes on for days.
So while Audi is tight lipped on the whole project, we should gain some more knowledge as more photos emerge.
