An image allegedly depicting the second generation Audi R8 has hit the web ahead of an official reveal scheduled for next month.

The revealing pic was uploaded by Instagram user “dreboog” who says he received the image from an Audi insider. However, we don’t know for sure if this is indeed the new R8 as it could simply be a body kit. If you will notice there’s a considerable amount of gap between the front bumper and the right wing while the wheels are missing.

We analyzed the attached pic and compared it to a spy shot and noticed the hood’s cutaway is identical as well as the shape of the headlights (including the position of the LED daytime running lights).

What do you think? Is it legit or just a replica?
