Especially with regard to the Audi R8 sports car (internal type designation 42) that was the case. While we will have a tuned R2015 Gen8 at least once a week until 1. reported, that changed with the appearance of the new generation of Type 4S abruptly. Since then, the "old R8" has been quiet.

The R8 went into production in the summer of 2006 based on the Lamborghini Gallardo and shared a large number of components with the Italian. And this bespoke copy from 2009 is something very special.
