The new R8 is also 10 percent more fuel efficient than the outgoing model thanks to an all-new Space Frame which has reduced its weight by 50 kg. With increased use of aluminium and carbon fiber reinforced plastics, not only does the new R8 weigh less, but it is also 40 percent more torsionally rigid.
