Though we know that Audi's latest design philosophy will influence the next generation R8, there lacks an insight on how it's final design might look like. Based on the prototypes that have been spotted numerous times, Dutch car designer Marco Van Overbeeke has come with a render that gives us a possible look at the next generation R8.
