What is immediately noticeable by the styling is how similar it is to the current R8. The sideblades that are one of the standout features of the R8 coupe's styling return. Much like the Huracan the new R8 will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Changes to the front and rear lights will be most noticeable as well as the front and rear bumpers with a new diffuser and tailpipe configuration in back.
Expect the second generation R8 to hit showrooms sometime in 2015 as a 2016 model. Also expect turbocharged power for the car down the line.
