Audi just made an official statement that they are going to built a new Audi sports car called the R8. This car will be heavily based on the Audi Concept car "Le Mans" that was first presented to the public in 2003. Audi R8 I hope Audi goes the same route with this car as they did with the TT back in the day. When the TT first debut Audi only made minor changes before the car went into production. Unfortunately the article does not go into any detail about drive train or chassis configuration.
