Audi has revealed that the next-generation R8 will adopt electrification, but has yet to decide exactly what type of powertrain it will use. During a recent event in Europe, Audi Sport managing director Oliver Hoffman told Motoring that the German company has a number of interesting concepts for the next R8 in the works and confirmed the supercar won�t be powered solely by an internal combustion engine.
The R8 has been the halo supercar for the German car manufacturer ever since it was introduced back in 2006. The second-generation model was launched in 2015, and while the basic design of the car hasn�t changed dramatically, ii doesn�t look dated at all. With this in mind, Hoffman revealed that Audi Sport has plans to continue updating the current R8 range with new and exciting models before a successor is launched in a few years� time, perhaps in 2023.
