We first caught the next-generation Audi R8 prototype testing back in March, however, we managed to get a glimpse of a prototype that we expect is a final edition to mark the end of this generation.

Possible Final Edition Audi R8 Spied With New Aero Packaging

This latest prototype features the same grille openings and wheels that we see on the current V10 Plus model, but new winglets, air splitters, and other additions to boost the aerodynamics of the model help separate it from the current-gen models. Added to that, this prototype features more elaborate rocker panels on its sides, a large scoop in the hood that is reminiscent of the R8 LMS Ultra GT3 race car, as is a large air diffuser, adjustable wing, and large air channels under each exhaust tip.

In terms of power, we've heard rumors that the newest Audi R8 could feature smaller turbocharged engines, but you can likely expect this model to get a variant of the current 5.2-liter V-10.

Regardless of what we may find under the hood, , this farewell model undoubtedly looks quick, and performance is improved from the current lV10 Plus, it will be an appropriate send-off for the model. The next-gen 2016 Audi R8 will most likely be unveiled during next year's Geneva Motor Show, so expect whatever this is to debut sometime before that.
