Here’s the first ever on the road spyshots of the Audi R8 supercar which was previously known as the Audi Le Mans concept. The Audi R8 is said to be based on the Lamborghini Gallardo and will come in a normally aspirated V8 making 400 horsepower. as well as a twin turbocharged V10 engine making nearly 600 horsepower. Sure looks like a sexy machine. More spy shots after the jump.

I love the body profile, very sleek, and looks more refined and luxurious than the all-out angular aggresive looks of the Gallardo.

Check out the huge disc brakes! The Audi TT’s big brother sure looks good.
