Are you the new 2016 Audi R8?

Instagram user dreboog recently posted this picture of what certainly could be the new 2016 Audi R8.

The 2016 Audi R8 is scheduled to be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show in Switzerland but perhaps the cat, or is it car, is out o f the bag. The styling certainly looks like the current design language that Audi is adopting. Take a close look at this video which features the recent LA Auto Show debut of the Audi Prologue Concept car. What’s important is that the Audi Prologue Concept car features the German brand’s new design language.

If you look closely at the leaked Instagram image, it is pretty obvious that the shape of the grill of what could be the new 2016 Audi R8 image (above) is almost identical to the Audi Prologue Concept Car.

As you probably know the current Audi R8 features a reworked version of the Lamborghini V10 engine. In the Audi the V10 produces 525 HP. The new 2016 Audi R8 will most produce more power. The 2015 Lamborghini Huracan produces 602 HP and we could except that the Audi will match and perhaps even exceed this number.

So is the 2016 Audi R8? We don’t know for sure, but we’re betting that the folks at Audi’s headquarters in Ingolstadt are trying to figure out how an image of a car that looks remarkably like the 2016 Audi R8 got onto Instagram.
