The Audi R8 is an icon for Volkswagen but it looks like it will join the Volkswagen Beetle in retirement as it was reported that the model we see now could be the last Audi R8 from Audi.
According to Car and Driver, there are currently no plans for an Audi R8 replacement. This was after they talked to Peter Mertens, Audi’s R&d Boss at Geneva. Of course, this is not a confirmation that it will be killed off at the end of the production but that is what most people believe will happen to the Audi R8.
The Audi R8 has been around for a long time now and it has done its ob to draw the attention away from rivals like the McLaren and Lamborghini. As of now, there is still a few more years ago before the production for this model stops so it will still be around.
Maybe Audi will eventually come out with a new plan for an Audi R8 replacement. Keep those fingers crossed.
