The current R8 has a flat bottom wheel too. It makes it easier to get out of the car. No knees hitting the wheel.

The old R8 was arguably one of the best if not the best looking car ever made. But the thing had no soul when you would drive it. For some reason every time I got the chance to drive one it was never exiting. Also the interior was pretty bland for Audi standards.

This new one you can really see the Lamborghini in it and that interior is just plain disgusting (in a good way). Only thing I would change is the use of the R8 stick on emblem on the fuel cap. Looks like an afterthought. Good Job Audi

Updated news just out yesterday:

When Audi announced that the 2016 R8 would arrive in two flavors of V10, everyone surmised that a V8 was coming at some point as well, just like on the previous version of the company-defining supercar. Now the head of Quattro says that won't be the case.

Hollerweger had one other bit of news surrounding the Audi R8, that a V-8 will not be available for the car. It came as a bit of a surprise that the new R8 launched with the V-10 and now we know why. "We have no interest in a V-8," Hollerweger said. He also indicated that the take rate for the eight-cylinder was low and that interest in the "iconic" V-10 far outstripped expectations in the first-gen car.
