Ooh it also has the LED headlights
What we have here is just another Audi R8 taking laps around the Nürburgring, except there's something different about this one. Notice the two slats in the lower grills compared to the current R8's three. And the side intakes seem to be a little deeper than the current R8's.
Does this mean that this is the V10 R8? Because this car looks to be almost production-ready, which means we may see it soon, and it may not go the way of the V12 TDI.

I have mixed feelings about the R8s. The standard R8 is a stunning car to look at, but the performance numbers aren't flooring, and the petrol motor doesn't do Audi's race-proven diesel tech know-how justice. The V-12 TDI has a lot to admire--solid numbers with the mileage of a V-6 Camry. But the performance numbers there aren't impressive enough to justify the project $400,000-$500,000 price tag. The numbers printed in Winding Road were well behind the likes of lower-end exotics like the Corvette Z06 and 997 GT3.

Judgine by the chrome strips on the grille, I'm going to hazard a guess and say this'll be called R8S.
Edit: But I still want a V12 TDI

I like it. What V10 are they going to use? Gallardo? S6? RS6? Something all new?

the side inlets don't appear wider/deeper/longer/anything-er....I think that is just black paint w/shadow playing tricks on our eyes

That was one styling aspect of the V12 TDI that I absolutely loved. I'm glad they kept it for the V10. It really breaks up that back section better.
