So what started as an exclusive model in the popular Gran Turismo video games series, has now become a full scale, functional hyper car. Featuring a quattro all wheel drive system and three electronic motors, this new model has a power output of 804hp. It can accelerate from 0-60 in less than 2.5 seconds and weighs in at a low 1,450kg. The one off model took 11 months to build and it will be used as a shuttle for customers and guests at all European Formula E races.

The R8 is dying for something high performing sort of like what Lamborghini, Ferrari and other brands have done. The R8 has been quite stagnant. If they can offer something to the effect of a Performate with EV tech, that could mean a lot to consumers and their bottom line.

I don't think they'll be replacing the R8 with something above it, but more likely a model below it. There have been long standing rumours of an R6, and properly equipped it could suit the needs of driving enthusiasts. I did hear they will be launching an exclusive RWD variant of the R8, that shaves $25k off the price.
