The 2016 Audi R8 price is expected less than 120k dollars. This car will be launched somewhere in this year based on its model year 2016. The price itself is equal with what the Audi’s offers for the new R8. Most of them it is overpriced. But, I think they are not truly now the features of R8 firstly. The R8 has its second generation with its release date. Lamborghini Huracan is the main rival for this car. Audi promises mid-engine platform to defeat Huracan.

They likely want to show that they are in the correct path. Perhaps, the old criticism will be appeared once again following the car debut in this year.
