In 2014 you can expect the R8 to be replaced by the second generation German supercar. According to our sources, the side blades and the manual transmission will be removed and a single multi-functional color monitor will be visible between the speedometer and the rev counter. Not to mention the fact that tech will be running throughout the entire car. A head display will be visible as well as re designed lights.
