However, previous cars we’d dubbed “Bigfoot” for their widened tracks and extended fenders had a bit of a different look to them than the car that’s turned up this week. This time around, the track appears to be identical to the current R8, though it sports significantly changed lower aero in the form of a body kit with side skirts, and also a really large and extended trunk-mounted spoiler.
