When backing into a parking space, it performs all the necessary steering movements; it can handle both parallel parking and parking perpendicular to the street.

Weighing in at under 3300-pounds, the 2015 Audi R8 will pack "a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and the monocoque will be a lighter, aluminum and carbon affair." Pricing and availability have not yet been announced. Click here for more pictures. In similar news, continue reading for a review of the 2012 Audi R8 GT.

The evolution or disappearance of the sideblades on the "clean-sheet design" also wasn't broached, but the trademark signifiers don't appear in Autocar's rendering.

The 2012 Audi R8 GT Spyder made its official debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this past weekend, and unfortunately, it's limited to just 333-units worldwide. This model "brings the scorching-hot 5.2-liter V10 - good for 560 hp, a 0-62 time of 3.8 seconds, and a top speed of 197 mph - to open-air driving, along with an automated six-speed R tronic transmission, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, and, of course, Bluetooth." Video after the break. Click here for the first picture in gallery.

That exclusivity will surely carry a hefty price tag, and while pricing has yet to be announced for the U.S. market (its 207,800 Euro tag in Germany translates to over $300,000), and we expect it to carry a premium over the coupe's $198,000 MSRP.

DailyMail provides us with a rare look inside Ferrari's Maranello factory, "a medium-sized manufacturing concern with around 3,000 workers; its inputs are the same as countless other factories: steel, aluminium, rubber, glass and plastic." Videos after the break. Click here for more pictures.

The bodies are made in Ferrari's Scaglietti coach-building plant in nearby Modena and then trucked to Maranello. Ferraris are still handbuilt. There are plenty of robots in the Nuova Meccanica to mill and drill the solid aluminium, but there's only one robot used on the assembly line; it fits the windscreen.

The car's designer gleefully lifted the best design cues from both the R8 and most any modern Ferrari, mashing them together to create this Chinese love fusion.
