It’s almost hard to believe that the Audi R8 has been on the market for five years in its current design when so few vehicles seem current past three or four years.

To celebrate its fifth birthday, the German automaker made a video showing off the R8 and all of its variants. To keep things interesting, they teased (ever so slightly) the new R8 at the end of the video. It seems like the refreshed model will be far from a total revision based on the dark shape we saw.

Chances are good that we will see a typical model-cycle refresh with some design changes and an increase in performance. Still, there are rumors that bigger changes will come for the R8 in 2015.

No matter what, the refreshed model is supposed to be released later this year. There are sure to be more details in the future, available here.

Check out the video celebrating five years of the Audi R8 below.
