Audi reveals pictures of 2013 R8 range

2013 Audi R8Audi

Not one for letting its models age disgracefully, Audi has released a glut of images of its revised R8 supercar.

High on the list of new modifications is the styling.
2013 V8 and V10-engined R8s feature new front lights which incorporate Audi's new "horse-shoe" LED daytime-running-lights, new rear lamps, a better quality interior, fatter exhausts and a power hike. Most models get a boost to their standard level of equipment too.

2013s R8s also gain a brand new gearbox. For those who wish not to have an R8 with the delightful six-speed manual with its open stainless steel gate, there's the new seven-speed S tronic transmission as an alternative.

It replaces the R tronic automated manual, and allows gears to be changed quicker than ever. A sport mode allows for a more aggressive gear change, and there's traction control fitted too.

V8, V10 Coupe and V10 Spyder models fitted with S tronic also get to 60mph three-tenths of a second quicker compared to models fitted with the old R tronic

There's also a new model – the 548bhp R8 V10 plus coupe – which is lighter, quicker and harder, while all models get a power hike.

Power outputs for R8s fitted with 4.2-litre V8 are 428bhp and 523bhp for the V10 models.
2013 R8s are available to order now with delivery beginning early next year.

Enjoy the pictures...
