2013 Audi R8 facelift spotted doing final testing on the Ring - V8 and V10 getting power boost, DSG coming?
As previously reported the Audi R8 is getting a facelift for the next model year. The V8 model in particular is going to benefit with a power boost up to the 450 horsepower range. The V8 R8 is lagging behind competition such as the Carrera S performance wise which interestingly enough seems to be the model targeted as a 991 Carrera S was spotted testing with the updated R8. The V10 will be bumped up somewhere to Gallardo LP560 specs which requires only a software change. The main question remains if the cars will get dual clutch transmission (DSG) options.
The exterior will also get minor tweaks with revised lights. The official reveal to be in September in Paris.
