    Acceleration and test numbers for the new facelifted 2013 R8 V10 Plus from AMS - 1/4 mile in 11.4@126.76

    The R8 received a facelift which you should be ware of unless you were living under a rock. The V10 car gets a minimal power boost to 550 horsepower but it is still basically the same motor with a more aggressive tune. The main change is the dual clutch 7-speed S-tronic transmission. This makes for a nice difference in acceleration as the car is now faster than even the lightweight R8 GT models.

    The 2012 R8 GT is good for an 11.7@123. The standard 2012 5.2 FSI is good for 11.9@121. The new car with the dual clutch transmission is capable of an 11.4@126 according to German publication AMS. A very nice improvement, quite impressive.
