    • 2013 Audi R8 Facelift spotted, spyphotos

      The R8 will get a facelift later this year for the 2013 year model. The changes are small with the LED headlights getting a revision as well as the grille. The rear will be changed to mirror the R8 GT exhaust tips. The rear lights will also be getting a change. The cosmetic updates are fine but the main thing we want to see is for the car to get a dual clutch transmission finally and a horsepower bump on the V8 to match the new RS4 and RS5 with 450 horsepower. The V10 is also expected to get an increase thanks to software changes.

        looks very slightly better. You can see the difference in the rears on the last pic. I never really liked the headlights to begin with. Especially the amber diffuser in them. they look kinda checkered now. It's awkward. I hope that's just tape or something but there's a glare on them.

        The i8 will only be competing price and image wise. As far a driver's car, won't be a comparison. The R8 will be able to do things at a higher level. The i8 will just get nice MPG.

        I personally think the styling is getting a little dated. the car is 7 years old now and really it hasnt changed that much. They must upgrade more new car parts. Thats just my 2 cents.
