Just like all of the other models in Audi’s line-up, the R8 is also about to receive a facelift version to revitalize the line. The new model is set to make its world debut in September at the 2012 Paris Auto Show, but it was recently caught testing around the famous Nurburgring race track.
The Audi R8 will feature redesigned front and rear bumpers and revised grille and headlamps, plus new taillights with repositioned LEDs. Audi also promised that important changes will be made under the hood: the 5.2 liter V10 engine will be tuned to deliver 533 HP, up from today’s 518 HP, and will be combined with a new seven-speed dual clutch S-tronic gearbox.
