Along with the sick video above, which highlights that seven-speed S tronic auto-box and the sweet, sweet note of the 2014 R8 V10, Audi also unveiled two new R8-related items that may get fans of the supercar excited.
First up is the all-new "Audi Library" iPad app. This app allows you to configure a 2014 Audi R8 to your liking — or any Audi for that matter. Want a "Brilliant Red" R8 V10 with the S tronic transmission, "Lunar Silver" fine Nappa leather seating and an Alcantara headliner? The app can build it for you and get you a price. It also gives you access to tons of dynamic Audi content. You can download the app here.
Secondly, Audi has also announced that the #WantAnR8 program will return in October 2013. This contest calls on fans to add #WantAnR8 to a Twitter post. With this post, you are then entered in a drawing to have a day-long date with the 2014 R8, either in your hometown or on a racetrack. Sure, Audi isn’t handing you an R8 to keep, but a day with it is more than most of us would ever get a chance at.
Looks like Audi is pushing the new R8 pretty hard this year, so enjoy the extra goodies, folks.

For 2014, the R8 V10 received a mild facelift that included a revised Singleframe grille, restyled air intake vents and redesigned front apron. Around back, the taillights are dynamic, giving the model a more upscale look.
Nestled behind the seats is a monster of a 5.2-liter, V-10 powerplant that pumps out 525 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque. This allows the R8 V10 to hit 60 mph in 3.7 seconds with a six-speed manual and 3.3 seconds with the seven-speed S tronic transmission.
