The Audi R8 was first launched back in 2007 and even though it has remained successful throughout its many years on the market, Audi has just released an update for the entire R8 line-up before its new generation is debuted in 2015. The new R8 will go on sale at the end of 2012, with prices starting from 113,500 euro ($137,200 at the current exchange rates) for the R8 V8 coupe and from 124,800 euro ($150,800 at the current rates) for the R8 V8 Spyder.
The biggest change for the new Audi R8 V8 has been made under the hood where the 4.2 FSI engine delivers a total of 430 HP at 7,900 rpm, with a torque of 317.15 lb-ft between 4,500 and 6,000 rpm. The updated R8 models have also received a new 7-speed S tronic – optional on the V8.
Exterior updates are minimal and include a new front bumper and single-frame grille.
