The handsome Audi R8 is expected to undergo a facelift and might be unveiled either at Moscow in August or Paris a month later.
Looking at spy shots, the visual changes seem minimal. Expect full LED headlights, perhaps in a more striking design, a slightly revised front grille as well as new designed taillights which seem to have lost its distinctive quad, square-shaped outline and exhaust pipes from the R8GT replacing quad exhausts on the normal R8.
Engine will be retained by the existing V8 and V10 units, however, expect an increase in performance. The 4.2-liter V8 engine will produce 444hp while the 5.2-liter V10 will 533hp. The R-Tronic transmission system might replace the seven-speed S-tronic.
What do you expect/want to see on the refreshed R8? Can Audi still retain the sex appeal of the first model?
