Audi is in the process of the lifting of its supercar, the R8 , but the first pictures of the new vehicle does suggest that very minor changes.

Although the model dates back six years ago, the lines are still sharp, which probably explains why Audi has decided to limit the changes to the exterior front and rear lights, which are now equipped with LED, according to new style flagship of the German manufacturer.

 

The interior has aged less well  : Audi will replace many items, while modernizing systems of navigation and entertainment.

Under the hood, the 4.2 liter V8 and the V10 of 5.2 liters will be maintained, but these engines will be modified to provide more power while emitting less CO2. The most notable change is with the gear box: the R Tronic automatic transmission will be replaced by the robotized gearbox to 7-speed S Tronic.

The new Audi R8 will be presented at the upcoming Paris Motor Show , taking place in the French capital in September, its price should exceed € 100,000.
