2013 Audi R8 Coupe and Spyder  is set to remain of the best cars for generations to come. The new Audi R8 looking refreshingly nicely and the aggressive styling seems to have aged well as R8 celebrates its fifth birthday, quite recently. The all-wheel R8 retains the basic cosmetic goodness and those sculpturally arched surfaces with new details give the high performance an even sharper and more distinctive look.

2013 Audi R8 Coupe Reviewing

2013 Audi R8 Coupe – Exteriors and Interiors

About 4.4 mt in length, it is easy to recognize the Audi R8 dynamic spearhead. One is quick to notice those cosmetic changes such as innovative LED taillights and headlights and that tweaked front fascia and grille are not to be missed. 2013 Audi R8 Coupe and Spyder gets the latest iconic frame grille with beveled corners that add more spunk. One of the most eye-catching new features include large, round tailpipes. Audi R8 V10 diffuser is made of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer. The dynamic turn signals are a worldwide first from Audi. You will find the 4 Audi rings on the hood instead of the grille.

Audi R8 Coupe 2013 – Engine and Performance

You will find that Audi has not messed much with the mid-engine in the 2013 Audi R8. You will find those wonderful V-8 and V-10 engines still very much intact as Audi toys with the inspiration of an R8 V-12 TDI. There were several samples of a completely electric R8 e-tron built. You will find 525-hp, 5.2-liter V-10 and 430-hp, 4.2-liter V-8 engine carrying over for 2013.  The gated 6 speed manual transmission also scurvies in the new Audi R8. However, you will find a new S tronic 7 speed twin clutch auto in the next-gen R8.

You will find a new trim in 2013 Audi R8 Coupe and Spyder known as V10 Plus. With specifically tuned dampers and springs, one can certainly feel the new model much more powerful. The aero and styling updates too have done their bit. Audi R8 goes on sale in Europe, and US later this year. Although Audi hasn’t confirmed yet, but the fans can expect a glimpse of the car in an auto show soon.
