The 2013 Audi R8 V10 Plus is available only as a coupe. The car develops 550hp and a peak torque of 540Nm at 6,500rpm. With the S tronic gearbox, the 2013 Audi R8 V10 plus rockets from 0 to 100kph in 3.5 seconds and achieves a top speed of 317kph. With the manual transmission, the supercar manages a 100kph in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 319kph.
On the exterior, the headlights are slightly different than the previous model, and so is the grille and the front bumper. The grille is painted black instead of chrome and has sharper edges. There are new LED headlamps and tail lights which are also slightly different. There is a restyled diffuser and new exhaust tips. Interior trim levels are also refreshed. Even the R8 logo has been redesigned.
However, the main change according to AutoMiddleEast.com is the inclusion of the new seven-speed S tronic dual clutch transmission which replaces the six-speed automated manual R tronic, making the 2013 Audi R8 V10 Plus tad bit faster to 100kph from standing start.
