The refreshed R8 is available in a coupe and spyder form and comes with a long list of mechanical and cosmetic changes.

Up front, there's the new chamfered, hexagonal Audi grille and the all-new LED headlights which are now standard across the R8 range. The turn-signals get new dynamic rhythm effect; they are now controlled by a special unit that transforms the daytime running lamps into turn signals. The front bumper also gets styling tweaks and the front air-intakes get three crossbars. The most distinctive visual change is at the rear, with striking new all-LED tail-lights and turn indicators that 'swipe' outwards when activated. The new R8 comes with 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels depending on the model.

Engine offerings include a 4.2-litre V8 and a Lamborghini-sourced 5.2-litre V10 which makes 518bhp and 54kgm. The updated R8 gets a new seven-speed gearbox and its 0-100kph sprint is claimed to be quicker than the earlier car's. Audi also says the new gearbox helps the R8 post better fuel-economy figures.

Prices for the 2013 Audi R8 start at 1.34 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the V8 variant.
