Description: Giving the Audi R8 a facelift is like Jenny McCarthy getting botox - you don't really need it but it looks good nonetheless. You can definitely overdo it (just Google Lisa Rinna or Dolly Parton),...

I c u guys are trying to be more like top gear with ur analogies n what not.. I like it
Abraham Mendoza May 22, 2012
That's a...weird way of putting it.
Patrick Joseph May 23, 2012
Scott. For the money it's actually a good value. You get good built quality and relatively cheap labour when you take it to the dealership. It's like a budget gallardo. Sort of. And the looks. What the hell it's the first time I hear a complaint.
Scott Westphall May 23, 2012
Thibault - I do appreciate the concern for my eyesight but yes I have seen many in person. Just really don't think the design has any "passion" to it. I will say the drop top version does look better, but for the cash I would never consider this car.
Thibault Leroy May 23, 2012
@Scott you have obviously never seen an R8 in real life or you need glasses. This car looks crazy good!
Jon Wheel May 23, 2012
Whaaat? Who could say this is hideous? I know it's opinion but most opinions are that this is absolutely beautiful.
Lee Oleinick May 22, 2012
Lights are absolutely altered - No brow shown. Drove a 2011 Red 5.2 ragtop with 700 miles last night and all I can say is WOW. The torque is wild and the sound coming from the rear is symphonic. Too bad my wife would notice it is not my S5!
Esam Mohammad May 22, 2012
@scott it looks gorgeous ! And it sold quite well before the facelift, that proves it . And the GTR is beautiful also
Taylor Little May 22, 2012
Lol you fool, this car is not hideous. I love it.
Scott Westphall May 22, 2012
Still hideous. Easily the ugliest "super car" on the market. Even uglier than the GTR. It surprises me since the rest of the Audi line up is gorgeous. They've made stunning cars since the 90s. I think they totally miss the styling mark with the R8
Hank Austin May 22, 2012
If you think the headlights don't have camo you're a fool
Abraham Mendoza May 22, 2012
The center grill is more angled, the head lamps look ok, but the rear is weird for me.
Dainius Kuodis May 22, 2012
They sure do have camo.
Chris Penza May 22, 2012
Looks good, but I'm not a fan of the headlights
Zeus Mocha May 22, 2012
The headlights are camoed -___-
Jack Nicholas Connor May 22, 2012
Let's see what changed... Headlights and nothing else really. Audi is capable of doing more than just new headlights, I think they should do what Porsche did with the 911, make a stripped down, more powerful version
Logan Delony May 22, 2012
Thats how theyll look
Thibault Leroy May 22, 2012
wait do the headlights have camo or is that how they really are?
Matt Piccolo May 22, 2012
Face lift... Not redesign... It's gunna look like the old one
Tin Nguyen May 22, 2012
Don't like the head lights
wfdowns May 22, 2012
it looks almost exatly the same as the old

Lee Oleinick May 22, 2012
Personally, I like the S-tronic over the R-tronic
Jackson Michael May 22, 2012
Well that's awkward
Hank Austin May 22, 2012
Oh really? Then why don't you show us them... Because all of these have camo
Description: The new model, it's safe to say, looks terrific. Feel free to share your thoughts of the 2013 Audi R8 supercar complete with its new facelift in the comments below.

The new taillights is the bet thing about the new R8
Josué Honoriio May 26, 2012
Vitor leite Tbm e fã kk
Abraham Mendoza May 23, 2012
Those are V8 rims on a V10 body. Didn't notice that.
Alex Orozco-Word May 23, 2012
I think I prefer the old model, it's more imposing
Colby Church May 22, 2012
Could've been a little better, not ugly though.
John M Weishahn May 22, 2012
It looks like a Panda. That just ran over a Panda.
Jason Levy May 22, 2012
It looks like it hit some roadkill before the picture was taken. At least wipe the blood scatter away
Nam Doan Trinh May 22, 2012
Did that Audi mow someone Down or something
Joe Fats Harper May 22, 2012
Facelift means some minor changes to small features, 95% of it will look the same
Rick Gunther May 22, 2012
I'm not feeling it. =/
Nick Makaia May 22, 2012
That's one aggressive Audi ...
Maximilian Steiner May 22, 2012
New one, old one, who cares? Such a nice car!
Daniel Bellafonte May 22, 2012
It's not camera blur, but camouflage purposely placed by Audi.
Barry Stewart May 22, 2012
Despite the camera blurr over the head & tail lights it's actually nice to look at.. May not be as impressive as the A6 change, but still nice and once the LED's are revealed I think it will look awesome!
Black Honda May 24, 2012
i am epic sprint with phone samsung....duh boy. not computer keyboard.
Justin Santinelli May 22, 2012
What kind of keyboard do you have? Hehe
Black Honda May 22, 2012
I hated adui R8 coule and too expenstives for me.
Jon Wheel May 23, 2012
I liked the oval exhaust from the V10, but these are better than the V8's exhausts.
Jackson Michael May 22, 2012
Never liked the rear end on these.
Wyatt Clark May 22, 2012
It needs a little something on the back....... Low-profile spoiler or something.
Clint Edwards May 22, 2012
I agree, looks much better than the quad tips
Joe Fats Harper May 22, 2012
Exhaust from the GT?
Dylan Bruder May 22, 2012
That tends to happen when you put tape and camo on them
Braydon Pack May 22, 2012
Both the rear and front lights look lots worse then the original r8
Leonhard Nitzgen May 29, 2012
I Hope that Black part on the taillights is staying
Leonhard Nitzgen May 29, 2012
The white Part on the taillights is camo. the acctual One is Not ging to be Cut Off like that
Jon Wheel May 23, 2012
Well this is based on the Gallardo so...
Tj Sapko May 22, 2012
Tail lights look like a gallardo
Tin Nguyen May 22, 2012
If they can stretch the car a little longer and make the roof a little lower it would look baz azz.
Audi Tech May 22, 2012
I hope they allow the lower fog lamp in the US, the dealership i work for we put one on in the shop. US cars dont have them.
Abraham Mendoza May 22, 2012
Seems like the air vents on the rear window seems different.
grant.c May 22, 2012
like the oval exhaust tips more...
John Serely May 22, 2012
I was just going to say that lol
Aventador700 May 23, 2012
everyone is saying they prefer the black one but look at the exhausts and youll realise its the V8 one and.the white is.the V10 version!!!
Justin Santinelli May 22, 2012
Yeah but its going to be louder with that shape and size!! And the r8 v10 has such a great sound!!
Josh Andrews May 22, 2012
I like the old exhaust , the new one is too big a circular almost too perfect"
Alex Klemstein May 22, 2012
I feel as though the oval tailpipes flow with the shape of the car batter than the circles.
uptown May 22, 2012
black one is better
Steven Whowhat May 22, 2012
black one is a tt, no?
Nick Makaia May 22, 2012
I'll have a black one please! Looks all good to me!
Travis Seaver May 22, 2012
Looks great to me
Majed Ameeri May 22, 2012
Very ugly exhausts
Brady Fereday May 22, 2012
Lol and there's a older one in front of it xD
Jackson Rowden May 22, 2012
It clearly still has camo on the front and rear lights
Thibault Leroy May 22, 2012
dont really like the new head and tail lights
