Updates for 2015 are limited to a new optional sport exhaust on the V10 S Tronic and standard power-folding side mirrors. An available Alcantara headliner with diamond stitching and Laser Red-painted brake calipers round out the more extravagant options.
Updates for 2014 include refreshed front and rear fascias, standard LED headlights, a new dual-clutch transmission replacing the clunky old automatic and the addition of a range-topping V10 Plus model that boasts a 25 horsepower bump versus the standard V10 for a total of 550.
About Audi R8
While exotic Italians like Ferrari and Lamborghini have become the pinup cars of teenagers everywhere, the 2015 Audi R8 is the supercar adults crave. Offered as a coupe or convertible, Audi's sleek R8 sports car pampers its occupants with cutting-edge technology, fine fitted leather and Alcantara trim and a handsome dash replete with every gauge, meter and warning light a driving enthusiast could ask for. The R8 coupe – and its topless twin the 2015 R8 Spyder – is powered by either a robust 4.2-liter V8 or a raucous Lamborghini-sourced V10 that is mounted behind the front seats and powering all four wheels. While the V8 is powerful, it's the V10 that allows the R8 to challenge cars like the Porsche 911 Turbo.
