2013 Audi R8

The 2013 Audi R8 isn’t much different from the R8s that have been produced for the past five years, but that didn’t stop the Ingolstadt manufacturer from launching a video on its YouTube channel showing the ’13 iteration in action. One thing that is different is the car’s sequential LED turn indicators—see them in action after the jump.


  • Comparison Test: 2010 Audi R8 5.2 V10 FSI Quattro vs. 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia
  • First Drive: 2011 Audi R8 GT
  • Comparison Test: 2013 Audi S6 vs. 2013 BMW M5, 2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG

The new turn indicators aren’t the only new feature on the new R8—although they’re our favorite new cosmetic feature. The front fascia and grille are slightly modified and the headlights have been upgraded to full LED. We also get a brief glimpse of the interior, which looks identical to the 2012 model’s. Even the 2013’s new S tronic automatic transmission looks to retain the same gear selector as the outgoing R tronic’s.

Seeing as how you already can watch us pit the R8 against a number of challengers, we suggest you watch this video for the blinker.
