Audi R8 facelift due in Summer 2012

According to CAR, Audi will use the Summer of 2012 to launch its facelifted R8 supercar. While visual updates remain minor, mechanicals updates will be substantial.

The 5.2 litre V10 unit will be revised to punch-out 533bhp (540PS/397kW), up from the current 518bhp (525PS/386kW), with the entry-level V8 now set to produce 444bhp (450PS/331kW). The former will be married to a newly-developed 7-speed dual-clutch S-tronic gearbox, replacing the jerky robotised R-tronic automatic.

Ingolstadt executives confirmed there will be GT and GT Spyder variants offered again.
