Not one to listen to the addage, "Don't mess with a good thing," Audi revealed shots and details of its latest 2013 R8 and it's safe to say that the two-seat sports car looks fresher than ever. Among the changes in this line-up include subtle body style changes, a seven-speed S-tronic transmission, and the addition of a new flagship V10 Plus model. Probably the first thing Audi fans will notice is the redesign of the LED headlamps and taillights and a revision of the car's front bumper and grille and its larger rear diffuser and circular tailpipes. Although a six-speed manual is still offered, the 2013 also introduces Audi's new seven-speed S-tronic transmission, which uses two multi-plate clutches to create silky smooth shifts as each clutch alternates to use its own independent sub-transmission to select gears. Buyers in Europe can expect to see the new R8 line in showrooms by the end of the year, but details surrounding its U.S. launch or its price haven't been released. via: CarScoop
