Audi R8 GT: Fresh spy shots of the facelift

Audi R8 GT

Nice new spy shots of the facelifted Audi R8 GT. Enjoy!

Like the previous R8 GT, this new model will likely hit the gym, dropping some weight and packing more punch, but while that’s all speculative, we do see that better handling is definitely in the cards. Aside from the aero-improving chin spoiler, fascia winglets and fixed rear wing, this R8 also has upgraded brakes with bigger calipers and what appear to be cross-drilled ceramic rotors. We hear output could be increased from the current 560 horsepower up closer to the 600-hp range, and laid to the pavement via Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. It also very likely that Audi will keep production numbers for a 2014 R8 GT rather low, with the outgoing model limited to just 333 units globally.
