Freshen 2019

The second-generation R8 has been freshened for the 2019 model year. The biggest visual change comes with the front fascia, which has been completely redesigned, adopting a wider appearance along with a series of vertical wings extending to the front spoiler, in addition to a narrow three-sectioned inlet just above the hexagonal grille meant to evoke the fascia of Audiís early Quattro cars. Power has been increased in the naturally aspirated V10 that will now churn out an estimated 562 hp and 406 pound-feet of torque, a gain of about 30 hp and 8 pound-feet of torque over the outgoing model. The refreshed R8 will go on sale in Europe in the first quarter of 2019
