    Officially ugly. Wow. What’s with the exhaust trim?

    That’s the particulate filter for the models destined for the EU.  Audi engineers couldn’t find enough room for them side the car.

    Yep...unbelievable. Smiley They destroyed the clean line of the R8, I hope they don't do the same with the Huracan. 

    The facelifted R8 actually looks now a little bit like the TT from the front. Smiley

    I know that such a car needs to be seen live but even live, it doesn't look much better. Also, now the car seems to be color sensitive.

    Concur.  Audi under Lichte has made it a habit to highlight design changes when the model is introduced.  Most roadgoing versions are more subtle.

    indecision Have to agree with 4trac, yes now I have a classic too. But anyhow since my R8 is not a lease it is/was always a classic once i bought it! Or perhaps since this facelift, is lets but nicely, a bit akward the pre-face lift cars go up in value. (hahaha smiley)

    Nope, sound is not the same. The sound in the video is "fake". 😟

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2016 model) - Review (updated Feb 13th 2017)

    So, exhaust sound in the studio where they recorded new R8 Performance is fake?

    KresoF1:

    This was the sound INSIDE, even our Evoque sounds nice inside a closed room. Smiley

    The new R8 doesn't sound that good outside (track video), they used the sound from inside the car, which is apparently a bit generated by some kind of sound symposer.

    There is also a reason why the exhaust pipes look that weird, there was no room for the particulate filter, so... Smiley

    Also, no more exhaust button, sound only changes with specific driving program.

    It looks very different I'm afraid but I don't like it. Only in black and with carbon/black side blades, the cars look similar.

    I can lease the new one, what's your point? Smiley I don't want it. Maybe the Spyder Performance would be interesting in a couple of years but I still have my eyes on the Performante. Smiley

    Too much of the honeycomb pattern plastic on this newer R8. Front, rear inside the side intakes.

    Can't Audi realize that this finish cheapens a €160.000+ car?
