Audi has apparently released a new photo that previews the front end design of the 2013 R8.

As you can see, the mock up has larger air intakes, futuristic LED headlights and a revised grille which echoes the 2012 A5 and A6.

According to previous reports, the facelifted model will be launched next year with a 450 PS (331 kW / 444 hp) 4.2-liter V8 and a 540 PS (397 kW / 533 hp) 5.2-liter V10. Additionally, a seven-speed S-tronic transmission could replace the current R-tronic gearbox.
