Audi has released a new video which teases the 2013 R8. It will be introduced something later this year.

Audi is celebrating the 5th anniversary of the R8 by teasing the facelifted 2013 model.

While we only get to see a glimpse of the car, it will likely feature revised bumpers and restyled lighting units.

Under the hood, the 4.2-liter V8 engine will reportedly be upgraded to produce 450 PS (331 kW / 444 hp). Likewise, the 5.2-liter V10 is expected to be bumped up to 540 PS (397 kW / 533 hp). Rumors have also suggested the R-tronic transmission could be replaced by a seven-speed S-tronic gearbox.

The 2013 Audi R8 will be unveiled later this year, so stay tuned for additional information.
