The new 2014 Audi R8 is officially on sale as of April 11th, 2013. The new supercar starts at 114.900 dollars in the US.

The new Audi R8 has been further optimized thanks to numerous improvements, including an available new seven-speed S tronic transmission that improves the 0-60 mph time by 0.3 seconds on the R8 V10 Plus. The new S tronic transmission also significantly improves comfort through smoother gear shifts and greater efficiency. New full-LED headlamp design continues to give the R8 individuality.

At the top of the range is the new R8 V10 Plus Coupe with 550 horsepower and 398 lb.-ft. of torque. Equipped with the available S tronic, it catapults from zero to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 196 mph. It weighs approximately 130 lbs. less than the R8 V10 due to ceramic brakes, carbon fiber side blades, front splitter, rear diffuser, and spoiler; a smaller fuel tank; manual Alcantara seats and reduced sound insulation in the engine bay.

The interior receives beautiful diamond-stitch leather seats as well as an available flat-bottom multi-function steering wheel among other improvements.

The new 2014 R8 V8 starts at 114.900 dollars in the US, for the coupe variant with manual transmission. As for the V10, the prices starts at 151.000 dollars for the coupe and manual transmission.
