Audi R8 LMS ultra with Facelift

By Johan Laubscher

Facelifted Audi R8
The Audi R8 LMS ultra has been a formidable force in international GT racing. The Audi R8 road car has recently received a facelift which included subtle and tasteful visual updates. The most notable updates include the front and rear lights, as well as some small bodywork changes. Ever since the introduction of the facelift there has been speculation of the possibility of facelift updates for current and new Audi R8 LMS ultra race cars. The new INR8 website even developed a few renders of what a new facelifted Audi R8 LMS ultra could look like, you can see that HERE

Despite all of the speculation a facelifted R8 LMS ultra has emerged. The car is a normal Audi R8 LMS ultra which has been fitted with the new front and rear lights. It may not be a true facelift, but it does give us another glimpse of what a facelifted R8 LMS ultra would look like, and it looks brilliant. The car was at the Audi R8 Facelift Press days held at the Misano Circuit in Italy during October.
