Evolution of the Audi R8 LMS ultra

By Johan Laubscher

New rear section
The Audi Sport Finale was held last night. At the event evening Audi Sport announced their plans for 2013. Among their plans a new evolution version of the Audi R8 LMS ultra was revealed. A single CAD drawing of the newly up-dated vehicle was published, and it looks brilliant. The changes are many confined to the rear which includes a new rear wing, rear diffuser and a centralised exhaust outlet. The new rear wing utilises the “swan-neck design”.

The CAD drawing also depicts the new R8 LMS ultra with the new facelifted rear lights. This may be an indication that the new evolution version of the R8 LMS ultra will indeed have the facelifted appearance of the new road car versions. However confirmation of this will have to wait until the first cars are seen and delivered in early 2013. But one thing is for certain, we cannot wait to see the new car out on track.
