Audi has just unveiled the new rear-wheel-drive R8 for the 2022 model year, which delivers a familiar level of sex appeal along with a boost in power via the naturally-aspirated, 5.2-liter V10 engine: 532 hp jumps to 562 hp while the torque levels up from 398 lb-ft to 406 lb-ft.

In addition to the boost in oomph, the German automaker is also introducing a new Sport Exhaust Package featuring a four-button steering wheel with a Performance driving mode and — as the name suggests — a fresh sport exhaust system with black tips. They will also offer up a new Dynamic package, which adds ceramic brakes and leather racing seats.
