A close rival of Porsche Boxster, Nissan 370Z, Maserati GranCabrio, Mercedes Benz SLK-Class and Porsche 911, the R8 has been stepped up in looks as well as features to make it a perfect car in the segment. Not many changes are there on the new R8 and are subtle rather than explicit. However, a new bumper, grille and a new pair of tail pipes is not all that on the new R8 as the main change is under the hood.
