facelifts are facelifts. Exterior is different, and likely interior, suspension, engine management, etc.

If you didn't mark a different page for it, then the Mclaren 650S would be still an extension of the 12C.

Why does this page exist? Just because it's a facelift doesn't mean it needs to be added. There's already this page which includes the same kind of power, transmission, performance and power-to-weight ratio...

Well, I know there is a 10 hp difference, but I feel this shouldn't be added still, as most of the performance figures are exactly the same.

With the 2012 facelift the power remained the same. Audi changed the 6 speed R Tronic to the 7 speed S Tronic. That's why the 0-100 km/h get better.

Look at the first comment. How could I add a 2012 car with detailed technichal specification in 2010?
The base R8 became 430 PS in mid 2010.

430PS R8 was announced in 2012 with the facelift. So this car should be named "2012 R8 430PS", which means, "2010 R8 430PS" didn't even exist.

This is the 2010 Audi R8 4.2. It has 10 more PS, the kerb weight (which includes 68 kg driver and 7 kg luggage) is 1635 kg so the weight without the "driver" and "luggage" is 1560 kg.
