An excellent shot of the '01 R8's nose diffuser, shot at Mosport 2001.  It is changed somewhat from '00.  There appears to be more kick-up to the outer diffuser sections next to the wheels.  Also, the strake in the outer section has moved closer to the front wheel and its orientation is more parallel with the car.  Note the lower A-arms are running in the diffuser area.
Note the center diffuser strake leading edges are angled inboard towards centerline as on the 2000 car.
