The 2013 V8 Supercar season (known officially as the International V8 Supercars Championship) is a FIA-sanctioned motor racing series for V8 Supercars.

The 2013 season is the fifteenth running of the V8 Supercars Championship and the seventeenth in which they have contested the Australian Touring Car Championship title.

The season begins with the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide on March 2nd, and finishes at the Homebush Street Circuit in Sydney on 8th December.

The calendar has expanded in 2013, with the addition of a race at the new Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. The Car of The Future program has been introduced, which also brought Nissan and Mercedes models into the series with three Mercedes AMG E63s being run by Erebus Motorsport and four Nissan Altimas being run by Kelly Racing. Holden has also introduced the VF Commodore to replace the older VE model

Jamie Whincup started the season as the defending driver's champion with Triple Eight Race Engineering as the defending team's champion.
