Audi Celebrates Tenth Le Mans Win With R8 V8 Limited Edition

Audi R8 V8 Limited Edition

Audi R8 V8 Limited EditionAudi has chosen to celebrate its tenth win at the grueling Le Mans 24 hour endurance race with a  limited edition version of its R8 V8 sports car.

Just 100 examples of the car will be produced, all for the UK market.  Titanium finish 19-inch ‘5-arm double-spoke Y design’ alloy wheels inspired by the range topping R8 GT Coupe, and embellished by red brake callipers, will be the key differentiating feature of the exterior of the R8 Limited Edition as standard.  But all normally optional metallic and pearl effect paint options will also be included in the Limited Edition price.  However, we expect many owners will go for maximum visual drama by specifying a striking Titanium Metallic paint finish, which will be exclusive to this model, at extra cost.

The Limited Edition also comes with lots of extra kit as standard, including Audi magnetic ride adaptive suspension, satellite navigation, the Audi Music Interface (AMI), an interior light package, a premium Bang and Olufsen sound system, mobile phone preparation via a Bluetooth interface with integrated seat-belt microphones and crimson red trim detailing on the black Nappa leather.

Beyond all the chintz the standard R8 V8 mechanicals do service, its 4.2 litre V8 FSI petrol engine reaching 430PS.  This motors the beast from 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds before running out of puff at 187mph.

Price is £93,935 on the road and the order book opens in July.
