Audi R8 Limited Edition

Audi has launched a special-edition R8 to celebrate the make's 10th victory in the Le Mans 24hr race this year.

The R8 V8 Limited Edition is a UK-only model that's based on the V8 Coupe.

On the outside, there are 'titanium finish' 19-inch alloys and red brake calipers. All the standard paintwork finishes are available, but the Limited Edition is also exclusively available with a new titanium-effect paintwork option. A Carbon Package that includes carbonfibre trim for the sideblades, door mirror and door sill trim - is also available as an option.

Interior upgrades include bespoke leather trim with red inserts, red contrast stitching for the seats, steering wheel and instrument cowl. There are also red surrounds for the floor mats and illuminated door sill trim.

The standard 424bhp V8 engine is retained, but the Limited Edition comes with Audis magnetic ride adaptive suspension system normally a 1380 option.

Additional equipment over the standard car includes satellite-navigation, upgraded Bang and Olufsen stereo, and Bluetooth.

The R8 V8 Limited Edition is on sale now for 93,935, a 6000 premium over the standard car. Just 100 will be built.
