Local car owners’ favourite Audi R8 just launched the upgraded version not so long ago, and now fans can look forward to another new, limited edition ‘selection 24h’. Paying homage to Audi R8 LMS that took part and championed in the 24 Hours Nürburgring on its debut last year, the limited model is based on the brand’s quickest and most powerful production Audi R8 Coupe V10 plus. Its 5.2-litre V10 mid-engine generates 610 hp and accelerates the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds before hitting the top speed at 330 km/h.
Appearance-wise, the ‘selection 24h’ has a tricolor paint finish consisting of grey as the basic color, with black and red highlights that evoke the Audi R8 LMS. Bodyworks such as the front spoiler, the exterior mirror housings, the engine compartment cover, the rear wing and the diffuser are made from gloss-finish carbon fibre. A special matt-finish ‘R8 24h’ logo is applied on the gloss-finish sideblades as a highlight. The serial numbers 1 to 24 for each of the limited-edition car can be found on the illuminated door sill trims. Interestingly the entry lights on the doors can project the Audi R8 logo onto the road surface. This exclusive feature will go further in the future and owners can personalise their car with different lettering and logos. Orders can be placed now for the 24-unit limited edition and it costs 229,000 Euros in Germany.
