Audi R8 V8 Limited Edition Celebrates Le Mans Victory

What do carmakers do to celebrate a big, prestigious racing victory? They launch a limited edition model, and this is exactly what Audi has done in honor of its tenth victory in the recent 24-hour Le Mans marathon race, which was won first in 2000 by the R8 sports prototype. The R8 V10 now gets a stunning new titanium-effect paintwork option and enhanced standard equipment.

It will be reserved solely for UK R8 customers, with just 100 examples currently scheduled for production. The model will be priced at £93,935 OTR, with first deliveries scheduled to take place in October.

The R8 V8 Limited Edition will be available to order from July in coupe form, sporting a set of titanium finish 19-inch ‘5-arm double-spoke Y design’ alloy wheels inspired by the R8 GT Coupe, and highlighted by red brake callipers. This will be the main differentiating feature of the exterior of the R8 Limited Edition.

All normally optional metallic and pearl effect paint options will also be included in the Limited Edition price, but for maximum visual drama customers will be able to specify a striking Titanium Metallic paint finish, which will be exclusive to this model.

The Limited Edition model includes satellite navigation, the Audi Music Interface (AMI), an interior light package and a  premium Bang and Olufsen sound system, as well as mobile phone preparation via a Bluetooth interface with integrated seat-belt microphones, all of which don’t come as standard for the regular R8 V8 Coupe.

Inside the R8 V8 Limited Edition, you’ll be greeted by crimson red accents to the sides of its Black Fine Nappa Leather-upholstered seats and headrests, which get red contrast stitching. The theme is carried over with red stitching on the flat bottomed, leather-covered multi-function steering wheel and instrument cowl and by a striking crimson red leather finish.
