The German based automaker Audi has recently announced that a special edition of its R8 supercar has been officially launched in the United Kingdom.
According to the car manufacturer, the Audi R8 Limited Edition has been made in order to celebrate the company’s win in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Launching the Audi R8 Limited Edition in the United Kingdom isn’t quite a new “event” but even so, what is mostly interesting about it is that the carmaker has chosen the V8 engine for this model. If you thought that a limited edition of a supercar, developed to celebrate the company’s 24 Hours of Le Mans win, would be powered by its largest engine possible, then you’re obviously wrong, not the Audi.
The Audi R8 Limited Edition is taking its power from the standard 4.2 liter V8 FSI engine which is developing a total output of 424 horsepower and can be mated to either a manual or an R-tronic transmission. The German model has also been fitted with an exclusive titanium effect paint finish, red brake calibers, carbon fiber insertions, Black Fine Nappa leather, stainless steel pedals, illuminated door sills, sat-nav, AMI, audio system and many other features. The Audi R8 V8 Limited Edition has been priced at 93.935 GBP or 150.000 USD. The limited edition of the supercar will also hit the United States.
