The Special Edition Audi R8 V10 Plus

Audi has released a new R8 V10 Plus, the ‘Selection 24h Special Edition’ to celebrate the Audi team’s motorsport success.

The special edition R8 will pay tribute to it’s Audi racetrack sibling, the GT3 R8 LMS, which has now won 323 races since 2009, including the notable 24 Hours race at the Nurburgring. Audi has limited production to only 24 models.

The Special Edition will run on the same engine as the R8 Plus, a naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 linked to a seven-speed S tronic transmission.  The new car will be capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds, with an impressive top speed of 205mph, producing 602bhp.

The Selection 24h Edition receives unique upgrades; the diffuser, front bumper and engine cover are made of carbonfibre. The car comes standard with Audi’s adaptive dampers, laser lighting and dynamic steering.  Aesthetically, the limited edition gets a special paint job that mirrors the styling of the R8 LMS, with red flashes across the exterior and the R8 24h badge on the sideskirts.

The starting price for the special edition is £180,448. Delivery and distribution for the 24 models are still to be confirmed.
