Audi R8 V8 Limited Edition

The Audi R8 with the V8 engine sort of became a “blah” version of the R8 ever since the V10 version was unleashed. So perhaps to breathe some life into the original warhorse, Audi decided to come up with this limited edition model.

Meet the Audi R8 V8 Limited Edition. The car packs the old 4.2L V8 that delivers 414 hp but is given some added treatment. The car pays tribute to Audi’s win in the Le Mans 24 hour race.

The car gets R8 GT-based 19-inch rims with red brake calipers. The car also gets the red trim detailing inside. The rims and paint finish get a titanium shade. Carbon-fiber bits for the trim can also be had with a special package.

Only 100 units will be built and will be priced at £93,935 (or US$ 150,800 or Php 6.6M). Order books open in July for the British market.

We can already see Audi R8s being driven around the metro though most of them are the old V8 coupes. I wonder if there’d be a rich bastard who’d spring for one of these.
