Audi introduced a limited edition Audi R8

The German company has decided to abandon the entry-level R8, having previously released a farewell modification.

For the 2021 model year, Audi has decided to remove the entry-level R8 V10 from its lineup. The German automaker is offering a Limited Edition model as a parting offer.

Limited to 30 units, the Audi R8 V10 Limited Edition gets the aesthetic and functional upgrades typically found in the higher-spec Quattro Performance model, without the much-coveted V10 revamp.

The R8 V10 Limited Edition will be equipped with a carbon fiber front crossbar that saves up to 2kg in weight. It also comes with Audi’s magnetic chassis and dynamic steering, which work in conjunction with the vehicle’s selected drive settings. A sports exhaust system is fitted as standard for the pleasure of the driver.

On the engine side, Audi has announced that the Limited Edition marks a decade of V10 success – much like the R8 V10 Decennium that launched last year. However, it won’t get a powerful V10, so you’ll have to settle for 562 horsepower and 550 Newton-meters of torque.

Aesthetic highlights for the R8 Limited Edition include 20-inch wheels, carbon fiber exterior trim and aluminum-optic mirror caps. There will also be exclusive colors: 15 cars in Mugello Blue with a silver interior in pastel colors, five Avus Silver with black interior and red stitching and five Sonoma greens with black interior and gray stitching. Only five R8 Spyders will be offered and they will all be in Mugello Blue.

The limited-edition R8 V10 Quattro goes on sale this summer for $ 186,000 for the coupe and $ 195,900 for the Spyder.
