Audi-R8-takes-lasers-to-the-USOver here and in Europe, the R8 has had the benefit of laser headlights for some time now, but Audi has only just started fitting them to its US editions. To mark the occasion, they have released the quite stupendous car you see above.

This is the R8 V10 plus exclusive edition; it’s an impressive piece of equipment.

Decked out in a fairly conservative ‘Quantum Gray’, the colour scheme of the new R8 is in stark contrast to the aggressive yellows usually featured on supercars. To liven things up a tad, Audi has flashed a little ‘Solar Orange’ on the carbon side blades.

One purpose of the new car is to effectively act as a moving advert for Audi’s ‘exclusive’ customisation scheme. Inside, the cabin is decked out in a sea of Alcantara, carbon and orange detailing. There’s even fixed-back racing seats as well.

On the exterior, there’s certainly plenty of carbon. You’ve also got those fairly cool headlights.

Audi is only making 25 in total, and with a price tag of around £185,000, it’ll be a fight between fans with deep pockets.
