Have you heard of the new Audi R8? Well if you haven’t, then after this description you will most certainly want to be a part of this very small Audi club. The R8, is already an exclusive supercar created by the German automotive outfit, so what makes this already exclusive car even more exclusive?

Well the idea behind the change to enhance the supercars exclusivity, comes from the Audi R8 LMS race car. This vehicle managed to win multiple events and competitions including the Nürburgring 24hrs event. As a result of this, there will be a limited edition R8 to celebrate the achievements of the car at the Nürburgring. So how will this be done?

The vehicle is lower and more aerodynamic making it look more aggressive and menacing. The front spoiler, wing mirrors, bonnet lid, rear wing and side blades have been remodelled to look like the R8 LMS and are all made from carbon fibre. The interior has also been remodelled. It has been given a more racing feel whilst keeping hold of its luxurious practicality. Also, there is a serial number stitched into the interior, so let us talk to you about that…

The new vehicle will be named the ‘Audi R8 V10 Plus Selection 24hrs’ and, it does sound impressive does it not? It is rumoured to cost around £180,500 but as of yet, it is unknown if it will be sold in the UK.  To prove its exclusiveness however, there will only be 24 Audi R8 V10 Plus Selection 24hrs created…
