Paying homage to the brand’s motorsport success.
Since 2009, the Audi R8 LMS has racked up an astonishing 323 wins in national and international races against some serious competition from the likes of Porsche, Ferrari, BMW, and others. To celebrate the car’s success and its victory at the 24 Hours Nürburgring one year ago, Audi has created the R8 V10 plus “selection 24h” special edition model.
Limited to just 24 units, the road-going, special-edition Audi R8 V10 plus “selection 24h” features a range of exclusive features that set it apart from the pack along with all the high-performance hardware we’ve come to love.
The new Audi R8 V10 plus “selection 24h” is powered by the same 5.2-liter V-10 engine in the production model that produces 610 horsepower, giving it a 0-62 mph acceleration time of just 3.2 seconds and 205 mph top speed. A low, 3,205.5-lb. overall weight is also a highlight and allows it to shine on the track thanks to its multimaterial construction principle.
Coming standard on the Audi R8 V10 plus “selection 24h” is a technical package which consists of dynamic steering, adaptive damper control with Audi magnetic ride, and Audi laser lighting.
Visually, the new “selection 24h” model wears a unique tricolor paint finish. Suzuka gray forms the base coat while mythos black and Misano red adds a more athletic character. Glossy carbon fiber shines on the front spoiler, side mirrors, engine cover, rear wing spoiler, diffuser, and sideblades with matte-finished “R8 24h” logo. Each of the trapezoidal tips in the sport exhaust system wear a black finish while 20-inch, 10-spoke Y-design forged wheels boast a gloss anthracite black color.
The special edition features continue to the interior of the Audi R8 V10 plus “selection 24h”. Here, a full leather cabin with rotor gray trim and Alcantara headliner make for a sporty atmosphere. High-gloss CFRP makes up the air vents and Audi virtual cockpit surround along with matte-finished “R8 24h” logos. Each model also features an individually-numbered illuminated door sill trim in glossy carbon fiber. When the doors are opened, entry lights also illuminate the ground below.
Only 24 examples of the Audi R8 V10 plus “selection 24h” will be made with orders currently being placed at 229,000 euros. The car will also be on display at the Audi display at the 24 Hours Nürburgring.
