Limited edition Audi R8 for the UK

Audi has unveiled a UK-only limited edition of the R8 V8 coupe, with the option of unique titanium-effect paintwork and extra equipment

Audi has announced a UK-only limited edition of the R8 V8 coupe to, as the company puts it, ‘honour the tenth victory for Audi in the Le Mans 24 Hour Race.’

Not that the name is going to win prizes for originality – this is the Audi R8 Limited Edition. In addition to the option of extra-cost ‘titanium effect’ paintwork that’s unique to the model, the LE gets several of the most popular R8 options thrown at it. Standard kit includes 19-inch ‘titanium look’ alloys, satnav, premium Bang and Olufsen speakers and mobile phone preparation. Audi’s magnetic ride adaptive damping system is also included in the price, as are various trim upgrades.

Mechanically the Limited Edition is otherwise identical to the standard V8 coupe meaning 425bhp and a 187mph top speed. It can be specified with either a six-speed manual ‘box or Audi’s ‘R-tronic’ six-speed single clutch semi-auto. 

It goes on sale in July, priced at £93,935 for the manual version – a £6000 supplement over the standard V8.
