Audi has created a special edition R8 named the Audi Sport Edition to introduce the new Audi Sport GmbH division (replacing the quattro GmbH). The new Audi Sport Edition will be a limited run of only 200 cars each painted with the Audi Sport colours of silver, red and black.
The Audi Sport Edition can be specified in any colour but regardless of the colour you choose the car’s side blades and side mirrors are finished in red. The front spoiler, Single frame grille and diffuser insert are finished in titanium black.
Finishing touches on the limited-number R8 are trapezoidal tailpipe trims in gloss black and 20-inch, 10-spoke Y design alloy wheels with rim flanges branded with the Audi Sport logo (245/30 front and 305/30 rear tyres).
Other Audi Sport Edition features are a high-gloss red finish for the brake callipers on the R8 V10 and the R8 V10 plus’ with ceramic brake discs are fitted with callipers in an anthracite-coloured finish.
Inside, you’ll find illuminated door sill trims with the Audi Sport label as well as the inscription “1/200” to further highlight the model’s exclusiveness. The seat backrests with the R8 emblem embedded on them, contrast stitching, and gloss carbon inlays which as you guessed are in the Audi Sport Edition colours of Red and black.
Also standard is the 5.2 litre V10 engine, which outputs 540 hp and 540 Nm of torque in the R8 V10 version, and 610 hp and 560 Nm in the R8 V10 plus.
A seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system handles power delivery to all four corners.
You’ll have to cough up 181,900 euros(£154026) for the Audi R8 Sport Edition in V10 guise, while the V10 plus version commands a price tag of 205,800 euros (£174333).
