Audi‘s stand in Los Angeles features not just the all-new Q5, but a special edition of the R8 as well.
Unveiled a couple of weeks ago, the V10 Plus Exclusive Edition benefits from the innovative laser headlight technology, which is brought to US consumers for the first time, after being cleared by the Feds.
No longer considered to be too bright for US roads, the system activates automatically at speeds above 40 mph (64 km/h). Additionally, the laser light is coupled with dynamic turn signals for the first time ever on an Audi.
Setting it apart furthermore is a Quantum Gray exterior finish, which is joined by carbon fiber-made front lip spoiler, fixed rear wing, diffuser and side mirror casings. This special edition R8 also comes with carbon ceramic brakes, 20-inch wheels and a plethora of amenities inside, from an Alcantara headliner, to black and orange leather.
Only 25 examples will be sold, with the price set at $229,200, excluding a $1,250 destination fee.
