The 2016 Paris Motor Show is still couple of weeks away, but preparations are underway for the event that will bring us some of the most important automotive debuts in the world. But while most vehicles have yet to arrive in the “City of Lights,” we found the Audi R8 Coupé V10 Plus “Selection 24h” Edition, one of the most exclusive supercars launched in 2016, posing in Audi City Paris’ showroom. Naturally, we spent some time up close and personal with this amazing machine and took some photos to share with you.

While we’ve already given the “Selection 24H” the attention it deserved when Audi unveiled it back in May, we had just a handful of photos to go along with the official specs. And all of them depicted the car’s exterior only. Now, thanks to the folks over at Audi City Paris, we can finally have a look inside the cabin and check out the many extra features that come with the limited-edition supercar. And thanks to its Rotor Gray leather, Alcantara headlines, and carbon-fiber air vents, inlays, and door sills, it’s quite the treat. Not to mention that it also comes with matte-finished “R8 24H” badges and R8 logos that are projected onto the ground when the doors are open, a feature that will only be made available to customers through Audi Exclusive.

As a brief reminder, the “Selection 24H” Edition is based on the R8 V10 Plus, which hides a 610-horsepower and 413-pound-feet 5.2-liter V-10 engine under its hood. Equipped with Audi’s permanent Quattro AWD system, the supercar needs only 3.2 seconds to hit 62 mph on its way to a top speed of 205 mph. As the name suggests, it pays tribute to the R8’s prodigious racing career, which includes countless wins on race track in Europe, North America, and Asia.

Why it Matters

Finding yourself next to an Audi R8 is always a good reason to get excited, but while the German supercar isn’t a very common appearance on public roads, it’s by no means as rare as a Ferrari or Lamborghini. The “Selection 24H” Edition, on the other hand, deserves a spot among the most exclusive supercars in the world not only because it was built in just 24 units, but also because of its unique exterior with blacked-out elements and red highlights, as well as numerous gloss-finished carbon-fiber parts. With all 24 examples already sold out, this limited-edition R8 isn’t the kind of car you’ll run into while driving to the supermarket, so it’s actually pretty neat that we found it in a showroom, likely waiting to be picked up with its lucky owner.
