New Limited Edition Audi R8 V10 Plus Looking For 44 Buyers Worldwide

Audi R8 fans living in the UK can now secure themselves a very special Audi Sport Performance Parts version of their favorite supercar, said to be the most capable and focused to date thanks to its motorsport-proven enhancements.

Audi Sport is offering just 44 examples worldwide, with the UK getting five of them in right hand drive form. Each car is priced at £176,560 OTR ($234,371) and features additional downforce thanks to a more aggressive aero agenda.

The aero kit was developed in a wind tunnel and built exclusively from CFRP, giving the car a harder edge, especially out back thanks to the large fixed rear wing and diffuser. Other features include the Audi Sport-branded side skirts, more pronounced air inlets, additional airflow elements, 20-inch multi-spoke fully milled wheels, ceramic brake discs front and rear, a deeper splitter and sculpted canards like those fitted to the first-gen R8 GT.

All these aero changes contribute to a significant increase in downforce. Audi claims that at 205 mph (330 km/h), this R8 generates 250 kg (551 lbs) of downforce, which is over 100 kg (220 lbs) more than the standard V10 plus model. Meanwhile, at 93 mph (150 km/h), the CFRP kit doubles downforce to 52 kg (114 lbs).

As for the interior, there’s an Alcantara steering wheel with a red 12 o’clock marker, a rear view camera, Audi Smartphone interface, bucket seats in perforated Fine Nappa leather, MMI navigation, Audi connect online services and the fully digital Audi Virtual Cockpit.

The five UK-spec examples are being offered by Audi Sport on a strictly first come, first served basis.

    Why not just save on marketing costs and ship them all to Dubai? I’m sure you’ll find 44 buyers there… if you add real gold rims and bonnet.

      What marketing costs? The R8 is one of the few cars that doesn’t need to be advertised as the whole world already knows of the car.
