Check Out This Frosted Glass Blue Audi R8 Coupe With A Dual-Tone Interior

Audi unveiled its updated 2019 R8 Coupe and Spyder models roughly a year ago, with a more aggressive exterior design, new colors and, best of all, even better performance.

This particular model that’s on display at the automaker’s Neckarsulm showroom is the entry-level R8 V10 Coupe, which means its 5.2-liter V10 produces 562 HP (570 PS) to go with 405 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque, an increase of 29 HP (30 PS) and 7 lb-ft (10 Nm) over its predecessor.

That much we already knew a long time ago. What caught our attention is how it has been specced. The exterior is finished in Frosted Glass Blue, which is an Audi Exclusive paint scheme.

Since this is a. a Audi, and b. a supercar, it’s anything but cheap. In the United States, for example, choosing such a paint job for your R8 V10 will set you back around $3,900, and that’s only because it’s not a matte color, otherwise it would have been $6,800.

In any case, this light shade of blue does seem to work pretty well alongside the exterior’s glossy black surfaces, such as the mirror casings, the Singleframe grille, front splitter, badging, vent casings, diffuser and rear wing. It may not be the most aggressive-looking R8 we’ve ever seen, but there’s definitely “something” about it.

Then there’s the interior, which may lack the R8 V10 Performance’s gritty Alcantara and carbon fiber trim, yet still manages to stand out due to its dual-tone blue/white configuration. Although it may not be to everyone’s taste, it’s definitely distinctive – and that is a bonus, especially in a supercar.

    I have been saying it ever since Bentley along with other engineers created the venerable 4.0T V8, Audi should have put that engine in the R8. Kind of late in the game to do so now, but they should have done so years ago.

    The interior is a little too blatant. Contrast that blue with something a little darker maybe? Otherwise, I love it.

  • SteersUright

    No thanks. I do love the darker blue on the interior though. I’d contrast it with black or a dark grey, definitely not white.
