This is your chance to own one of five unique Audi Sport Performance Parts R8 Editions in Misano Red destined for the UK. Only 44 of these cars are being offered worldwide, with the UK models costing £176,650 each. The cars are allocated on a first-come, first served basis so please contact your nearest Lookers Audi centre for more information.
This special edition is the fastest R8 yet thanks to motorsport-proven enhancements that increase downforce and pare back weight. The aero kit on the car is made exclusively from CFRP and features large fixed rear wing and diffuser with red elements, side skirts with the Audi Sport logo, aerodynamic elements behind the rear wheel arches to channel airflow, more pronounced air inlets at the front and a deep splitter and sculpted canards that borrow their looks from the first generation Audi R8 GT.
All of these elements result in an increase in downforce so that at 205mph it generates 250kg of downforce, 100kg more than the standard Audi R8 V10 plus. At 93mph the aero kit doubles downforce to an astonishing 520kg.
Weight is saved with the 20" wheels fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, with 245/30 on the front and 305/30 on the rear, and ceramic brake discs that work with specially enhanced brake pads for effective stopping power. A lightweight three-way coilover suspension is fitted for full adjustability.
Inside, you'll find a range of Audi technology including Audi Smartphone Interface, rear-view camera, MMI Navigation, Audi connect and Virtual Cockpit. Features include an exclusive Sport contour steering wheel with a red 12o'clock marker and Audi R8 Sport exhaust.
