Audi R8 V8 Limited Edition

After taking home a victory at this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans race, Audi decided that the thrill of victory just wasn't big enough. Instead, it needed a full-on car to encapsulate the moment. That car is the all-new R8 V8 Limited Edition.

The car gets a touch of racing blood in the form of the GT-inspired 19-inch alloy wheels. Those titanium-look wheels are offset by bright red brake calipers and the car itself can be painted in exclusive bare-metal-look gray or any standard R8 color.

Inside, the red treatment continues with accents to the seats and dashboard offsetting the black leather elsewhere. R8 options that come standard on the Limited Edition include a Bang & Olufsen audio system, Audi Magnetic Ride suspension system, satellite navigation and Bluetooth integration.

Mechanics-wise the R8 Limited Edition is the same as the R8: 424-hp 4.2-liter V8 paired to your choice of manual or R-Tronic automated manual transmissions. Its performance should be identical to the R8 V8 as well.

For a little extra style (and money) Audi offers a Carbon Package that covers the side blades, engine-bay surround, side-mirror caps, instrument panel and door sills in everyone's favorite tech-weave.

Audi will build just 100 examples of the R8 V8 Limited Edition, all of which will be sold in the U.K. Starting price is £93,935 or about $150,000. Ordering begins this month.
