If you are an Audi fan you will be glad to find out that the 2012 Audi R8 is available in two limited special editions but only on the US market. These “Exclusive Selection Editions” (as they are called by Audi) will be manufactured only in 50 units: 20 models will be equipped with a 4.2-liter V8 engine while the other 30 units will be powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine.
The special V8 version of Audi R8 comes with 19-inch titanium wheels, a black grille and carbon fiber splitter and diffuser. The eye-catching exterior design impresses with its Daytona Gray matte paint and is completed by a leather interior. So, stepping inside this car you will be impressed by the Crimson Red trim, the sporty steering wheel, the navigation system surrounded by high quality leather and the high performance Bang&Olufsen audio system. For this version you can choose a manual transmission or an R-tronic transmission. The price of the Audi R8 (V8 model) varies between $137,700 and $146,800.
When it comes to the V10 model, I must mention that it stands out because of a few exterior touches such as R8 GT tail lamps and 19-inch two tone wheels. The interior is designed to provide comfort and elegance, so you will be impressed by black leather adorned with Alabaster white stitching and a sport steering wheel similar to that of the V8 model. In addition, the V10 version allows its buyers to choose between a six-speed manual transmission and an R-tronic transmission.
