If the car doesn’t take your breath away, the price certainly will.
Specifically developed for the Australian market, Audi’s limited edition R8 V10 plus Neuburg Edition is priced from $402,500 – and that’s before on-road costs.
Strictly limited to 10 individually numbered vehicles, the R8 V10 plus Neuburg Edition is named after the Audi Sport headquarters in Neuburg, Germany.
Powered by the award-winning 5.2-litre FSI V10 engine, the limited edition R8 produces 449kW of power and 560Nm of torque, and is capable of reaching 100km/h from rest in just 3.2 seconds – on its way to a top speed of 330km/h.
A seven-speed S tronic transmission and Quattro permanent all-wheel drive combine with the lightweight carbon fibre and aluminium construction, for a vehicle with not only an extraordinary power to weight ratio – but the highest levels of handling and grip even at the extremes of performance.
The R8 Neuburg Edition builds on the already impressive specification and equipment of the R8 V10 plus, adding a host of additional features throughout that distinguish it as a special model.
From the LED headlights with Audi laser light at the aggressive front end, to the 20-inch alloys in Anthracite gloss black, the R8 Neuburg Edition has a presence all of its own.
Gloss carbon engine covers and exterior wing mirrors and the Audi exclusive high-gloss titanium black exterior package are subtle touches that point to the special nature of the Neuburg Edition.
To take some of the sting out of the price, Audi is offering customers a set of Bang & Olufsen H6 headphones with subtle R8 badging, as well as a Samsung Galaxy Tab, preloaded with a beautifully produced gallery of images shot by celebrated Australian motoring photographer, Chris Benny Imaging, as well as the first locally produced 360 degree video of the Audi R8 in full flight at Victoria’s Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit.
