Audi offering R8 Exclusive Selection Editions for 2012
Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Audi, Luxury
We've seen the glory that is the 2013 Audi R8, but before that new model officially goes on sale early next year, the current quad-rung supercar is offering up one final parting piece: the Exclusive Selection edition. And it's certainly going to be, um, exclusive.
The special R8 will be available in both V8 and V10 coupe forms, and Audi will only build a total of 50 examples (20 V8s, 30 V10s). V8 models can be had with a new Daytona Gray matte exterior paint, complete with a carbon fiber splitter, unique 19-inch wheels, carbon fiber rear diffuser, new black elements on the grille and exhaust finishers, R8 GT taillamps and red brake calipers. More changes are found inside, where a new leather seating package is on hand, including crimson elements and contrast stitching, a different navigation surround and a thicker-contoured steering wheel.
More of the same elements are found on the V10. The exterior is painted in Ibis White with Brilliant Black exterior features and E-Tron 19-inch wheels, and inside, there's a carbon fiber cockpit with black and white contrast stitching.
Pricing for the 2012 R8 Exclusive Selection starts at $137,700 for the V8 with a six-speed manual transmission. If you want R-tronic (you don't), that'll be an extra $9,100 (you really, really don't). V10/manual coupes start at $161,500 and R-tronic can be had with the ten-pot R8 for the same price premium.
