This is perhaps the most detailed video you will find online with the Audi R8 LMX. Some consider this as the most appealing R8 ever as it probably serves as the last hurrah for this long-lasting first generation set to be replaced next year by a new version largely based on the Lamborghini Huracan. The car you are looking at is one of the only 99 cars built by Audi and all of the share laser headlights, a lovely Ara Blue exterior paint scheme with carbon fiber flics and a fixed wing at the back.
It can also be visually distinguished by the unique 19-inch alloy wheels, glossy black exhaust pipes and carbon fiber ceramic brakes on all four corners. On the inside it features Fine Nappa leather upholstery with Sepang Blue stitching as well as Ara Blue accents complementing the body’s hue. Audi has also installed illuminated door sill plates, an Alcantara-wrapped headliner and matte carbon fiber trim.
The masterpiece is found at the back where the naturally aspirated V10 5.2-liter resides with its massive 570 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) output. A 7-speed S tronic gearbox takes care of sending the engine’s power to a quattro all-wheel drive system which helps the Audi R8 LMX hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in just 3.4 seconds on its way onto a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).
Deliveries of the limited-run supercar started in the summer for those willing to pay the €210,000 starting price (in Germany).
