2016 Audi R8 V10 plus selection 24h front viewIt is exactly one year since the Audi R8 LMS has made the memorable victory on its race debut at the Nurburgring 24 Hours. To commemorate this significant event, Audi is making a great tribute to the GT3 model with the release of a special edition road-legal variant. The car is so exclusive, that it will be produced in only 24 variants.

Impressive Exterior

Why you should be impressed by the release of this car? First, it offers competition-inspired styling enhancements: a tri-color exterior, which closely resembles its GT3 LMS. The multi-material Audi Space Frame body with its aluminium content and carbon fibre elements is finished in the victorious colors Suzuka grey, Mythos black and Misano red.

Secondly, it features exceptional specification options like the Audi magnetic ride adaptive damping, a sport exhaust for further amplification and laser lighting. Third, besides the lightweight aluminum structure, there is a lot of carbon fiber involved here, which also contributes for the reduction of mass. Precisely, from the gloss-finished lightweight material are made the following components: front spoiler, exterior mirror housings, engine compartment cover, rear wing and diffuser as well as the sideblades. The sideblades feature the ‘R8 24h' logo in a matt finish.

The last thing about the styling of this unique is the sport exhaust system and its tailpipes, which feature black trims; as well as the 20-inch forged aluminium wheels in 10-spoke Y design in gloss anthracite black.

Interior to Envy 

Next on the list is the exclusive interior, which features the driver-focused monoposto, full-leather upholstery and trim in rotor grey, with an Alcantara headlining. The inlays for the surround of the Audi virtual cockpit and the air vents are made from gloss-finish carbon, and they bear the matt-finish "R8 24h" logo. The illuminated door sill trims made of the same material display the serial numbers 1 to 24 for each of the limited-edition cars. Here, an exclusive feature is the entry lights on the doors. They project the Audi R8 logo onto the road surface.

Powerful Motorsport DNA

Since the selection 24h edition is based on the Audi R8 V10 plus, this means that it shares the exceptional 610PS output as well as the capability of speeding up to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds before reaching a top speed of 205mph. Furthermore, the technical pack of this edition comprises of a dynamic steering, an adaptive damper control system, Audi magnetic ride and Audi laser lighting.
