Laser lit Audi R8 goes on sale... only in USA


In what is reported to be a market first, Audi will introduce a limited number of R8s fitted with laser light technology but only in the United States.

Supplementing the existing full LED headlights and available only on the top range V10 Plus Exclusive Edition, the setup boasts four high intensity laser diodes which uses a phosphor converter to change the beam into a pure white light at speeds over 64 km/h.

Limited to just 25 units, further changes include carbon fire sideblades with a Solar Orange stripe, special Quantum Grey paint, black 20-inch alloy wheels, carbon fibre diffuser, front lip spoiler and a fixed rear wing. Inside, additional trimmings consist of black and orange stitched leather seats signed by Audi Exclusive, illuminated door sills with "One of 25" lettering, special steering wheel, Alcantara headliner and unique floor mats.

Set to debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show later this month, prices start at $229 200 (R3 089 249).
