Pocket rocket redefined


AUDI is synonymous with probably the most exciting race of all - the Le Mans 24 hours. And to celebrate its rich heritage, the luxury German automaker has announced the introduction of a special-edition A1 - the R18 Le Mans Limited Edition.

With only 100 units set to arrive locally, it promises to be to a high-value proposition for fans of the brand. The R18 Le Mans Edition includes key styling elements from the R18 Le Mans race car, which has been adapted and translated to enhance the A1.

Among the design elements, the most symbolic is the number 378, which can be found on the car’s exterior and represents the number of laps that led the Audi R18 to victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2012. The limited-edition model also includes the winning drivers’ signatures on the top corner of the rear window.

The Audi A1 R18 Le Mans Limited Edition is now available to customers on all A1 SE (hatch- and Sportback) models at an additional cost of only R10 800 over and above the standard price of the vehicle.
