Audi is using its success at 2011 Le Mans 24 hours to sell you an R8 with a few extras for a whole lot more money!

The new R8 V8 Limited Edition is only available  in coupe form and is offered in 10 units for UK customers. It will become available to order next month priced from £93,935. That’s about 10 grand higher than the standard car. But it comes with titanium-effect paintwork option and enhanced standard equipments.

The main features on the outside include titanium finish 19-inch ‘5-arm double-spoke Y design’ alloy wheels inspired by the R8 GT Coupe, and embellished by red brake callipers. All the optional metallic and pearl effect paint options will also be included in the Limited Edition price, but amazingly Audi asks you to pay more for the exclusive Titanium Metallic paint finish.

Inside the cabin this special model benefits from crimson red accents to the sides of its Black Fine Nappa Leather-upholstered seats and headrests with contrasting stitching, and leather-covered multi-function steering wheel. You also get stainless steel pedals and illuminated door sills with bright aluminium inserts carrying the R8 logo., leather on door panels, and special floor mats.

As for the equipments, the Limited Edition model includes satellite navigation, the Audi Music Interface (AMI), an interior light package and a  premium Bang and Olufsen sound system, as well as mobile phone preparation via a Bluetooth interface with integrated seat-belt microphones. The car is powered by the 4.2 liter 430PS V8 FSI and can be had with either manual or R-tronic transmission.

For even greater visual distinction, the R8 V8 Limited Edition is also available with an optional Carbon Package, which adds carbon sigma sideblades, door mirrors, monoposto, inlays and door sill trims. Perhaps most impressively, the racing-inspired material also frames the illuminated engine bay, giving even greater prominence to the potent V8 that is clearly visible through the rear window.
