Audi has unveiled a special edition R8 for the Australian market. Called Carbon Edition, the new R8 will be available in both V8 and V10 versions in both the coupe and roadster body styles. It will be limited to only 10 units with prices starting at $282,400 for the R8 4.2 FSI six-speed manual Coupe Carbon Edition and finding their way up to $407,200 for the R8 Spyder V10 5.2 FSI R tronic Carbon Edition.
As its name suggests, the R8 Carbon Edition will be distinguished by an exclusive carbon fiber styling package. Everything will be dressed up in carbon fiber including the front spoiler, rear diffuser, sideblades, exterior mirror housings, and door sills. The Audi R8 special edition will also receive an illuminated and black exterior package, and will sit on 19-inch wheels in a five-twin spoke design with a titanium finish.
Aside from the carbon fiber goodness, the Audi R8 Carbon Edition will be available in Ibis White, Phantom Black, Suzuka Grey, or Daytona Grey.
