Audi has already launched the 2013 R8 line-up, but these models won’t arrive on the US market until the end of 2012. Until that happens, American customers will have to make due with a series of Exclusive Selection Editions created exclusively for the U.S. market. These editions will be based on both the V8 and V10 models and will be limited to just twenty units for the V8 and thirty for the V10.

No changes were made in terms of power, but the new Exclusive Selection Edition will be distinguished by a choice of new exterior colors and stunning exclusive interior finishes. For the V8 version, Audi will debut a special Daytona Gray matte paint combined with a carbon fiber exterior splitter and diffuser, 19" titanium five-arm double spoke wheels, a black grille surround, black exhaust finishers, R8 GT tail lamps, and red brake calipers. For the interior, there will be an exclusive leather package with Crimson Red elements and contrast stitching, exclusive leather Navigation surround, and a thicker contoured leather multifunctional steering wheel for a sportier grip.

The V10 version will be offered in either Ibis White or Brilliant Black finishes, combined with R8 GT tail lamps and 19" bi-color e-tron wheels. For the interior, the Exclusive R8 will get a carbon fiber monoposto driver’s cockpit, an exclusive leather Navigation surround, and a contoured steering wheel.

Prices for the new Audi R8 Exclusive Selection Edition will depend on the engine and transmission chosen. For the V8 models, it will be $137,700 for the R8 V8 with a manual transmission and $146,800 for the R8 V8 with an R tronic transmission. The V10 model follows along the same trend with a $161,500 price tag for the R8 V10 with a manual transmission and $170,600 for the R8 V10 equipped with the R tronic transmission .

You can expect more when Audi release a new vehicle. R8 is truly one amazing display of their dedication. The bad thing is that only a limited number of people will have the opportunity to own this car.

Why didn’t they make it non-exlcusive edition? I know they will get lots of profit from this model. I think they should make some adjustments.

Great profit are waiting for the 2012 Audi R8 if it is released this year. If they really want to release a 2013 model in this year, great sales would be in their table because people will be waving their way to buy this model.

Audi has known for its great styles when it comes to modeling a car. Having a 2013 model released on the mid 2012 will surely bring them great profit.
