Matte-gold Audi R8 spotted in Dubai
It comes as no surprise that we find this golden Audi R8 super car in the oil rich capital of over the top tuning, Dubai. What sets this particular R8 apart from all the other GT machines that have undergone the King Midas treatment is that instead of blinding onlookers with a brilliant reflective surface, draws them closer to adore the matte-gold super car. This rendition makes the matte-black R8 with its stealth like finish look rather dull.
The new monochromatic finish completely changes the entire attitude of the pride and joy of Ingolsdadt. If before a mere 420 HP seemed paltry compared to 600 HP machines from Ferrari, those reservations will fade away quickly after being caught in this Audi’s glow, not to mention the amount of news that the all aluminum super car has stirred up in the automotive journals. Like despite earlier rumors there will be an R8 electric vehicle at Frankfurt. On the heels of the Lamborghini Gallardo Lp 550-2 Valentino Balboni, the German automaker was spotted working testing a rear wheel drive version and the very sheik R8 Convertible was spotted on the set of a major Hollywood motion picture.
