There are many ways to make an already great car even more special and that is to release a limited edition model, much like Bugatti have done with the Veyron. However, other carmakers are getting in on the act, with the recently announced Audi R8 China-specific edition proof of that. Although the Audi R8 for China price is MIA, we do know that it will be a lot more reasonable than the Veyron.
There will only be eighty Audi R8 China Edition vehicles; they will come in two different color variants and will be known by their colors, which will be the Audi R8 China Edition Malibu blue, or the Inverse. The former will have the main body in blue with the sideblades grey in color, with the latter having a grey main body and blue sideblades.
What makes this China Edition different to other models is not only those colors but also the 19-inch 5 twin-spoke “Y” design high-gloss black wheels and the carbon matt spoiler, which we have to say “gives it a much more aggressive look“, something we know the Chinese market will love. It’s worth noting that there are significant changes to the interior, which you can see by visiting the official Audi website, but there are no tuning tweaks or improvements to the handling.
As yet the Audi R8 for China price is yet to be revealed, but at least with know that apart from the different features mentioned above the Audio R8 China Edition specs will be just the same as the standard version, so you’ll still have the same 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 525 horsepower, which is pretty impressive when you consider how light the vehicle is. That’s enough for a top speed of 316 km/h and a 0-100 km/h of 3.9 seconds. It’s hard to know how popular this model will be, and not knowing the cost and when the new model will be available is not a good start to spark interest – although it could make those interested even more intrigued.
