    German luxury automaker Audi has revealed the Sport Performance Parts R8 Edition. The special edition of the R8 is limited to 44 units only and is priced at £1,76,560 (approximately INR 1.61 crore). To make the 'base' V10 supercar a bit more special, the manufacturer has offered a handful of go-faster bits.

    The Sport Performance Parts R8 Edition has been finished in Misano Red with a bespoke aerodynamics package developed by Audi Sport, while the body add-ons are made of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), reportedly developed in the wind tunnel, and include a front splitter, side skirts, aero flics on the front bumper and a racy rear wing. Other than these, Audi has also offered a carbon-fibre diffuser helping deliver 250kg of downforce at 330kmph, up 100 kg on the standard car.

    However, the effects of the new package are also felt at lower speeds, for example- at a more realistic speed of 150kmph –if someone’s in parts of Europe, the CFRP adds a double downforce to 52 kg. The special edition R8 rides on 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres measuring 245/30 at the front and 305/30 at the rear, while carbon-ceramic brake discs lurk behind for serious stopping power on the track. The tyres weigh a handy 8 kg lighter than the ones they replace in the car.
