2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus Exclusive Edition with Laser Lights


Shown at the 2016 LA Auto Show Audi presented 1 of 25 copies of the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus Exclusive Edition with new, innovative laser light technology that sees far beyond the human eye. The $229,200 supercar is empowered with carbon fiber and comes in Quantum Grey with unique Solar Orange highlights. Each model receives a titanium black-optic exterior package with 20″ 10-spoke-Y-design spins in high-gloss anthracite finish and a special gloss anthracite front grille. Also, the vehicle’s carbon sideblade gets a Solar Orange painted vertical stripe, complementing the racing shell seats.

Each headlight contains one laser module that operates with four high intensity laser diodes. Each module bundles these diodes into a blue laser beam with a wavelength of 450 nanometers. A phosphor converter then transforms the blue laser beam into a very bright and pure white light. The R8 exclusive edition is also the first Audi vehicle to couple the laser light with dynamic front turn signals.
