Audi Cancelling Base Model R8, Says Farewell With Limited Edition

The entry-level R8's swan song gets some Performance trims.

For the 2021 model year, Audi has decided to take the entry-level R8 V10 out of its lineup. That won't be without a proper swan song, though, as the German automaker whips out a Limited Edition model as a bid farewell.

Limited only to 30 units, the Audi R8 V10 Limited Edition gets aesthetic and performance updates that are normally found in the higher-specced Performance Quattro model, sans the sought-after uprated V10 engine.

The R8 V10 Limited Edition model will come with a carbon fiber front sway bar that saves up to 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of weight. It will also come with Audi's magnetic ride and dynamic steering that works together with the car's drive select settings. It will also come standard with a sport exhaust system for the driver's aural pleasure.

As for the engine, Audi announced the Limited Edition celebrates the V10's decade of success – much like the R8 V10 Decennium that was released last year. However, it won't get the high-powered V10, though (because what's the point), so you'll have to settle for 562 horsepower and 406 pound-feet (550 Newton-meters) of torque.

Aesthetic exclusives for the R8 Limited Edition include 20-inch milled wheels, carbon fiber exterior lower trim, and alu-optic mirror caps. Colors will be exclusive as well, namely 15 Mugello Blue with pastel silver interior, five Avus Silver with black interior and red stitching, and five Sonoma Green with black interior and gray stitching. Only five R8 Spyder will be offered and they will all come in Mugello Blue.

The Limited Edition R8 V10 Quattro will go on sale this summer $186,000 for the Coupe and $195,900 for the Spyder. There isn't any announcement of a price increase for the R8 V10 Performance Quattro, which will continue for the 2021 model year.
