The Audi R8 LMS has won five victories at the Nürburgring since 2012 in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring. To celebrate these successes, the four circles represent a unique limit dedicated to Green Hell.
In addition to celebrating the aforementioned victories, he has Audi R8 green hell remind you how close to each other the road R8 with the racing special they have. “Supersport shares one concept with the R8 LMS race car and their development took place simultaneously. Half of the parts are identical. The special edition shows the closeness to motorsport and at the same time is a reminder of our legendary victory at the Nürburgring. “ explained Julius Seebach, CEO of Audi Sport.
If you like the limit, you must not only save, but you will also need a little luck. The Audi R8 green hell is limited to 50 numbered copies and the price tag in Germany was set at 233,949.59 euros, which is less than 6.3 million crowns. And watch out! Audi announces that the car will also reach customers in the Czech Republic.
As standard, the car is painted in a dark green Tioman shade, referring to Green Hell. On request, customers can choose white ibis, gray Daytona or black Mythos. The front hood, front pillars, roof and stern have a matte black foil in the style of racing cars on parts of their surface. In addition, all cars will have large, dimly translucent numbers on the doors, which indicate the order within the edition and at the same time resemble the start number. Selected details are painted matt black, across the body we find several GREEN HELL R8 markings and the icing is the 20-inch wheels in a dynamic design with double spokes.
Inside we find shell seats with a light construction, while the middle parts of the seating surfaces are upholstered with Alcantara. The same material is also located on the steering wheel rim with the red marking in the 12 o’clock position. We can also see the Alcantara on the screen above the digital instrument panel, on the armrests, in the door panels or on the upholstered surfaces to protect the windows. Almost all of these parts are decorated with contrasting stitching in a blue-green shade.
The R8 green hell is based on the Audi R8 V10 performance quattro in the coupe body. The atmospheric ten-cylinder has not been compared to a series of other modifications, provides the highest output of 456 kW (620 hp) and is combined with a seven-speed S tronic automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Supersport is 100 in 3.1 seconds and can continue at a top speed of 331 km / h. The quattro ATV distributes the torque between the axles quite variably and is adapted to the concept with the engine in the middle. There is also a mechanical differential lock on the rear axle.
The body with the ASF (Audi Space Frame) is made of aluminum and carbon composites. The floor of the supersport, including the connecting shaft, is almost completely covered by straight panels. In the front, two small diffusers lead the air into the wheel arches, which also serve to cool the brakes. In front of the rear axle, air duct openings are integrated into the lower protection panel, which supply cooling air to the engine and transmission. The brake discs are made of ceramic material reinforced with carbon fibers.
The Böllinger Höfe manufactory near the Audi Neckarsulm production plant produces the specialty. Here they place great emphasis on production flexibility. In the body shop, employees also produce Audi Space Frames for Audi R8 LMS racing cars in parallel with production cars. The four circles boast that thanks to this there is a continuous transfer of technology from motorsport.
You will also know the connection between the specialty and the 24-hour race car at the Nürburgring this year. The GT3 race car in the colors of the Audi Sport Team Phoenix with start number 1 and dark green foils is strikingly similar to the R8 green hell edition. Nico Müller, Frank Stippler, Dries Vanthoor and Frédéric Vervisch will take turns behind the wheel of the racer. Each of these four Audi drivers has won the race at least once, so it’s not hard to guess what goal Audi Sport has set for this year…
