The Limited Edition Audi R8 LMX is here with its revolutionary laser high beam lighting

Mumbai, 15 January 2015: The limited edition Audi R8 LMX has been launched in India. The super car that offers breathtaking performance and groundbreaking technology, is the first production car with laser high beam lighting in India.

The Audi R8 LMX is a top‑of‑the‑line Audi model with a customized paint finish in Ara Blue, crystal effect. A large fixed rear spoiler and exteriors in matt carbon finish, titanium grey and high-gloss black tailpipes makes it a visual delight on the streets.

The interiors have blue accents throughout, with the bucket seats in Fine Nappa leather with subtle contrasting Sepang Blue diamond patterns, and the backrest in Ara Blue. The matte carbon center tunnel console and cockpit is illuminated with aluminum inlays bearing the limited-edition number, integrated into the CFRP door sill trims.

The high-revving, mid‑mounted engine, double wishbone suspension and ASF (Audi Space Frame) aluminum body ensure 570 hp(419 kW) of power and 540 Nm (398.3 lb‑ft) of torque. The 5.2L V10 engine zips from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds, making it the fastest as well as the most powerful Audi R8 ever. It has a top speed of 320 km/h and a compact, seven‑speed S tronic that transfers the power to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. 19‑inch wheels are combined with carbon‑fiber ceramic brake discs, and the red anodized brake calipers shine behind the exclusive designer wheels.

About Laser High Beam Lighting in the Audi R8 LMX:
The revolutionary laser beam lights are activated at a speed of 60 kmph (37 mph) and above. The laser light spots offer a higher range of visibility, thus enhancing safety. A single laser module per headlight generates a cone of light that is twice the range of the all-LED headlight. Each module comprises four high-power laser diodes. With a diameter of just 300 micrometers, these generate a blue laser beam with a wavelength of 450 nanometers. A phosphor converter transforms this into roadworthy white light with a color temperature of 5,500 Kelvin – ideal conditions for the human eye that enable the driver to recognize contrast more easily and help prevent fatigue. Fitted with an intelligent camera based sensor system, the headlamps also detect other road users and actively adjust the light pattern to avoid dazzle.
