Audi-R8-LMX

 

German luxury car manufacturer Audi has begun the new year with a bang by launching its most powerful as well as the fastest road-car, the limited edition Audi R8 LMX in India priced at Rs 2.97 crores (ex-showroom Delhi/Mumbai) with a production run limited to only 99 vehicles globally.

 

The Audi R8 LMX limited-edition car becomes the first production car in India to come equipped with laser high beams. Audi has been a pioneer in developing automotive lighting technology. In 2008, the Audi R8 became the first production car in the world to boast all-LED headlights; this was followed in 2012 by dynamic turn signals.

 

Audi launched a new chapter in automotive lighting with the Matrix LED headlights, which debuted in the updated A8 in 2013. Now the brand with the four rings is igniting the next stage in the R8 LMX: the laser spot for the high beams. It increases the range substantially, which is ideal for a supercar like the R8 LMX.

 

With the new laser high beams, one laser module per headlight generate a cone of light with 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 colour temperature of 5,500 Kelvin– ideal conditions for the human eye that enable the driver to recognize contrast more easily and help prevent fatigue. The laser spot, which is active at speeds of 60 kmph and above, supplements the LED high beam in the R8 LMX and enhances visibility and safety. An intelligent camera-based sensor system detects other road users and actively adjusts the light pattern to exclude them.

 

Audi R8 LMX features a high-revving, mid‑mounted engine, double wishbone suspension and ASF (Audi Space Frame) aluminum body are closely based on racing. With 578 PS of power and 540 Nm of torque, its 5.2-litre, V10 engine accelerates the car from 0 to 100 kmph 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 kmph.

 

A compact, seven‑speed S tronic transfers the power to the quattro permanent all wheel drive system. 19‑inch wheels are combined with carbon‑fiber ceramic brake discs, which up front measure 380 millimeters (15.0 in) in diameter. Red anodized brake calipers shine behind the exclusive designer wheels.

 

Joe King, Head, Audi India, said, “What better way to celebrate another record year at Audi than bringing in a car which denotes our claim of ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’- the new Audi R8 LMX. The combination of LED and laser high beam lighting was used for the first time on the new Audi R18 e‑tron quattro at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last year. Audi is thus continuing its tradition of using racing to test new technologies destined for production. The limited-edition Audi R8 LMX is the first production car in India to come equipped with laser high beam lighting, a particularly brilliant innovation integrated in a sports car. The Audi R8 LMX thrills with intelligent lightweight engineering, impressive design and breathtaking driving performance right from the word go. The Audi R8 LMX is beautiful to look at and marvelous to drive. We are positive that the Audi R8 LMX will excite Audi enthusiasts and add more fans into the ever-growing Audi fan base.”

 

King went on to add, “Audi has always been at the forefront in lighting technologies. Audi was the first luxury car manufacturer to bring LED headlights in India. Last year, we introduced Matrix Headlamps in our flagship model, Audi A8 L - again a first by any luxury car manufacturer in the country - direct evolution of Audi’s signature LED headlights delivering a phenomenal 966,105,422 different illumination configurations. The introduction of the laser headlight to the Audi R8 LMX underscores our leading position in lighting technology.”
